    I have this cheap ass thin sweater from Banana Republic. It is 65% cotton, 30% silk and 5% cashmere. It looks great on me, fits me to a T. I usually wear it with the sleeves rolled up a bit.

    After a wearing or two, the sweater stretches out, especially the sleeves. Any idea how to shrink it back to where it was? Dryer on hot for 15 min? Wash then dry? Or should I just take it to the cleaners & pray?

    For my silk/cotton blend and cotton sweaters (similar thin cheap ones), I've found just washing them and drying them shrinks them back to size.

    But I'm not sure how cashmere would work in a washer.
