You've spent countless hours knitting an item, or you spent a lot of money on a piece of knitwear...now let's take care of it! Julie found herself constantly rigging together her own kits for sweater care out of miscellaneous items around the house. After many years of teaching she learned that this was a sticking point for her students, as well. So she put together this easy Sweater Care Kit, filled with everything you need to maintain and love your knitwear for years to come.
The included instructions guide you through 4 simple steps with the contents inside to wash and dry your item properly. By cleaning your piece after it gets tired or dirty you reduce pilling and the risk of moth infestation (moths are attracted to dirt and oil on knitwear) It will look better, too, because the fibers will be refreshed and plumped! Whether you're a knitter, crocheter, or someone with delicate store-bought items to take care of, these steps will increase the quality and life of your precious pieces. This process also works to block your recently cast-off knits, but if you have something that you'd like to pin we recommend adding our T-Pins and Knitter's Block to this kit.
