How to Wash Garments Knitted with MerinoMeri's Yarn

How to Wash Garments Knitted with MerinoMeri's Yarn

  1. Choose a Gentle Cycle: Choose a gentle or delicate washing cycle for most knitted items. The most delicate way of washing can ensure your hands :) This helps prevent excessive friction and deformation of the items. 

  2. Use Cold Water: Washing in cold water helps prevent shrinking or altering the shape of the knitted items. Hot water can cause certain types of fibres to contract.

  3. Use a Mild Detergent: Opt for a mild detergent suitable for wool or delicate fabrics. Avoid bleach or detergents with harsh chemicals.

  4. Avoid Agitation: Avoid vigorous rubbing, twisting, or agitating the knitted items during washing. Gently rinse with water.

  5. Minimise Spin: If your washing machine has a spin cycle, set it to the lowest level or avoid using it altogether to prevent excessive strain on the fibres.

  6. Dry Flat: Don't hang the knitted items on a line or hanger after washing, as this may cause deformation. Instead, lay them flat on a towel to drain excess water.

  7. Avoid Direct Sunlight: If air-drying outdoors, avoid direct sunlight, which can lead to colour fading.

Remember! Different types of yarn may have different care recommendations, so MerinoMeri advises checking all types of washing on samples. Proper care ensures that your knitted creations maintain their quality and beauty over time.
