Care Guide


All of our knitwear is made using the highest quality materials and made by skilled craftspeople in Britain. These materials are delicate and must be treated with love and care; they will reward you by lasting a lifetime.

 

Hand washing

We would recommend hand washing all of your Mussi knitwear in cool - lukewarm water using wool soap.

Gently move the garment around in the bubbles, then carefully squeeze out soapy water, never wring knitwear as this could stretch it.

Rinse thoroughly in clean water, and then squeeze out again.

Carefully roll up the garment in a large towel to squeeze out more water.

Dry flat.

Using a low iron setting, gently iron any curled edges using a damp cloth to protect the knit.

 

Debobbling

Bobbles are a normal occurrence over time for most knitted items even when using the best quality yarns and may occur particularly in places of friction.

To remove bobbles or pills gently brush with a pilling comb or pick off with fingers, being carful not to pull too hard and stretch the stitches.

The best time to do by hand is when the garment is still slightly damp from washing.

Use the comb when the garment is dry.

 

Natural Dyes

For the first few washes the colour may run, this is due to excess dye being held in the fibres of the fabric or yarn.

Wash naturally dyed silks and wools individually in cool-lukewarm water using liquid wool soap. Do expect to see some of the dye run into the water.

Rinse thoroughly in clean water, and then squeeze out again.

Carefully roll up the garment in a large towel to squeeze out more water.
