Can I Shrink It Without Ruining It?

Dear Andy. I bought a lovely 100% wool sweater in a size that is too big. (it was the only one available) Is there any way that I can controllably shrink it to a size smaller.— like just misting it with water and throwing it in the dryer for a few minutes? Yours, DPS

Dear DPS: Consider giving the sweater to a “larger” friend. You may shrink it to your size, or you may shrink it past your size, to fit a Barbie doll. Quit while you still have a sweater worth giving to a friend. Good Luck, Andy
