When I wash my Merino wool I gently wring it out wrapped in a towel and lay it flat to dry. It will shrink if I don't manually stretch it out as it dries. I can control/eliminate the shrinkage by how I stretch it out as it dries. I can, to some extent, make it skinnier and longer or shorter and fatter.
