High quality natural fibres knitwear require a careful care process in order to retain the soft touch and colour quality throughout the years. Next, we present the recommended washing and drying care for your knitwear.
Before washing, de-pill your garment and then gently brush the de-pilled area with an appropriate wool or cashmere comb. You can also use an electric lint shaver. Hand washing is advised since it lengthens the life of coloured garments. Turn the knit inside-out and hand-wash it in a bath of cold water, using a wool or cashmere detergent. Soak for around 15 minutes, and softly agitate it in the water with your hands. Rinse well in fresh water, pressing the water excess out without wringing nor twisting.
Do not tumble dry nor hang the wet garment. Place the garment flat into shape on top of a dry towel or drying rack. When dry, fold the garment, do not hang it. If storing for the season, store the garment in a breathable bag with zip enclosure and a natural bug repellent.
