1

Soak It in Water

Soak It in Water Grab your sweater and flip it inside out. After you do that, you should soak it in a mixture of cold water and white vinegar. Leave it there for 15 minutes, and then drain it.

2

Add Conditioner

Add Conditioner While your sweater is still wet from the first step, you should grab some hair conditioner and rub it into the fibers of your sweater. Just don't use a brand that's too cheap, because it might contain wax that could ruin your outfit.

3

Let It Set

Let It Set Leave the conditioner on your sweater for around 30 minutes. Once that time is up, you should rinse it off with cold water.

4

Let It Dry

Let It Dry Then, you should place your sweater on a towel to let it air dry. You don't want to use a blowdryer for this.

5

Place in the Freezer

Place in the Freezer Now it's time to fold your sweater up, place it in a large ziplock bag, and place it in the freezer. Leave it there overnight. "The vinegar and conditioner softens the fibers, while the freezer keeps the shorter fibers from sticking out, sort of like how a cold blast from the hair-dryer smooths your hair."

Did anyone try this yet? Sounds a little too good to be true, and if you would wash your sweater I guess you would have to start all over again? In general itching is because the wool fibers are shorter, higher quality wool usually itches less.
