We use the finest fabrications like super soft merino wool and featherweight cashmere in our signature knitwear styles.
Caring for knitwear can seem a little tricky, but by following the below steps you will be able to ensure the longevity of your knits and enjoy them for seasons to come.
Air out knitwear if it's not visibly dirty, placing it in an airy, sheltered space for 1-2 days (avoid direct sunlight).
Spot clean stains promptly with mild detergent and a damp cloth, blotting instead of rubbing.
Hand wash wool and cashmere with cold water and wool-safe detergent, gently agitate, and air-dry flat.
Consider dry cleaning if unsure, ensuring chemicals are safe for natural fibres.
Pilling is caused by friction and is a natural progression of wear over time. To reduce pilling, try to avoid rubbing or friction against your knitwear. Wool and cashmere are more prone to pilling than other fibers. To remove pills, use a de-pilling comb on a dry garment. Gently brush the garment, taking care not to press too hard. Repeat until all pills have been removed.
Snagging and pulling
Knitwear is prone to snagging and pulling. If you notice a snag, do not cut the yarn. Instead, pull the snag through to the reverse side of the garment. If the snag is still in a loop, cut it in half to form two yarn ends. Carefully tie the ends together to secure the knit and prevent further damage. Take care not to pull the ends too tight, as this may cause a ladder in the knit surface. Once the knot is secure, carefully trim the ends.
To store knitwear for the summer, follow these steps:
1. Hand wash the knitwear gently or have it dry-cleaned.
2. Fold the knitwear and place each piece in a vacuum bag with a small cotton bag of cedar wood balls.
3. Store the vacuum bags in a sealed clear plastic box, with heavier knits on the bottom and lighter ones on the top.
4. When you unpack the knitwear in the autumn, you can easily regain the shape and texture of the garments with a steamer.
