I was so excited when I saw your comment on my post last week.
Yes, I could save my beloved jumper.
I went out and bought a big bottle of conditioner which smelt yummy. Not only was my jumper going to fit me again but it would smell of lavender as well.
I closely followed your instructions, I filled the sink with lukewarm water and the bottle of conditioner. I soaked the jumper for about an hour then I
pulled and yanked gently stretched my jumper as much as I could.
It looked bigger, I was very pleased and I laid it out flat to dry.
It was slightly bigger.
The sleeves are perfect.
Unfortunately the body is still way too short for me (and for Mollie) so it looks like my jumper will be consigned to the bin.
Thank you for the tip Deborah, I really wish it had worked for me but I guess my jumper was the wrong material.
