Our garments will last you a lifetime if you give them the love and care they need. Read on for our top tips to ensure a long and happy life.
Wool is naturally antibacterial, meaning it requires much less washing than you might think, so best to air them regularly and spot clean where possible. We recommend washing your knit twice a year as this helps the fibre bounce back into shape and your knit will feel like new again.
Our garments are hand-wash only, use a mild detergent or soap (we use eco liquid detergents suitable for wool) and submerge in lukewarm water for 10 minutes, then rinse your garment and remove excess water. Do not twist or wring to remove excess water, as this can cause the garment to misshape and the yarn to felt. Instead press gently between palms to remove excess water then roll the garment in a clean towel to absorb the remaining excess water before reshaping and laying flat to dry. Once dry, fold your sweater and store it flat. Avoid hanging your sweater on a hanger as this may stretch the garment. In the case of a stain, rinse the area immediately with cold water (warm or hot water might set the stain).
If you know your washing machine well, use the wool cycle and wash on a cold setting with a gentle spin. Remove promptly and dry flat.
We do not recommend dry cleaning your garment.
