Garment Care

Here at Interknit we use machine washable wool for all of our garments. Our care instruction labels clearly state the blend of wool and the wash instructions.

We attach care labels to all our garments, and they will be placed either at the back neck label or on the inner left side seam.

Although our garments are machine washable you can also hand wash if preferred, or alternatively you can get your garment dry cleaned. We recommend you only use accredited Dry Cleaners should you choose to dry clean your garment.

Machine Wash Instructions

Turn garment inside out and be sure to close all buttons and zips.

Use approved wool detergent. Warm machine wash on a gentle cycle (wool cycle), with a normal spin to remove any excess water. Do not tumble dry and Do not bleach your garment.

Be sure to follow the After Washing Instructions below.

Hand Wash Instructions

You may choose to hand wash if you are not confident about using the washing machine on a wool or gentle cycle.

Turn garment inside out and be sure to close all buttons and zips.

Use approved wool detergent and place the garment into warm water. Squeeze the water through the garment.

Rinse in cold water several times until there isn’t any soapy water left in the garment.

Please remove all excess water by rolling in a towel. Do not ring as this may damage your garment.

Be sure to follow the After Washing Instructions below.

After Washing Instructions

Once washed, when you take your woollen garment out of your washing machine, gently pull the garment back into shape. This will not hurt the garment.

If the garment has stretched, usually during the spin dry cycle, be sure to pull the sides of the garment out and this will bring the length back to where it should be.

If your sleeves appear to have shrunk, gently pull the length of the sleeve.

Check that the ribs or cables of the garment are not stretched. If the ribs or cables are stretched, gently pat them back into shape.

To dry the garment, always lie the garment flat and away from direct sunlight as this can bleach out the colour. Never peg or stretch your garment.

Once the garment is dry you can use a steam iron on the wool setting, iron the garment carefully.

To ensure that your garment looks better for longer we recommend that you never hang your garment. This protects its shape and the natural elasticity of the woollen yarn.
