KNITWEAR CARE GUIDE | TIGER OF SWEDEN
Our Knitwear is effortlessly luxurious, tactile and crafted in quality fabrics. To ensure you prolong the life span of your knitwear we have created a care guide.
In the wardrobe / after useKnitwear should be given space to rest between wears to keep the shape and remain fresh. After wearing, air your knitwear outside the wardrobe overnight. A light knitted sweater should be hung on a proper cedarwood hanger after use to ensure the sweater maintains its shape. In comparison, thick and heavy knits should be folded and stored on a shelf with cedarwood balls or lavender bags to deter moths and other vermin.
Washing your knits
Washing your knits too often will tear the garment and can take away the natural oils in the fibre making it thinner and misshapen.
We recommend washing your knitwear as little as possible. When washing we always recommend a gentle wash or handwashing if necessary. When hand washing use lukewarm water with an eco-friendly wool detergent to avoid tearing the garment. Do not leave the garment to soak, start washing straight away and gently squeeze the water out.
Most of our knitwear garments can be machine washed at a low temperature. If you would prefer to wash in the machine, use a wool or hand wash program. We recommend separating the knits from your regular laundry. Turn your knitwear inside out before washing and always make sure to follow the washing information on the care label.
