General tips

Before cleaning knitwear, please always check the care label inside.

The first rule of knitwear is hand-washing.

Use a hand-washing solution or shampoo made specifically for wool for hand-washing. Normal biological laundry detergents contain enzymes that over time might damage your garments.

Hand wash

To wash your garments by hand, you can follow below steps: 

• Turn the sweater inside out and place the item in lukewarm water with a delicate detergent. 

• Do not rub, wring, or strain the fabric; instead, gently press the water through it. • Thoroughly rinse with clean, lukewarm or cold water. 

• Squeeze out any extra water taking care not to stretch the garment.  

• Smooth the clothing back into shape on a flat surface. 

• Dry flat, away from direct sunlight and heat sources.

Storing tips

Instead of hanging your knitwear, which can stretch it out of shape, try folding or rolling it instead. If you're storing your knitwear for the summer, seal it in dust bags to keep moths out or place it in drawers with moth-repellent paper or  cedar wood block a natural ally against moths. 


The worst  enemy of our knits is moths! Always keep your knitwear clean when storing it because dirt can draw moths. Moths might be avoided by using cedar balls and lavender sachets. 


Make sure to periodically air, clean, and disinfect your drawers and wardrobes if you don't often wear your knits that often, in order to make sure your wordrobe is still a safe place for you favourite sweaters!

Pilling

Small bobbles or "pills" that occur on knitted garments, generally after wearing, are a fully normal phenomenon called pilling, which is brought on by the delicate fibers tangling together. These pills are typically easy to remove by hand or more thoroughly with a basic pilling comb/fabric shaver. 
By using one of this tools, once pilling has been removed and after a few washes, you will notice that your garment is even softer to touch.
