Video: How to care for wool knitwear
When was the last time you washed your knitwear?
I have to say it's one of the clothing maintenance things I'm worst at. Even though I know it's great to avoid pilling, and more importantly moths, I rarely do it.
I feel guilty every few months and wash a few pieces, but it's not enough.
Fortunately, the enthusiasm of Audie Charles in this film we made has put me back on the right track. I did three this weekend and it was just as calming as she said (both music and wine included).
Audie also has some great tips on using a nail file for pilling, and is firm that stopping moths is all about prevention, not cure. Amen to that.
This is the latest in a series of films we've done recently on practical subjects. Others have included:
- How to look after tailoring
- How polish shoes part 1 and part 2
- How to fold a handkerchief
- How to look after suede jackets
- How to look after good shoes
Thank you to Audie, the whole of Anderson & Sheppard, and the Campaign for Wool for their help with this edition.
