With fall quickly approaching, it’s almost time to bring out your favorite sweaters. Many people ask us how to properly care for sweaters so to help clear everything up, we’ve created a go-to guide of everything you need to know about caring for sweaters!
First of all, always fold your sweaters and never hang them. Hanging sweaters will not only stretch them out, but also the form of the sweater will change and start to look strange. If your sweater needs repairs like a button sewed on again or there is a hole, you need to do so immediately. If not, the holes will just stretch out and become larger making it harder to repair.
When it’s time to clean your favorite sweater, you must be very careful and read the cleaning instructions on the tag. Never wash a sweater in the washing machine unless it instructs you to do so. Wool sweaters should absolutely never be machine washed! To hand wash a sweater, simply fill a bucket up with soapy lukewarm water and let it soak. Then, when it is time to dry it, let it air dry. Wringing a sweater can also misshape it.
