How much does wool shrink when put in the dryer?

It normally shrinks a dress size but if washed properly or hand washed it stays the same. Another trick is to put vaseline (or a grease of some sort) on the stitching and then wash it. This keep the stitching in a tight hold so as not to release it and become shrunk or mishaped.
