Our knitwear will last you forever if taken care of correctly. That is the magic of wool! We are often asked how our garments should be cared for. Wool is a natural fibre and will react to water temperatures and being spun. Follow these instructions carefully to avoid any shrinkage and to keep enjoying your garment.
Woolen knitwear does not need to be washed every time you wear it. If it needs freshening up, leave it outside to air for a couple of hours. Should the garment be dirty however, it can be either hand washed or washed in the washing machine using a hand wash wool cycle and a liquid detergent with a neutral pH.
Always wash your wool garments on their own, not with other wool products. Wool fibres can react differently when washed together.
To wash by hand, wash in lukewarm water 30°C / 86°F and rinse well. Roll the garment in a towel to remove as much water as possible and dry flat.
To wash by machine, wash on a wool cycle at 30°C / 86°F. Use only a low wool spin cycle. Do not tumble dry, do not hang to dry.
The garment can then be gently steamed with an iron on a low setting.
