As winter begins to wind down (maybe) and you think about putting your sweaters in a drawer, a trunk, on a shelf, away, we would like to add a few thoughts.
First, wash them. We like hand washing in sweater shampoo. Moths love dirty sweaters and it’s well known that they prefer dirty cashmere. Plus you’ll have fresh, clean sweaters many months from now when you need them again.
Second, let’s talk about lengthening the life of your sweater. As we all know, there are very few yarns that don’t pill, at least a little. The question is, “what do you do about that?” We recommend sweater shavers. Removing the fuzz and/or pills periodically will greatly extend the years and original personality of your garment.
How do you store your sweaters? Any thoughts you would like to share?
Smile, relax and knit,
