I wore my wool cap in the rain and I have some wrinkles along the seams. I've tried the Nu-Cap shaper, no luck. Any ideas?

Did you wet the seams again and leave it in the nu-cap overnight? Perhaps you can also wet the seams and straighten the seams again by "pulling" along the seam, then leave in the nu-cap overnight until dry

not sure how much that helps as I've never tried it. Wool in the rain is death! I have wool caps that i shrunk and the seams all wrinkle. It looks fine when I wear them, so I dont bother

Yeah those seams in the back aren't that tight against my head, so they still show up when I'm wearing it.

I agree with this. Thought it might seem counterproductive, wet the seems again before putting it on nu cap. Fight water with water!

Definitely. I had tried the nu-cap before on this but I think what really did the trick was wetting the seams and stretching them out.

If it happens again it can be fixed the same way. Wool hats are great because they are so easily "repaired."
