Caring for Merino
The beauty of Merino wool lies in its low-maintenance character. By understanding and catering to Merino’s unique characteristics, you ensure that your garment remains in its prime for longer. This not only helps in maintaining the quality and appearance of the garment but also contributes to sustainability by reducing the need for frequent replacements.
A few tips on how to maintain your knits:
Every now and then, your Merino garment might appreciate a breather. Whether you hang it outside for an hour or lay it flat on your bed, a short rest can refresh its appearance and feel.
During the warmer months, moths might take an interest in your precious Merino. Storing your garment in its cotton bag is a preventive measure. But if those pesky pests decide to get too comfortable, a day or two in the freezer will send them packing. It’s an eco-friendly way of giving moths a cold shoulder.
Washing Made Easy:
Thanks to a specialised yarn treatment, your Merino garments can be gently machine washed without any risk of shrinking. This innovative approach ensures longevity and ease of care, further enhancing Merino’s reputation as a durable and convenient material.
Pills are the little bobbles that happen to fabric if you spend your days rubbing up against things. They should only appear once in the same spot. To get rid, run an electric fabric shaver or depilling comb over the area. Gently does it. Imagine giving a new-born their first parting. You will end up with satisfying fluffballs on the comb. And a bobble-free sweater.
