General care & washing

Regular care for your garment will give it longevity for you to enjoy. Keep a natural lavender spray to prevent moths during storage as well as keeping your garment smelling fresh.

Wool has self-cleaning properties, so your garment does not require regular washing. In the case of a spillage, wash your garment in water no warmer than 30 degrees celcius. Use a gentle wool soap, and hand wash the garment by gently agitating the water around the garment. Once rinsed, lay your garment on a towel and roll gently to remove excess water. 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. 



All woolly Lil' Knits garments are made from pure Peruvian Highland wool. This wool is beautifully soft due to its fine and short fibres, which collect on the surface of garments as a result of friction. This is also known as pilling. 

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