Oh woe, woe, woe is me!!
I only bought them 2 weeks ago... They had surreptitiously crept into the standard 40c wash in then, horror, into the dread dryer!

Is there anything I can do to save them?!

Cushion covers?

Try soaking in luke warm water with baby shampoo then stretching. It took two of us pulling a jumper in various directions to get it back to the normal size.

Yes! Re wash them on cold. Whilst still wet, Roll towels up,and insert them into the arms and body, to 'fill' the jumper to the size of your body. Leave til dry.

Soak in wate with tons of conditioner, rinse & reshape
