Use a gentle detergent for wool. Set the washing machine on a short, low temperature wool or hand-wash cycle. If possible machine wash your knits in a protective laundry bag and always turn the garments inside out to prevent peeling. Lay down the knits on a dry towel and let them dry flat, naturally away from direct sunlight.
For dry-clean only items take your woollen knit to a reputable dry cleaner.
Always use steam for pressing wool. Set your iron on low temperature and avoid ironing when it is totally dry. Give your knits some time to cool down before removing them from the ironing board. Or even better yet, simply hang your woollen garments in a steamy bathroom and let the moisture from steam remove all unwanted wrinkles.
After some time of wearing and washing, fuzz balls may appear on your knitwear. Those nasty little buggers happen because the soft short wool fibres emerge on the surface and then rub their way into unwanted little balls. First, lay your knit flat and smooth out any wrinkles. Then shave the fuzz balls with an electric sweater shaver. Remove the loose fuzz with a lint roller or sticky tape. Your knit will look like new again!
Give your knit some fresh air. Lay it outdoors for some time and it will sort out those undesired odours, it might have picked up with time.
Fold your woollen knit nicely and lay it in a drawer or a shelf. It might stretch out of shape if you keep it on a hanger for a long time. To protect your precious garment from moths, we suggest using natural moth repellents. Place lavender or rosemary sachets or cedar chips in your wardrobe. Replace every few months or refresh them adding some drops of essential oils.
