- Turn Sweater inside out.
- Place in a delicates bag if you have one.
- Set washing machine to a cold, gentle cycle. Make sure the washer isn’t too full – the more full the machine, the more friction will occur and cause surface pilling.
- Do not put sweaters in the dryer. Turn the sweater back to right side out, and lay flat to dry so that it doesn’t stretch out.
Pro-Tip: Instead of machine washing your sweaters, hand wash them! Fill up a clean sink, basin or tub with some cool water, adding a gentle soap like Soak or Woolite. Turn the sweater inside out, and add the sweater to the sink and fully submerge. Gently swirl the sweater around in the water, taking care to not rub or cause friction–this can cause pilling or felting if there is too much agitation! Drain soapy water, and replace with cool water until the sweater is rid of the soap. Gently press the sweater to get the excess water out–do not wring or twist the sweater, as this can misshapen the sweater. Lay flat to dry.
Do not hang your sweaters. Hangers can create bubbles at the shoulders and stretch the garment out lengthwise. Always fold and store your sweaters. If you don’t have space to fold your sweaters and must use hangers, neatly fold your sweater and drape it over the bar portion of the hanger so it is hanging evenly on the hanger. If you find that you have shoulder bumps on your sweaters, you can take a spray bottle with water and spray the shoulder while wearing it and gently pat your hand along the shoulder to smooth it back out, or use a steamer to smooth out the bumps.
Fixing a snag: If you get a snag, take a sewing needle and push the snag to the inside of the garment. If you have trouble pushing the snag through, a crochet hook will do the trick. On the inside of the sweater, make a knot with the snagged yarn to secure. Do not cut the snag, or you can get a hole.
Removing Pills: A battery operated pill remover, or portable fabric comb is the easiest way to remove pills and have your sweaters looking new again. Lay the garment on a flat surface and gently go over the area with pilling, making sure to not press too hard as that can damage the material.
It's better to wash less. The more you wear your jeans the more they become unique to you. To maintain the wash and fit, we recommend washing after 5-10 wears. Denim is personal though, so we also suggest what works best for you and your denim goals.
Be gentle on your denim. Regardless of how you wash your denim, always turn the garment inside out before washing and in cold water. This exposes the part of your jeans that need cleaning the most, and keeps the wash from fading and the jean from shrinking. Heat will break down the stretch/spandex fibers and decreases the longevity. We prefer hand washing denim with mild detergent, although machine washing on a gentle cycle with similar colors also works great (and is more convenient).
Lay flat, line dry, or tumble? We recommend laying your jeans flat to dry or line drying inside out, again, to prevent fading and maintain the denim's shape. If you're short on time or want to soften your jeans up a bit after air drying, you can use a machine dry on low heat.
Extra tips to maintain: If you have any stains before your next wash, spot clean with a damp towel or rag and blot until the stain is removed. Rubbing will lift the color on blue jeans and cause fading in that area. For any holes or tears, you can easily get jeans patched or sewn, or look for a tailor that specializes in denim. For shortening or cutting a hem raw, make sure to wash it first, since they may shrink in length the first time.
