Might as well shrink it up now.
I think I'll go ahead and wash it a time or two more. I had a top load washer at the time and was afraid it would get too tangled up in there, so I had my mom wash it in her front load. I told her I need it shrunk up, so I assume she used hot or warm water, but since I'm not 100% sure I'll just give it another go.
