We want to support you in taking proper care of your products to increase their longevity and last in your closet for as long as possible. Our sweaters are made of natural fibers without the use of synthetic dyes. They are naturally softer in hand because they have retained the integrity of the natural fiber without the compromise and breaking down with harsh treatments.
HOW TO CLEAN
- All of our sweaters may be hand-washed in cold water with a gentle wool/cashmere detergent or shampoo. When in doubt, due to the delicacy of your sweater we recommend using a green dry cleaner, if available.
- Eliminate water excess by laying your sweater flat inside a towel, roll the whole thing up, and squeeze as much excess water out as you can. Do not wring.
- Lay your semi-wet sweater out flat on a dry towel and leave it to dry.
- Steam to remove wrinkles, if necessary. Use distilled water and cover steamer with a clean towel to avoid getting hard water spots on the fibers. If you don’t have a steamer handy, use an iron set to the “steam” setting, and hover over the item—avoid making direct contact.
- Pilling naturally occurs on natural fibers. We recommend using a fabric comb to gently remove pilling and excess fibers that stick up from Cashmere and Wool. Do not use the fabric comb on any sweaters containing Silk or Linen or have delicate pointelle stitch, as it can snag and break the fibers, leaving a hole.
HOW TO STORE
- Store folded, do not hang as garments may be pulled due to gravity. We recommend storing your garments in cotton storage bags as bugs can't eat through cotton, and the natural, breathable fabric helps the moisture escape—preventing it from being retained. We provide an organic cotton bag with every purchase.
- For long-term storage, store in aerated bins so that moisture can not be trapped. Moths are attracted to natural fibers like silk and wool. Remember to always clean your silks before putting them away for the season.
- For best results, use a cedar block or sachet to keep your closet smelling fresh while naturally repelling moths and other insects.
