Looking After Your Knitwear
These simple instructions explain the best ways to look after your knitwear so that it will continue to serve you well for many years.
Moths are a fact of life but there are preventions that you can take to avoid them:
Woollens should be clean before storing. Moths love to munch on a food stain.
We suggest placing each piece into individual ziplock freezer bags before packing away for the summer months.
Moths love a dark, still, dusty corner. It is helpful to keep your drawers and wardrobe clean and dust free. Give them a regular vacuum.
Keep your wardrobe and drawers shut.
There are natural repellents available.

Washing & Drying
We recommend dry cleaning, however you can hand-wash carefully using the following instructions:
Hand wash in cold water with a specialist wool detergent. Look out for a Woolmark symbol on the packaging. We don’t recommend using a washing machine, as your knits could shrink.
Press out excess water in the sink, then gently press between a folded towel to soak up more water, do not wring out.
Lay flat to dry, away from direct heat.
