CARE

If you love something you want to hold on to it forever. Your new Månestråle knitwear - whether it is cashmere, mohair, merino wool or lambswool - is sustainable and can easily last for many years if you take good care of it. 

AIRING

  • Cashmere and wool have natural antibacterial properties:
  • Cashmere can be worn a few times before needing to wash it.  
  • Air out - The fresh air and moist works wonders for the cashmere fibers and as a bonus, it also brings down the environmental impact.

HAND WASH

Steps for Månestråle cashmere, merino, mohair wool and lambswool

  • Fill your basin with cold water and add a mild wool detergent.
  • Submerge your sweater and let it soak in the basin for 10 minutes.
  • Rinse with cold water until the water is no longer soapy
  • Gently remove the water by pressing your sweater.  Avoid wringing out your sweater, this can stretch out the delicate fibers.
  • Lay the sweater flat on a clean towel or drying rack and re-create its natural shape. Let it air dry. Do not hang your sweater to dry.

RESHAPE

Steam instead of iron - Steaming fluffs the yarns, makes the garment regain its original shape and is a natural refresher.

RENEW

  • Natural pilling occurs due to excess fibers and friction which can easily be removed.
  • A fabric comb or shaver can safely remove pilling.
  • The Pilo Shaver from Steamery can be purchased on our website:
    • Gently sweep the Pilo Shaver over the pilling.
    • Gradually increase the pressure.
    • Do not press down into the garment.

STORE AND PROTECT

  • Cedar is a natural repellent for moths and insects. Place a cedar ball in your drawer or storage box along with your sweater
  • Fold, don’t hang. Sweaters are best folded as hanging over time will stretch out the garment.
