Winter is coming, and we know it’s that time of the year again when you must revamp your wardrobes with new winter staples because that cozy sweater in the back of your closet is probably the last thing on your mind (we’re sweating just thinking about it!). It is safe to say that knitwear is a winter essential which holds a special place in everyone’s wardrobe. The best part in investing in knitwear is its endurance. From its practical function as the season’s warmest garments to its effortless ability in creating a great look, knitwear is a vital style asset!

Apart from being a style asset, knits are very delicate as a fabric. To get the maximum wear out of them and keep them in top condition they need proper care. So here is our guide on how you can make your knits survive the entire season:

scented candles
First things first, swear by your label instructions on how to clean, dry and iron your garment.
Don’t pre-soak your knitted garments and wash them separately!
red wine
NEVER put your knitted garments in the dryer, as it will stretch and shrink them. Always let the garments, air dry.
