I've got a "Fuzzy Dice" cap that is too big. Although I normally wear a 7 3/8, this one feels like I need a 7 1/4. I want to shrik it, but I'm worried about messin up the fuzzy dice texture, which is like a faux fur.

Anybody have experience shrinking this kind of cap?


put it on in the shower and then wear it till it dry;s

worked for me


I would do this at your own risk...

I assume yours is 100% wool, not sure about the faux fur,

it is 20% wool
and wool does shrink!

You can try and spray it with a water bottle until its damp and then wear it till it gets dry
