Honey I've shrunk the cardigan!

So, my DP accidentally shrunk my lambs wool cardigan! He did put it on a 30 degree wash (as the label instructed) but didn't put it on a wool wash. So my beloved cosy cardie that I've washed quite successfully for 5 years is no more!!!
Any ideas on where to get a woollen cardigan? (DP is paying so money is no object! 😂) I know I'm clutching at straws as shops are no longer stocking winter wear! But you never know...

I got a lovely one from jaeger.
It got caught up on a normal coloured wash and when it came out it didn't even fit my 7 year old sad

Woollovers have every cardigan known to man.

Do you still have the cardigan? If it's pure lambs wool and not a polyester blend you could try blocking it.

Put it in water and on a towel or mat stretch it to the right size (you can pin it out). Let it dry naturally which will take some time but it might work. If it doesn't, you could try steam blocking to see if that works.
