At Threadicated, our mission extends beyond providing you with the finest wardrobe staples. We also want you to enjoy them for many seasons to come. While the garment's quality is important, so is your maintenance approach. Discover our stylists' top tips on how to take care of your knitwear in 3 easy steps.
1. Washing and Drying
The preferred method for washing knitwear is by hand, although you may opt for a gentle wool wash cycle if your machine provides one. Avoid harsh detergents, stain removers, or bleach, and instead choose a mild wool wash detergent. Once washed, carefully roll your knitwear in a large towel to soak up any excess water. After that, gently shape it to its original form and allow it to air-dry flat.
Avoid hanging your knitwear on hangers as this can lead to stretching and loss of shape. Opt for storing your garments neatly folded on a shelf or in a drawer for optimal preservation.
Elevate the appearance of your beloved knits with the aid of a fabric shaver, designed to effortlessly eliminate fuzz and pesky pill balls. A mere few minutes spent with this handy tool will restore your knits to a fresh and rejuvenated state. Additionally, a quirky yet effective trick involves placing your jumpers in the freezer. The freezing process tightens the fibres, effectively reducing any unwanted pilling or fuzziness. Once you retrieve your jumpers from the freezer and allow them to thaw, prepare to be delighted by their renewed look and feel.
So there you have it, the secret to unravelling the mysteries of knitwear care! By following these simple yet effective techniques, you can ensure that your sweaters remain not just stylish, but also endure the test of time. Stay fashionable, stay timeless and don't forget to ask your stylist to add knitwear to your next parcel!
