Knitwear


As wool is a sensitive natural fiber and has an antibacterial effect, we recommend airing knitted items more frequently instead of washing them.

Pilling

Utensils for removal:

lint roller
clothes brush
lint shaver
razor blades
washing bag


Tips for preventing pilling:

Clean the knitted items with a lint roller before washing.

Wash garments inside out.

Wash at a low temperature and, if possible, use a delicate cycle.

Use mild detergent to avoid too much foam and friction.

Never put knitted sweaters in the dryer, instead wrap them in a towel to remove excess water.

Special washing bags made of high-tech fabric help to reduce pilling.

A lint shaver should be used with caution. Although it effectively removes lint and fabric balls, it also shortens the fibers and thus damages the fabric of the clothing.

A clothes brush or lint roller is gentle on the fabric and can be used before washing.

Pulled threads

With coarse-meshed knitted sweaters, pulled threads can be pulled back again with a crochet hook.

The finer the knit, the thinner the crochet hook should be.

Insert the hook from the inside of the knitted sweater through the stitches to the outside and hook the head of the crochet hook into the pulled thread. Then pull the pulled yarn back in from the outer side to the inner side.

Rescue shrunken knitted sweaters

Put lukewarm water with 1 teaspoon of conditioner and 1 teaspoon of baby shampoo in a container and leave the knitted item to soak for 30 minutes.

Lay the knitted sweater out on a spread out towel, roll it up and gently press on it to remove the liquid, do not rinse.

Then place the sweater on a new towel and carefully pull it back into shape. Then dry it lying down. If necessary, secure the ends with heavy objects.

The process can be repeated as required.
