Press the garment in a towel to get most of the water out and dry flat. Wool felts when suddenly exposed to different temperatures and agitated.

Note: I try to present yarn colour as true as possible but due to variations in device screen displays and light conditions during photography, the actual yarn colour may vary slightly from the colour that you perceive on your screen. Dye batches of the same colourways varies. Please note that I cannot offer refunds or exchanges on yarn colour discrepancies.
