Knitwear Care Tips

Store all your knitwear folded up on shelves or in drawers, hanging them up will ruin the shape.

Avoid a moth massacre by storing knits with bags of dried lavender or cedar balls.

Make sure all your jumpers are clean and stain-free when you put them away; they’ll attract moth larvae if not.

Follow the washing guidelines on the label. It sounds simple, but even washing at a slightly higher temperature can ruin your favourite jumper.

Don’t be tempted to cut corners by throwing your knits in the tumble dryer, there’s nothing worse than realising all your winter woollies have shrunk. Just re-shape them while they’re damp, dry them on a flat surface and be patient.

If your knitwear starts to bobble you can use a regular razor to remove pilling and keep it in tip-top condition for longer.

Which Material Should I Choose?

Cashmere

This is a form of goats wool but feels super soft and is the most luxurious material for knitwear. Cashmere is beautiful but needs to be handled carefully and hand washed.

Wool

Typically from sheep and goats, wool looks beautiful and is great for warmth in the colder months.

Cotton

Easier to take care of and will retain its shape better than some other materials but it does retain water so maybe not the best choice if it’s raining outside!

Polyester

Man-made and typically lighter than some thick wool garments.

Our knitwear teams top tips on how to care for your knitwear:

Storing Knitwear:
Knitwear is best kept folded in boxes or drawers, this will stop the garment from growing and becoming misshapen over time. Lyndsey says: ‘Hanging knitwear can cause jumpers to grow over time, turning jumpers into dresses!’

Bobbling or Pilling:
This occurs over time, and it caused by two pieces of fabric rubbing together or during the washing process. You can remove bobbles easily with an electric bobble remover, it leaves the fabric smooth and looking newer for longer.

Washing Knitwear:
Wash knitwear regularly. Washing in a machine at 30 degrees and under is fine, always wash coloured items separately and always follow the washing instructions carefully.

Drying Knitwear:
Try not to hang your knitwear when drying it as this can cause it to lose its shape, instead allow it to dry flat in a cool dry place. Stay away from the tumble dryer as this can cause knitwear to shrink.
