Where possible spot clean, otherwise cool hand wash with an approved wool detergent & dry flat. Ideally air out regularly, taking advantage of the wools ‘self cleaning’ properties. Make sure to store your knitwear folded to keep its shape.
From time to time you may find your knitwear may pill a little. This is common shedding that occurs in finer wools including cashmere & merino that possess a softer handle. Although V&W knitwear pilling levels are very low, you can easily remove pilling one at a time gently by hand or simply use a de-pilling comb.
Cupro washes and wears beautifully, however tumble drying should be avoided as it can potentially break down the yarn and produce a faded colour.
The best way to maintain it's silky appearance and integregitry is by cold hand washing seperatly and drying flat in the shade.
Silk is maintaned best when dry cleaned with care. Ironing on a high heat can cause the fabric to burn and weaken the delicate nature of the yarn. To remove wrinkles and creases, turn your silk inside out and place a cloth between a cool iron and the silk garment.
We suggest avoiding spot cleaning your silk pieces as this can stain and leave a water mark.
Always wash in cold water, warm to hot water can cause the garment to shrink.
Shake out when wet will help with ironing and returning your garment to it’s original shape. Line dry or lay flat.
Cotton is easiest to iron when it is slightly damp.
