Garment care

My knitwear is washable - dry cleaning is not necessary.

Ideally hand wash your luxury knitwear

To maintain the softness, quality and drape of the item you should carefully hand wash it in warm water (approximately 30 deg C) using a gentle non-biological product. Don't use harsh detergents or those containing bleaches and/or optical whiteners, as these damage the fibres and reduce the intensity and quality of colours. Do not bleach. Remove any brooches, laces etc before washing. You can replace these when the garment is dry. 

 
Susan Holton Knitwear how to care for your knitwear
 

After washing, rinse well. Gently ease the item into shape while damp if needed. Dry flat, away from direct sunlight. Do not tumble dry.

Key points are:

  • Gentle hand wash
  • Dry flat away from direct sunlight
  • Ease/pat into shape if needed
  • Do not bleach
  • Do not tumble dry

Dark colours & all hand-dyed & denim garments should be washed separately. 

Denim yarns are designed to fade over time with washing and wearing. Please be careful with denim items as the dyes are less fixed than other dyes and when they are new, some of the colour may transfer onto light coloured fabrics in wear. If you wash the garment before wearing it for the first time, this will help to reduce this. 

Please don't hesitate to get in touch (by email or telephone) if you have any questions about garment care.
