How to care for your knitwear

We can help you to keep your knitwear in tip top condition, follow these simple steps to make your garment last a lifetime. We recommend hand-washing your woollen garments by following these simple steps:

  • Hand wash your garment in lukewarm water, first soak your item then add a small amount of woollen hand wash liquid. Soak for a few minutes.
  • Very gently squeeze out the item, make sure not to scrub or rub any areas as this may cause them to felt.
  • Rinse using lots of lukewarm water and make sure to keep doing this till the water runs clear.
  • Very gently squeeze out the excess water from your garment, this can be done by rolling it in a towel or you can let it drip dry on a clothes airer. 
  • Once dry you can iron on a wool setting with lots of steam into shape, make sure that your iron isn't too hot, we recommend ironing inside out.
  • If you are storing your garment it's best to wrap it in acid free tissue paper and store in an air tight box or bag.
