Pretty Near Perfect

I used unshrinkit on a hand-knit scarf I had made of wool with angora fibers. It had been through the washer and was about one-third it's original size and felt like it was made of felt.

While not quite perfectly restored, it is now possible to see the knitting stitches, and it feels soft and fluffy again.

Thanks for rescuing my favorite scarf.

Love it! This brought my merino wool sweater back to its original shape. I am grateful I was able to save it. It did smell a bit like perm solutionlution while wet and I was afraid it might leave my sweater tinged with that smell. But as soon as it is dry the smell is gone!More > < Less

I've had a sweater in my drawer for approximately 2 years! I shrunk it after only wearing it a few times. When I swa what the product promised I thought it couldn't hurt to try.
I was pleasantly surprised that it REALLY worked!

This really does work! I dry cleaned my favorite cashmere sweater because it was my favorite - (I usually hand wash my sweaters.) Lo and behold! and behold! and to my dismay: The cleaners shrunk my sweater at least 2 sizes!!
Unshrinkit did the trick!
I am totally amazed and very grateful!

About Unshrinkit

Reversal of misfortune

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.
