Is it possible to unshrink a jumper? I put one of my favourite ones in the washer. It said wash at 30 but I washed it on cold just in case. When it came out I could tell by the feel it had shrunk and having dried it, tried it on, I was going to throw it out .. howerever I found a website that says if the threads are still visible and it isn’t a felted mat then it might be salvageable. I’ve done as said and placed it in Wool wash soap. Leaving it for 20 minutes before it comes out. Hence me being here passing time till it’s finished. Will it work? Anyone successfully unshrunk themselves? Jumper, not themselves 😀
I have a blouse that shrinks every time I wash it. I pull it out whilst wet and then iron (stretching it as I go) whilst damp. It didn't stretch quite so much last, so it might have to go. How did you get on with your jumper LL?
