How to Look after your Yarn!
Here are some top tips on keeping your yarn looking & feeling its best for years to come!
- I recommend that you wash all of your yarns by hand in cool soapy water. For best results use a detergent that is designed to wash delicate materials; I recommend using 'Stergene Gentle Care' which is specifically formulated to wash wool & silk and has been approved by The Wool Mark Company.
- Special care has been taken to remove any excess dye from the fibres however, I recommend that you wash your wonderful creations separately to avoid any colour run.
- Once you have washed your creations, lay flat, reshape if necessary, and leave to dry. When you are not wearing your creations, keep in a dry place.
- Be sure to keep pesky moths away from your yarn. Moths love to eat yarn so your stash is a vulnerable place. Protect is using cedar balls or lavender bags, checking it regularly & if possible, keeping it in a light, airy place or an air tight container.
