Care & Wear
Your Knit-ted clothing is a beautiful investment for a sustainable wardrobe. With the right care you can enjoy wearing it for years. We’d love to give you our tips to give your knitwear the right tender, love and care.
• Follow the care label
Make sure you wash and dry your garments the right way. Always read the attached washing label and its wash- and dry instructions. Wash your garments inside out.
• Use a laundry bag
During machine wash your garment is exposed to an amount of friction. Therefore use a laundry bag to protect your garments from creases, lint and pilling.
• Air often and wash infrequent
Don’t wash your garments more often than necessary. Wool is self-cleaning, meaning that your wool garments stay fresh without washing. To freshen up your garments, hang them outside or near a window to air. It’s time to wash your garment if the smell hasn’t disappeared after airing.
• Wool wash program
Did you know that wool can be washed in hot water? Wool will only shrink when hot water is combined with motion. The garment should be completely still during the washing process. Therefore only machine wash your wool garments on a short wool program, or hand wash.
• Wool detergent
Wash wool with a special wool detergent. These laundry detergents are free of enzymes. Detergents with enzymes will destroy the protein in the wool and could result in small holes in your garment.
• Don't tumble dry
We honestly don't recommend that you tumble dry anything but bed linen and towels. If you do decide to use the tumble dryer, please use tumble dry balls to seperate the garments and shorten the drying time.
• Knitwear - dry on flat surface
Keep your knitwear in shape by drying them on a flat surface. Gently squeeze as much water out as possible. Put a towel underneath which will soak up the water. Flip the garment once in a while.
• Other - dry on hanger
Cotton, viscose and linen items dry best hanging on a hanger. First stretch out the garment properly and flatten any creases.
• Stain treatment
Treat a stain as soon as possible. Waiting until the stain has dried to treat it increases the risk of it becoming permanent.
Keep your knitwear nice in shape by folding it flat instead of hanging in your wardrobe. Hanging knitwear on a hanger will increase the risk of it losing its shape.
Wool is a natural fibre, during use little pilling lumps may occur. You can easily remove pilling by gently brushing with a knitwear comb, a fabric shaver, or just by picking them off.
Be careful with jewelry and other sharp items. We advice you to put your clothing on first and your jewelry last.
• Losing mohair
Mohair loses hair during use. Please take care when wearing mohair items on dark clothing.
