Try a very weak solution of fabric conditioner and warm water (a few drops per litre of water). Apply using a small sponge (don’t overwet), then gently stroke the surface with a folded towel to try to lift and realign the pile.

Rinse and blot with kitchen paper, then blot with a terry towel (or use a cool hairdryer). Leave overnight.
