Question Shrunken Wool ?

I have a LB wool jersey cover that is labeled medium but it is too small next to another medium. I bought it used, and talking with Pam from LB, we're assuming it has shrunken up. We both remember threads about using conditioner to restretch a shrunken cover, only we can't remember how! Anyone remember?

Re: Shrunken Wool ?

UPDATE: YES IT WORKED!!! I used about a gallon of warm water, mixed in about a 1/2 cup of really moisturizing conditioner, and then put the cover in for about an hour. Then I took it out and stretched it all around until it was the size I wanted it to be, using the other cover that I have of the same make and size as a pattern. Should I lanolize it now, or wait until it's dry in it's new shape, then wash it in wool wash? Hmmmmmmmmmmm
