- Or specialist dry cleaning
Hand washing your jumper
Washing by hand is highly recommended for your Merino and Silk blend jumper. Turn your garments inside-out, hand wash using cool water. Avoid soaking for too long, a few minutes to help loosen the dirt before gently squeezing and rinsing, first with cool water.
Drying your jumper
Pre-dry your jumper by gently rolling it in a towel – never wring. Reshape the garment while damp, especially the V and dry flat not on direct heat.
Ironing your jumper
Occasionally it may be good to iron your jumper to keep the fibres in good condition. Bizarrely low heat ironing makes the jumper super soft by helping the fibres smooth down and go back to the soft state they were when you first bought the jumper! Iron lightly when the jumper is still damp, with a finishing cloth in between and hold the iron on a low setting possible & ideally without steam so you do not ruin the fibres. If dry ironing, use a slightly damp cloth in between to avoid glazing. Obviously, avoid the rib and cuffs.
