Garment Care

If properly cared for, your Amy Hall piece should last you a lifetime. By following our advice below, your handmade knitwear should live a long and happy life. Most of our pieces can be washed by hand (unless otherwise stated on the care label). Here's now to achieve the best results.

You will need:

  1. Place your knit in a basin filled with warm (not hot, this is important) water and a cap full of detergent
  2. Gently swirl the item and then leave to soak for ten minutes
  3. Swirl the garment gently again and then rinse in cool (not cold) water
  4. Squeeze as much water as you can from the knitwear, being careful not to twist and stretch it
  5. Now wrap your knit in a towel to soak up excess water, then unwrap it and lie it flat on a clean fresh towel to air dry. This prevents your knitwear from going out of shape

Please note that for our very large pieces, you may find hand washing at home results in water cascading all over your bathroom/kitchen floor.... In these situations it is often easier to take those pieces on a trip to your local (trusted) dry cleaner.

Your Amy Hall garment is now ready for its next wear!

London dwellers: It is a well-known fact that this city has a dire moth problem, especially for those of us living in converted Victorian townhouses. There is no hard and fast solution to this, but we recommend a selection of moth-repellent products (available in John Lewis and hardware stores) be placed in drawers and hung on wardrobe rails. When things are being packed away for long periods you may like to seal them in vacuum bags for peace of mind. Be warned: Moths will eat anything made from natural fibres, they are not picky!

Finally, even the best quality natural fibres will 'pill' when well-worn. However, this can easily be remedied by careful use of a wool comb (readily available in haberdashery stores/departments)
