WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND TO STORE YOUR KNITS FLAT OR FOLDED,

RATHER THAN ON ANY TYPE OF CLOTHES HANGER. 

OVER TIME, KNITWEAR KEPT ON A HANGER WILL ‘GROW’

AND CAN PERMANENTLY HAVE DISTORTION TO ITS SHAPE.

PLEASE REFER TO DRY CLEANING TO PROTECT COLOUR BRIGHTNESS

AND OVERALL LONGEVITY FOR YOUR SILK KNITWEAR.

ALTHOUGH, HAND-WASHING IS AN EASY AND SAFE ALTERNATIVE

— PLEASE FOLLOW OUR STEPS BELOW.

SILK IS A STRONG FIBER THAT IS MOST VULNERABLE WHEN WET.

IF YOU ARE WEARING YOUR KNITS OFTEN, DRY CLEANING ISN’T ALWAYS AN OPTION.

PLEASE FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE STEPS TO TEND TO YOUR KNITS AT HOME:

  • FILL A CLEAN SINK WITH COOL - COLD WATER

  • ADD A FEW DROPS OF GENTLE PH-NEUTRAL, DYE FREE DETERGENT

  • MIX DETERGENT AND WATER WITH A STIRRING MOTION

  • LAY KNIT ON TOP OF WATER, GENTLY ‘KNEADING’ IT, SUBMERGING IT

  • LET IT FLOAT BACK TO THE SURFACE

  • REPEAT UNTIL KNIT FEELS CLEAN

  • LAY FLAT ON A DRY TOWEL

  • ROLL UP TOWEL AND KNIT, TOGETHER, TO ABSORB EXCESS WATER

  • REPEAT A FEW TIMES

  • NEVER WRING OUT YOUR KNIT - DISTORTION COULD OCCUR

  • RESHAPE KNIT AND LAY FLAT ON A DRY TOWEL UNTIL COMPLETELY DRY

ALL KNITWEAR IS MADE UP OF LOOPS, ALLOWING LIGHT AND AIR TO PASS THROUGH.

YET, THE NATURE OF ALL KNITWEAR IS MORE VULNERABLE TO SNAGGING.

IF YOUR KNIT SHOULD ‘PULL,’ IT CAN EASILY BE FIXED:

  • PLACE ONE HAND INSIDE THE KNIT, PALM SIDE UP, UNDER THE ‘PULL’

  • THE OTHER, USING A SEWING NEEDLE TO PUSH THE ‘PULL’ INWARD

  • CONTINUE UNTIL ‘PULL’ IS NO LONGER VISIBLE ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE KNIT

  • PULL THE YARN FROM THE INSIDE OF THE KNIT

  • NOW THE YARN WILL SHOW ON THE INSIDE, INSTEAD OF THE OUTSIDE

  • NEVER CUT ‘PULLS’ WITH SCISSORS

  • BY CUTTING A THREAD, YOU MAY CAUSE A HOLE

  • PUSHING ‘PULLS’ THROUGH IS THE SAFEST WAY TO FIX YOUR KNIT

  • PLEASE KEEP IN MIND YOU MAY NEED A BIT OF PATIENCE TO DO SO
