    I have an older cashmere sweater that is great quality--no pilling, soft--but has stretched out because of the loose weave. I would be much happier if it was a size smaller all around. If I put it in hot water will it felt up or just contract? What is the best way to shrink it and maintain its look?

    A very skilled dry cleaner or tailor who knows how to steam and hand press a sweater could probably do what you have in mind.
