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 Collection, filled with everything you need to maintain and love your knitwear for years to come.
Here are 4 simple steps to washing and drying 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.
