So I accidentally washed two of my cashmere sweaters on warm and they shrank terribly, so I was wondering if I could use them to make covers? If yes, do I need to felt the cashmere, and how do I do it?

Thanks

If they shrank drastically and are less stretchy, then they're already felted.

yup as PP said they are already felted if they shrank.

I like 2 layers in the wet zone when I use cashmere for soakers

I like double layered for cashmere too. It basically makes for a bullet proof pair of woolies. I made DS a pair of yoga pants with 2 layers of cashmere, and they're great for night time use.
