Tips for washing and caring for knitwear

How do I take care of my knitwear?

Welcome to leselles, where we not only love quality knitwear, but also on maintaining your style and comfort. Let's take a look at how best to care for your knitwear so that you always look perfect, no matter what your daily activities!


Invest in Quality and Sustainability

At leselles, we value quality and sustainability. Therefore, we take extra steps to ensure that we pre-wash all of our mohair after production. This way, we want to prevent you from experiencing any shrinkage at home. We believe in pieces that last and that you can rely on.

Washing friendliness

Good news - most wool can go in the washing machine, as long as you choose a fine program. Keep the temperature low (around 20-30 degrees) and the spin setting gentle (600 RPM maximum). Don't stuff your knitwear too full in the machine - give it some room to absorb the soap.


No delicate washing program? No problem! Give your knitwear some extra love with a hand wash. Fill the sink or tub with lukewarm water and a little baby shampoo or gentle detergent. Then rinse well with lukewarm water. Wring very gently to maintain the shape of your knitwear.

Gentle detergent for Delicate laundry

When washing, choose a mild detergent specifically designed for wool. Your fibers will thank you! Don't use too much detergent - a little is enough. Also, NEVER use fabric softener!

Avoiding Dryer Drama

After washing, lay your knitwear flat on a towel to dry. Don't hang it up - we don't want those fibers to get stretched. Got wrinkles? Hold your iron a few inches above your knitwear to smooth it out, or better yet, use a steamer.

Is washing really necessary

Less washing means more enjoyment from your knitwear! Hang it outside if it's not dirty but could use just a little freshening up. Some machines even have a steam program that works wonders to get rid of nasty odors.

Give Your Knitwear Space

Once your knitwear is dry and wrinkle-free, fold it neatly and place it horizontally in your closet. Try not to pile your clothing too much on top of each other-give it some breathing room so it stays fresh and looks great.

And that's it - your guide to taking care of your knitwear. Still have questions? Don't hesitate to contact us. We're always here for you!
