STORING YOUR KNITWEAR

The best way to store your knitwear and wool sweaters is to fold them. When storing sweaters it is best not to hang them as it will cause the shoulders of a sweater to stretch and the weight will stretch the body length. If you are storing your knitwear for the summer, we recommend putting them in breathable bags to avoid any mildew.

Top Tip: If you are storing your knitwear away for the summer, put a sachet of lavender in with them, this will keep any little bugs away!
