    Best way to shrink Lambswool jumper?

    Bought a jumper and it's a tad to big so i've washed it and put it in the tumble dryer and it's shrunk enough on the chest but the sleeves are still baggy? Any specific ways of doing this? 8-)

    roll them up

    hairdryer on the sleeves while wet?

    Depending on how talented you are you could unpick the sleeves at the shoulder, cut off the excess material, then stitch the sleeves back on. Just an idea! :geek:

    hot soak the sleeve only and hot hairdryer it
