Turtleneck sweaters are back in a big way – not that we ever thought they were out of style. So if you’re currently on trend and wearing them as much as I am these days, you’re going to stretch out that neck. Is it possible to fix? Absolutely. Here’s a quick and easy solution.

Have you ever mistakenly washed and dried a wool sweater? If you have, you know that when it comes out of the dryer, it looks like you bought it from the kid’s section. Are the gears turning yet? Yes, use that same concept to resize your stretched out turtleneck neck.

Wet only the neck and put it in the dryer on high heat until it’s completely dry. That should do the trick. Just remember, the wetter the neck, the more it will shrink.

Thanks for reading.
