J Crew sweater smelled after washing?

I washed a sweater that I purchased from J Crew and it smells really bad, sort of like ammonia.

The mix in the sweater is 36% viscose 34% nylon 25% merino wool 5% alpaca. I'm not sure if anyone else has had this problem or knows what's wrong but I'm worried I have a problem with my washer

    Usually anything made with wool and alpaca should not be washed in the machine. It should be dry cleaned only. Does the tag say to put it in the machine? I would call J Crew if you washed it per the label and ask for a replacement or refund.

    I recommend you wash it lower back in chilly water wash. Do the comparable with a towel. Then somewhat of laying it flat, placed it on a flat hanger. do not carry close via shoulders. carry close finished sweater and placed it on a bathtub rod to dry. good luck.

    You're smelling wet hair. When it dries the smell will be gone
