How to shrink a felt hat?

I purchased a wonderful wool felt hat on E-Bay but it is too large for me. The label reads to wipe clean with water only. But do you think I could soak it in hot water to try and shrink it or will it disintergrate on me? I only paid $4.25 including shipping so I'm not out much if it fails. But thought I'd check with the "fiber ladies" here to see what you might recommend.

If it is felt then it has already been shrunk. It's possible that it would shrink more.
