Linen knitwear is delicate in nature and care must be taken when washing your garment. This will maintain quality and ensure your garment’s longevity. We recommend washing in strictly cold water on a delicate cycle with a dash of mild, natural detergent. To prevent damage, we recommend using a delicate bag and avoiding washing alongside garments with zips and buttons.
To dry, lay the garment flat on a towel (avoid hangers) and leave it in a shaded area. Once dry, store your garment in a cool, dry place and fold it. We recommend folding to maintain shape best; over time, hanging such garments may cause the garment to lose its original shape.
When washed, knitted linen has the tendency to tighten and may appear to have shrunk however this can be easily reminded with a warm steam iron to relax the fibres using hands to gently ease the garment back to its original shape.
Being natural fibres, knitwear made with these yarns may pill with wear. This is not a sign of poor quality—quite the opposite; the more natural and soft the fibre, the more likely it is to pill. To keep your knit looking brand new, we recommend a de-pilling tool such as a cashmere comb or a high-quality electric pilling tool. Be mindful when using such tools, taking care to run only along the top surface without applying pressure or pushing too hard on the garment.
Do not tumble dry. Exposing garments to lengthy periods of heat at high temperatures damages fibres and shrinks garments. Always refer to your garment’s label for precise care instructions.
