HOW TO CARE FOR KNITWEAR
We believe that sharing how to properly care for your clothing is a form of love. A special kind of inheritance that you can pass on to future generations. Below are the recommendations for how to care for sweaters and knitwear.
HOW TO HAND-WASH
CASHMERES / WOOLS / COTTONS / SILKS
Hand wash cashmere/wool with cold water, adding a nickel size of gentle soap. Softly agitate the piece with your hands. Let soak for 30 minutes. Rinse with cold water until there are no more suds. Gently press the water out with your hands, being mindful not to twist or wring the piece (this will warp the garment). Lay the sweater flat on a towel and gently roll-up to absorb the extra water. Lay the piece flat on a breathable surface to dry, being mindful not to stretch the piece out of shape while laying. Let dry completely. If wrinkled, steam lightly until smooth. Ready for safe long lasting storage.
Some pieces, even if washable, have delicate stitches, or embroidery. If “dry clean only” is specified on the care tag, it is because the design of the piece is extra delicate.
