We were out all day yesterday with family so when we got home I asked DH to get the diapers ready to wash since we used so many. HE knows to watch out for wool! So he started the wash late last night and I got up this morning to put everything in the dryer.<br><br>
OMG! I almost fainted, in the bottom of the washer was my beautiful Dip Dye Kiwi Pie. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bawling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bawl"> I actually teared up! It went through the hot wash too!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: DH is really sorry and upset but it's ruined.<br><br>
I'm just having the worst morning. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Oh No!! That is so sad.<br><br>
I think that there might be a club that you could join, though. The one whose husbands have ruined their wives' wool.<br><br>
Did the color wash out or did it just shrink badly? And it was the small, right?

No actually the color still looks great. The sun that was dyed on it is faded but other than that the color washed well.<br><br>
It shrunk though and has almost no stretch to it at all. Before it was nice and stretchy. I don't know what I'm going to do, I think I might try the hair conditioner and see if it works.<br><br>
This was my favorite cover and I have no way of replacing it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I think that soaking it in hair conditioner can help get some of that stretch back. Take a look at Maria's site. I think that she has directions for it there.

Aww honey! I so know how you feel! DH and my mother together managed to wash my Aristocrat yesterday <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> It didn't go through the dryer but it is completely felted beyond redemption. I think I cried for 45 minutes!<br><br>

Oh no!!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> How very sad!<br><br>
I am so glad my dh has a fear of diaper laundry. However, my older girls have a nasty habit of throwing wool into the diaper pail with all the diapers. I have told them over and over again....I had one of my Sugar Peas go through the washer and dryer, back when they were HARD to get. It shrunk from a large to a medium, so at least it was still usable. But after the ranting I did, no one in the house has been brave enough to put any diaper related item into the wasing machine.<br><br>
I am sorry, I hope maybe dh can make it up to you somehow....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'm so sorry he ruined your lovely cover. Tell him to buy you two more (of your choice) to make up for it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
