how to store YOUR KNITS

Knits are very fragile and can stretch and lose their shape easily. So it is very important that we look after them. Storing your delicately made cashmere, wool or cotton knitwear is crucial to keeping them looking and feeling great year after year.

Wash knits in a wool wash or another specially formulated cleanser such as baby shampoo. Shhhh do not tell I wash mine on a gentle cycle in a lingerie bag in my front loader. Washing machines are so much gentler than they used to be. 

Knitwear should be folded neatly on a shelf or in a drawer. Store the knits in an area where they are not stretched in any ways. 

Keep them fresh and the bugs at bay by adding a little lavender (near where you store them) to preserve the quality of you knits.

How do you store your knits? Please share your tips below.
