When the sweater came it seemed a bit large so I went ahaead and washed it. Cold water dried flat. IT went from being a couple inches long in the sleeves to jsut about right. From overly full body that came several inches below my belt time to tight and a good inch above the belt line. I'm going to try washing it again and see if I can stretch it abk out a bit when wet. I've owned many other fine woll sweaters and know how to wash woll but this sweater shark by 2-4 inches in every direction on first cold water washing. I gave it two starts because the overall quality of constuction is good but just make sure it is way oversized or dry clean only.
