I bought some wool nikky covers off fsot and they had clearly been shrunk. I think, however that the process would be difficult to control. Given the choice I would exchange. Also, the ones I got, the inner layer shrunk more than the outer, so the outer was still a large or maybe medium but the inner was more like a small, so the outer kind of gaped. I managed to stretch two of them out enough to be usable as mediums but one I ripped, so I took it apart and sewed the inner into the outer. It works but I lost the gussets and wish I had them.

Anyway. Yes it's possible but I wouldn't recommend it. HTH

Yep, any wool that isn't pre-shrunk can shrink, but I also wouldn't recommend it. You have no idea how much it will shrink and it's loose some softness and a lot of stretch.
