Caring for your Knitwear

It is perfectly normal that when you first wear a pure wool garment, loose fibres near the surface rub together during movement and form little balls of wool known as pilling or bobbling. I have put together this simple guide to help you beat the bobbles and keep your garment looking fantastic for many years to come.

Handwash is Best

This is the gentlest way to wash your knitwear and the best way to avoid shrinkage and minimise pilling. Wash by hand in tepid water.

Wash your knitwear inside out

Any pilling caused by washing will be on the inside not the outside.

Use gentle, liquid detergent

Add a small amount of liquid hand-soap and soak the garment in lukewarm water for 5 minutes. NEver use regular washing detergent as this can damgae the fibres.

Squeeze, don't rub or wring

To wash the garment you must gently squeeze, without rubbing, the garment in the water. Lay your damp garment on a large bath town. Gently roll the town and the garment together much like a Swizz roll to remover the excess water.

Air dry flat

Pull gently to size and allow to dry flat on a clean towel away from direct heat sources such as radiators. When dry, press to shape using a damp towel or lightly steam by holding a steam iron just above the surface of the garment.

Remove any pilling

When the garment is completely dry, gently remove the small pill either by hand or with a hand-help sweater comb or razor - NEVER us scissors. By doing this after each of the first 3-4 washes, you will find that the pilling subsides and will eventually disappear.
