My cashmere sweater had gotten too small over time. I love this sweater!! Can’t wait till winter so I can enjoy it once more.

Bought this for a merino sweater than shrank in sleeve and body length. Smells like the chemicals used in a hair perm. Unfortunately it didn't work on my sweater.
Not highly effective for alpaca garments

I have some socks that are 70% alpaca fiber that were washed and inappropriately dried and as a result had shrunk somewhat and the fabric had stiffened. I treated these socks twice with unShrinkIt carefully following the instructions but only see a small improvement in the garments. I tried stretching them onto my feet while still wet and also stretching by pulling with my hands but only see a relatively small increase in size and a small improvement in fabric flexibility. I would not recommend this product for treating alpaca garments that have been inappropriately washed and dried. But the product isn't advertised for this use so I would not count this as an indication it is not suitable for other types of animal or plant fiber.
Works as promised

One cashmere sweater was restored but one very, very old vintage sweater (possibly partially felted) couldn't be stretched. One thing I found objectionable was the odor. It faded somewhat put it was off-putting. I would use it again and recommend it.
Did not work

Shrunken Sweater Solution

This product was recently reformulated to relax the fibers and return it back to its original size. It's an emergency sweater savior for when your favorite wool, angora, or cashmere sweater mistakenly takes a tumble in the dryer and shrinks.


After inadvertently putting her brand new cashmere sweater in the wash and dryer, Unshrinkit co-founder, Desiree Stolar, did what any resourceful, modern day woman would do—she turned to the Internet for guidance. While she came across plenty of home remedies, nothing worked. That’s when she teamed up with some fellow Harvard Business School graduate students to invent Unshrinkit.

With the help of a chemical engineer, Desiree and company co-founders Nate Barbera and Matt Kahn developed​ a liquid solution specially devise​d ​to interact with shrunken, bunched up wool, cashmere, and angora to elongate, straighten, and restore the fibers back to their original "unshrunk" condition. There was such a great response, that they kept innovating and recently introduced a better-than-ever formula.

Now, when your favorite sweater takes an accidental tumble in the dryer and ends up smaller than you’ll ever be, there’s no need to dismay. Simply dunk that sweater in a bottle of Unshrinkit mixed with water for 30 minutes, rinse, stretch, and lay flat to dry. more Their Story
