Fabric Slipcover Too Shiny

My armchair slipcover fabric is too shiny. The store owner told me that would disappear after washing it in cold water. It didn't. Help please.

If you have a receipt and/or have a good rapport with the store owner I would return the slip cover or simply 'gently' rough up the fabric with a fine grade pumice stone.

If the store owner told you that the shininess would come out and it didn't, then I would take it back.
