Cashmere, merino wool and mohair are materials that we currently use the most in our pieces. They all are long-lasting natural materials that you will be able to wear for years and years forward if you take good care of them. Knitwear made of natural materials should not be washed too often. Because wool is a self-sufficient material that doesn’t require a lot of washing. It’s great for the planet and your laundry runs.
All garments need and deserve some extra love and care. In our care guide below will guide you through how to wash, dry and store your wool & cashmere pieces in the best possible way.
First of all, do not wash your cashmere, mohair & merino wool pieces too often. Let them air between uses and only wash when really needed. If you get a stain on your piece, treat the stained area only so you don’t have to wash the whole piece.
When you do have to wash your knitted pieces we recommend dry-cleaning or hand-washing.
Always let your knitted pieces dry on a flat surface after washing, preferably on a towel. By drying them flat you ensure that the pieces keep their shape. By hanging them dry they might stretch and loose their form. Never tumble dry, it will shrink the pieces.
The best way to store your cashmere & merino wool pieces is by folding them flat on a shelf or in a drawer. Always avoid hanging them on hangers as it it might stretch the garment causing it loosing its shape.
When handwashing, soak your garment in lukewarm water and add your choice of detergent. Gently press through the fibers and let it rest for 15 minutes and repeat again. Rinse the clothes with cold water until there are no detergent residuals left. Press the garment rather than twist to release excess water and tightly roll in a terry cloth towel. Make sure to flat-dry your knits.
