we kindly recommend to store your knits flat or folded, rather than on a clothes hanger.
over time, knitwear that is hung will 'grow' and could possibly have distortion to its shape.
silk is delicate— please refer to dry cleaning to protect color brightness and overall longevity.
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 knit often, dry cleaning isn't always a option.
please follow these simple steps to tend to your knit 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 and letting it float back to the surface
repeat a few times
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 and lay flat on a dry towel until completely dry
all knitwear is made up of loops, allowing light and air to pass through, which allows overall comfort against our skin.
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, and the other using a pin or sewing needle to push the 'pull' inward.
once it isn't visible on the outside of the knit any longer, pull the yarn from the inside of the knit so that it now shows on the inside, instead of the outside.
never cut 'pulls' with scissors. think of your knit as one long silk thread, because it is, and by cutting a thread, you may cause a hole. pushing 'pulls' through is the safest and most efficient way to fix your knit.
please keep in mind you may need a bit of patience to do so.
