  • At what wash temperature would a woollen garment start to shrink?

    Have a jumper or two that I'd like to drop half a size.

  • the problem is different aspects of the garment are likely to shrink differently, so sleeves are likely to lose more length than width etc so the garment may not retain proportions post shrinking

    also the agitation in the washing machine contributes to shrinkage, so you may find a cooler longer wash or more vigorous spin cycle could have a significant effect
