Knitter's Review
September 25, 2014
the alleged miracle worker

We've all done it at least once. A beautiful wool sweater, a hat, or a pair of socks got thrown into the washing machine by mistake. What emerged was a shrunken tragedy.

A new product from Massachusetts claims to be able to unshrink those accidents, to revive those damaged garments and to make our closets whole again.

I had my doubts, so I ordered a bottle and sacrificed a sweater for the test.
