How To Care For Your JAG Knits

17 Jun 2024

Knitwear is a staple in any winter wardrobe. Caring for your JAG knits is key to maintaining their quality and longevity. So, we’ve put together a small guide to help you keep your JAG knitwear in the best shape possible.

1. Fold, Don't Hang

To keep your knitwear in the best shape, always fold rather than hang. Hanging can cause the fabric to stretch and lose its shape. Store your knits in a cool, dry place, and avoid overcrowding to prevent wrinkles and creases.

2. Wash in a Gentle Cycle or Hand Wash

Knitwear requires delicate care when it comes to washing. Opt for a gentle cycle on your washing machine or, even better, hand wash your knits. Spot cleaning when possible is also a great way to maintain the fabric's integrity. Always wash your knitwear with cold water to prevent shrinkage and fabric damage. Avoid harsh detergents. Choose mild detergents specifically designed for delicate fabrics. Harsh chemicals can weaken the fibres and cause colours to fade. If you prefer hand washing, gently swish the garment in water without wringing or twisting it.

3. Drying: Roll and Press

Drying your knitwear properly is crucial to avoid stretching and misshaping. Never wring out your knitwear. Instead, gently press out excess water. Lay the knitwear flat on a clean, dry towel. Roll the towel up with the garment inside and press lightly to remove excess water. Lay the knitwear on a flat surface to dry. Reshape it while damp to its original dimensions to maintain its form. Keep knitwear away from direct sunlight, this can cause the fabric to become brittle and fade.

4. General Care: Keep Your Knits Looking New

Regular maintenance can keep your knitwear looking fresh and new. Gentle removal of pilling and careful handling are key to preserving the quality of your garments. Pilling is common with knitwear and can be gently removed by hand or with a knit comb. Avoid using razors or harsh tools that might damage the fabric. Airing out your knits can keep them fresh between washes. This simple step helps in maintaining the garment's appearance and extending its life.

By following these care tips, you can ensure your JAG knits remain in perfect condition for years to come.
