ShrinkingWoolSweaterFilter: Ok, so I took a wool sweater, washed it in cold water then let it dry naturally. Result: it shrank! Now, I'm asking something slightly different than what you think I'm asking...

As it turns out, that sweater was a bit too large for me. So, the resulting size (after the shrinkage) is perfect! But...now what? If I do the same process again (wash cold, dry naturally) will it shrink further or has it somehow reached some sort of wool-size equilibrum? Help. Thanks
