care of knitwear


• Pilling (pellets) will inevitably appear on knitwear. It happens because of mechanical friction of fleecy knitted fabric while being worn.

• The easiest way to prevent fabric pilling is to bear in mind that belts, hard elements of outerwear and other things cause harmful friction on fabric.

• If the pills did appear they can be removed with a special fabric shaver or a brush. Fabric shavers and brushes can be purchased at our stores.


• Never cut the pulls off. Pull the thread to the wrong side with a needle and, if necessary, fix it with a few small stitches.

• More complex defects (runs, small holes, etc.) can be fixed by our specialists. We provide our customers with pay knitwear repair service.


• To prevent knitwear from stretching and dusting keep it neatly folded in closed wardrobes, chests or special containers.

• Delicate (silk, cashmere) and beaded knitwear keep folded and wrapped in paper.

• Moth repellent is a necessary element to keep woolen garments safe.

• Wash your knitted garments before storage.


• Turn the item inside out before washing.

• Use special detergent.

• It is advisable to hand wash all knitted items, try not to rub but squeeze the cloth.

• Wash knitted items separately (to avoid sticking of fibers to other clothing).

• To avoid felting and stretching out of the fabric the water for soaking and washing should be the same temperature (not more than 30 °C). Soak knitwear for not longer than 30 minutes.

• Do not soak knitwear which contains many-colored yarn.

• To wash knitwear in a machine choose short delicate cycle.

• Do not wring but gently press the garments with your hands. Remove the rest of moisture by wrapping the clothing into bath towel.

• Do not hang the garment but spread it on a flat surface away from direct heat, give it necessary shape and let it dry.

• Iron knitted items inside out at a low temperature mode, do not stretch garments while ironing.
