CARE GUIDE - KNITWEAR

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR FINE KNITWEAR

Knitwear

Whether made from wool, cashmere or angora, beautiful knitwear needs more careful handling than most fabrics.

  • Machine washing is fine, but always use the hand wash setting and never go above 30 degrees.
  • Fine knitwear should never be tumble-dried as the heat may damage fibres. Air-drying is far better.
  • After washing, lay the knit on a flat surface and stretch it out a little. Never twist or wring it to remove excess water.
  • Be sure to turn knits inside out first, and press with a cool iron.
