Handwashing

Hand washing is advised for sweaters, cardigans or accessories. We recommend the following method:

  • Gently hand-washed in cool water (up to 85°f) with a mild soap or shampoo. Never use chlorine bleach, and do not use the hand wash cycle in a washing machine.
  • Gently press to remove excess water. Do not wring to avoid wrinkles and distortion
  • Lay horizontally for drying and place it in the shade so it can dry naturally.
  • Smooth by hand while wet to remove wrinkles and straighten the seams and facings.
  • You can dry clean these garments for better results.
