General Care & Washing


The ongoing general care for your garment will give it longevity for you to enjoy!

Keeping a natural lavender spray will prevent moths during storage, but also keep your garment smelling lovely.

Wool has self-cleaning properties so your garment wont need to be washed much at all.


In the case that there's a spillage or you feel the need to wash your garment, do so in water no warmer than 30 degrees Celsius.

Use a gentle soap (or wool soap if you have it), and handwash the garment by gently agitating the water around the garment.

Once rinsed, lay your garment on a towel and roll to dry.

Do not ring or squeeze your garment.

After rolling, lay the garment flat on the towel to dry, flipping as necessary.


Washing will accelerate pilling so should be done minimally.


The Pilling

All woolly Lil' Knits garments are made from pure Peruvian Highland wool.

This wool is beautifully soft, due to its fine and short fibers, which collect on the surface of garments as a result of friction.

This is also known as pilling.


To care for your garment, regularly shave it with a de-piller to maintain its appearance. These can be purchased here.
