It couldn't help what happened.

Unshrinkit could only work so well on my wool scarf because the scarf had started to "feltisize". As it was explained to me the yarn has bonded over time and will now never be able to go back to it's original shape or softness.
I would definitely try it again, right away, and not wait as I did this time. Of course there was no Unshrinkit at that time. I had to give it a 3 because it couldn't do what it said it would.

Helped a little.

I bought two bottles (because it is a large sweater) to use on a favorite heavy wool turtleneck that my kids had accidentally put in the dryer. I followed the directions very carefully. It had a very moderate effect on the sweater and I was able to get it to stretch a little and hold, but I may have been expecting too much. It's probably much more useful for small, light wool, cashmere, or angora sweaters.More > < Less

I used this on a wool scarf that I previously washed (and dried) by accident. It worked pretty well, however it smelled horrible!! My entire house stunk really bad. I'd recommend using this outside.More > < Less

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.
