How to wash & care for your handmade items:

  • Hand wash only in cold water. This is so important.  Never machine wash your knitted garment, as tempting as it may be...you'll definitely regret it.  
  • Use a gentle, mild detergent without artificial colors or dyes.
  • For wool items, a specialty detergent, like Eucalan, is recommended. 
  • Gently agitate, never scrub or wring.
  • Gently squeeze out excess water, reshape, and lay flat to dry. Keep your drying knits away from any heat sources or direct sunlight.
  • For storage, never hang, always fold a knitted garment.  They can be weighty and this may cause strain on stitches, causing them to stretch and become weak and uneven.  
  • When not in use, store in airtight containers.  

 

Take extra special care of your hand-knits, they can be delicate!
