I made a pair of arm warmers for my friend, and they're a little too loose. I made them from acrylic yarn... He has a washing machine, but not a dryer. Is there any way to make acrylic shrink? :/

Not really, since they won't felt or shrink like wool.
But you could maybe thread some elastic at each end, and pull it tighter.
