Fiber care

We recommend the following method:

  • Gently hand wash in cool water (up to 85°F) with a mild soap.
  • Do not use the hand wash cycle in a washing machine.
  • Never use chlorine bleach.
  • Gently press to remove excess water.
  • Do not wring or twist; handle gently to avoid wrinkles and distortion.
  • Dry flat (lay horizontally for drying).
  • Block to dry (reshape to original dimensions while drying).
  • Smooth by hand while wet to remove wrinkles and straighten the seams and facings

 

STORAGE
  • Store handknit and hand-loomed sweaters flat. As a general precaution, we do not advise hanging knit garments.
  • To avoid moth damage, take normal mothproofing precautions.
  • When storing suede or leather garments, hang in a well-ventilated area. Suede or leather garments need to breathe so should not be stored in a plastic bag.
