I've recently purchased new cashmere sweaters. To my dismay, after only one or two washes, the sweaters shrunk and are now too small and no longer fit.

Prevent

How can I prevent cashmere sweaters from shrinking in the wash in the first place? I washed the sweaters in cold water and did not put them in the dryer, yet they still shrunk.

Fix

Now that I have too small sweaters, is there a way to re-stretch the sweaters and get them back to a fitting size? I've tried just pulling on the edges, yet this does not stretch it enough. I've tried doing this as soon as they come out of the wash and are still wet as well, yet that doesn't seem to make a difference.
