It is true as chis said that washing tends to SHRINK wool.  However,
when the hat is thoroughly wet, you can stretch into onto your head,
or onto another form that is the proper size (which will be more
comfortable), and it will dry to the larger size.

I hope this helps.

Washing it in a sink tends to SHRINK it.
