Mark From Iron on Wool Sweater?

An iron was put on a wool sweater and left a mark which has the wool flat and is slightly noticeable. Could anyone advise if ther is anything I could do to get the wool back to normal.

Hello Betty,
It's quite unlikely to totally restore iron marks on wool but if there was any scorch on the wool, use an emery board to gently rub it away.
Also, if it's a bit flat- try cutting a potato in half and leaving one half on the mark overnight. Next morning remove it and try to buff up the pile.
If this doesn't work, there isn't much else you can do i'm afraid, but i hope i am proven wrong!
Best of luck.
