One of the best things about cold weather is bundling up in a big, cozy sweater. Unfortunately, many sweaters are made of itchy material that makes them uncomfortable to wear and the exact opposite of cozy. If you have an itchy sweater that you would like to transform into comfortable attire, there are things you can do to make it softer and more comfortable.

Fill a basin with warm, but not hot, water. Place the sweater in the basin and let it soak until it is completely wet.

Take the sweater out of the basin, lay it flat on a towel and press the excess water out of it.

Fill the basin with warm, but not hot, water once again. Put two tablespoon of conditioner for "normal" hair into the water.

Soak the sweater in the basin for approximately 10 minutes, letting it absorb the conditioner.

Remove the sweater from the basin. Lay it flat on a towel, making sure not to twist or wring it, as this may cause it to lose its shape.

Gently pat the excess water out of the sweater with another towel. Allow it to air dry. After it has dried, the sweater should feel softer on your skin.
