Generally, cotton yarn will always shrink a little in the wash. It will most often appear on the label how much shrinkage you can expect for the given yarn and how to care for your finished products to avoid as much shrinkage as possible.

Wash your cotton yarn
The more you wash cotton yarn, the softer it becomes, allowing the fibres of the yarn to fluff up and become softer. Think of it like a pair of new bluejeans versus your oldest, comfiest pair – it’s the washing that helps!
