Care tips for knit
made from wool or cashmere
Wool is odorless and has antibacterial capabilities - so it hardly absorbs odors. That's why airing your knits is much gentler than a wash cycle and is usually quite sufficient.
If you still want to wash your favorite wool pieces, it's best to do it inside out and in a wash bag to protect the fabric. We recommend a special liquid detergent for wool. It dissolves better and thus protects the fibers without affecting the washing performance.
• Cold wash at 20°C
• 400 revolutions
• Pour cold water into a basin
• Wash out for 1-2 min with special detergent
• Let rest for 10-20 min
• wash out with clear water
• gently squeeze out water
Wool articles should be dried gently. Do not wring or stretch, or the shape may be lost. Carefully place on a large towel and gently roll up so that moisture is absorbed from the fabric. Then dry lying on a towel.
Favorite items made of natural fibers such as wool often develop small nodules called "pilling", which are simply caused by friction on the surface. Pilling is completely normal with fine natural fibers that have not been chemically treated and is absolutely not a quality defect.
To remove the pilling knots, you can use a lint razor, or carefully cut them off with fine scissors.
For the final touch, you can still steam up your favorite wool piece so that the hair straightens up again. And already her knitting favorite looks like new again!
To ensure that your wool sweater keeps its shape for a long time, be sure to store it lying down and do not hang it on a hanger, otherwise the fabric will lose its shape and warp. Add a lavender sachet to keep moths away.
