Garment care guide

Our garments require care to maintain their beauty and durability over time, regardless of their composition. Below, we provide a brief maintenance guide.

It's essential to hand wash knitted garments to avoid damage to the delicate fibers. However, remember that frequent washing isn't necessary. Most of the time, simply airing them out in fresh air will suffice to refresh them. When it's time to wash them, use cold or lukewarm water and a mild detergent. Avoid hot water, as it can cause shrinking or deformation. Soak the garment in soapy water for a few minutes, then rinse carefully until all detergent residue is removed.

In case your garment gets stained, act quickly to prevent the stain from setting. Treat the stain gently with a mild detergent and cold water. Avoid vigorous rubbing, as this can damage the fibers. If the stain persists, consider taking the garment to a professional dry cleaner experienced in caring for delicate garments.

We attach a label to the garment with its composition, as well as a sample of the yarns so that you can perform tests in case the garment gets stained. Please keep both items in a safe place in case they are useful at any time.

After washing, lay the garment on a clean towel and gently press to remove excess water. Avoid wringing it out. Lay the garment flat on a surface to dry, away from direct sunlight and excessive heat.

Store your knitted garments in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. For additional protection, we recommend storing them in the cotton bag in which we ship the garment. This bag provides a breathable environment that helps preserve the quality of the garment and protects it from dust and light.

Interior Knots:
You may encounter interior knots in your hand-knitted garments. These knots are a reinforcement to prevent the garment from unraveling and are entirely normal. Do not attempt to undo them, as they are part of the knitting process and contribute to the garment's strength.

Pilling is common in hand-knitted garments due to friction and natural wear of the fibers. It may appear over time, especially in high-friction areas. To remove pills, use a lint roller or a gentle razor and pass it lightly over the garment's surface. Avoid cutting the fibers and be careful when removing pills.

In summary, proper care is essential to preserve the beauty and durability of your hand-knitted garments. Follow these tips and enjoy your favorite pieces for many years.
