Ask the Laundress
I have a Geiger coat with attached scarf that I love that has become a bit stretched-out over the years. A year or so I tried washing it and reblocking it myself and it came out fine, but I had failed to remedy the size issue. Can it be shrunk further?
You can shrink your coat, however we cannot guarantee that you will achieve the desired results; it may shrink too much or not enough.
Laundering with warm water or using the dryer on the tumble dry, low heat setting should cause shrinkage. I would still avoid using too much agitation within the washer, as this may be too aggressive.
