WOOL CARE

Recommendations

High quality natural fibres knitwear requires 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.

ALPACA


WARM

STRONG

HYPOALLERGENIC

THE FIBRE

Alpaca fibre is a soft, warm and lightweight fibre, often compared to cashmere and silk for its fine touch and heating characteristics. With a natural color pallete of whites and earthy-tones and containing no lanolin, alpaca is a great option for the most sensitive skins.

HOW TO CARE FOR LONGEVITY
  • A careful hand washing is the preferred way of cleaning your alpaca garment, extending considerably its life.
  • Wash gently in tepid water with a mild soap. Rinse throughly in water of the same temperature, without wringing or twisting. Gently press the excess water out.
  • Alpaca garments must be air dried. Do not hang your garment, as its damp weight will stretch it out of form. Instead, lie it flat on a dry towel and roll it up, pressing to remove the excess water.
  • Then, lie it flat on a drying rack or a fresh dry towel, but avoid exposing it to direct sunlight.
  • After dry, carefully fold your garment to avoid creases, and store it in a drawer or on a shelf. Do not hang your garment, as it will stretch out of shape.

    CASHMERE


    ULTRA-SOFT

    LUXURIOUS

    COSY

    THE FIBRE

    Owing to its hollow interior, unlike many of its counterparts, cashmere feels lightweight yet warm and cosy. This fibres has a distinctive softness and a light, springy feel due to the unique wavy shape of its fine strands.

    HOW TO CARE FOR LONGEVITY
  • Pilling occurs naturaly due to friction and can be easily remedied. Lie your garment flat and carefully sweep it with a cashmere comb – this process also helps strengthen the fibres, leading to less pilling over time.
  • Avoid washing your cashmere garment often - it is preferable to air it between wears.
  • After some wears and when washing is actually needed, use a small quantity of a delicate detergent on a gentle machine cycle at a low temperature and low spin, or, preferably, hand wash and rinse the garment with tepid water.
  • Squeeze out excess water by pressing the garment, and do never wring it or twist it. Afterwards, lie it flat to dry on a towel.
  • Do not hang your knitted cashmere, as it will stretch it out of shape. Instead, fold it into a drawer when completely dry or store it in a zipped bag if you do not plan on using it for several months.

    SILK


    FINE

    DELICATE

    LIGHT-CATCHING

    THE FIBRE

    Silk is a very durable and resistent fibre, with a distinctive lustrous look. These low density, extremely fine, fibres can be spun into a lightweight, breathable yarn that feels incredibly soft against the skin.

    HOW TO CARE FOR LONGEVITY
  • Instead of washing after every wear, you can hang your silk garments to be aired, away from direct sunlight, to avoid colour damage.
  • Hand washing is reccomended, preferably in tepid water without fully soaking the garment, to avoid colour fading. Rinse without wringing.
  • If you opt to use a machine, use the gentle cycle, a low spin and a small amount of detergent. A mesh bag can help protect silk garments from twisting too much.
  • To dry, lie it flat on a towel. After dry, iron on the lowest temperature, or steam the garment, then carefully store it.

    SUPERFINE WOOL


    WARM

    INSULATING

    BREATHABLE

    THE FIBRE

    Superfine wool comes from the finest and softest fleece of sheep, which is shorn after the winter and spun into yarn. The dense yarn creates a natural barrier to the elements and offers some water resistance.

    HOW TO CARE FOR LONGEVITY
  • Wool is resistant to dirt and dust due to its natural coating, so there is no need to wash wool garments after each wear.
  • Pills occur naturally with friction and can be easily removed with a pilling comb.
  • Hand washing is preferred, using a small amount of gentle detergent in tepid water. Alternatively, use a gentle machine cycle at 30°C or less.
  • Use a low spin or better yet, no spin and squeeze out the water, without wringing.
  • Dry knitted wool garments flat on a towel to prevent them from stretching out of shape.
  • It is best to store knitted wool pieces folded and flat.
