    This is where you need to ask your gran not TSR. Try washing it in cold water in future and by hand.

    yes.. but then at least the arms would go back to normal!

    try re-washing it, but when you flat dry it, make sure it's not at all stretched. if it's stretched when wet, it'll dry like that - which could have been your initial problem?
