Rx for over-felted knits

Real Simple magazine had an article in this month's issue on "fixing" shrunken garments - I tried it on my felted cloche (that I had accidently felted a little too much) and it definitely helped! Just hand wash the garment with cold water and a little baby shampoo, then rinse and stretch to the desired shape while wet and allow to dry. I was able to stretch the brim of the hat back into shape. As an added bonus, it softened the material a bit. Now I just have to get the trim on and finalize the hat before winter is over... :)
