For Merino Wool & Cashmere garments, we advise to handwash separately. For other knits, handwash or machine wash on a cool, gentle cycle with like colours. Use a gentle, eco-friendly detergent or wool detergent and avoid harsh chemicals or stain removers, which can affect the colour. If handwashing, soak for 5-10 minutes and rinse thoroughly, then roll in a clean towel and gently apply pressure, to absorb excess water. Pull gently into shape and dry flat, to preserve the fit of the garment.
MENDING & MAINTAINING:
Piling is a natural occurrence when wearing soft wool and cashmere fibres and can gently be removed by hand.
Snagging can easily be resolved by gently pulling the long, loose yarn back inside the garment and tying into a knot.
Mending is a wonderful way to preserve the life of a knitted garment and add character. We recommend darning; the process of sewing over the hole with new yarn thread, in vertical and horizontal strokes.
Dry your knitwear flat and store it folded, as hanging in either instance may affect the shape of the garment.
