Why does wool shrink? When you buy a jumper/sweater, it is made up of long and straight wool fibers. The heat or agitation of the washer/dryer break the protein bonds and cause the fibers to curl up into a ball, shrinking your clothes.
How does Unshrinkit work? Our patent-pending product interacts with the proteins in wool and relaxes the bonds in order to allow you to straighten out the fibers again. Once you’ve straightened the fibers, rinse the sweater in cold water to remove the solution.
This allows the proteins to lock back into their original configuration!
When does Unshrinkit work best? Unshrinkit helps undo the chemical process when warm water or heat from the dryer cause the wool fibers to shrink. Unfortunately, it cannot save a garment that has felted (think tightly locked fibers) and lost all give, nor can it reverse pilling.
If you cannot rescue your clothing, please consider donating to St Vinnies or Smith Family
Please note that Unshrinkit does not work on felted or extremely shrunk wool garments as the fibers have physically bonded.
