Woolease is 75% acrylic, so I wouldn't expect it to shrink at all. I've made sweaters from Encore, which has the same ration of acrylic to wool, and have never had a problem with shrinkage.

I erased and retyped shrinkage several times. I decided to go with it. I guess watching Seinfeld is a requirement to be up on cultural knowledge! I wonder how many phrases they've added to the American language?

Poor mangiano asks a legitimate question about Woolease and look what a debauchery we've turned it into!

Sorry! :D
