Description

Don't fear the bobbles! Pilling (or bobbling) is entirely expected when it comes to superb, all-natural knitwear. In actual fact, pilling authenticates your knits' natural credentials! And remember the softer the yarn, the more likely it is to pill.

You can keep those pesky pills in check (and keep your knits looking their best) with this handy & effective, pilling comb.

Light & easy to use, yet strong & durable, you rely upon this clever comb to fight the fuzz!

Just make sure you take it easy when using your comb, and don't overuse it -damaged knits are never good!

Garments will look as good as new

Simply use the comb over the problem area of the garment.

Allow comb to extract all the fluff and fuzz with ease.

Use light, quick brush strokes with the comb over the garment.

Garments must be pulled tight for a quick result.

Don't trust your detergent!

We want your WoolOvers to last just as much as you do (we have our reputation to uphold!) so here is our guide to prolonging the life of your knitwear. Follow these steps and your garments should last for years to come!

Quick summary:

All of our fabrics are a blend of natural protein fibres and knitted from machine-washable yarn. Wash them on a wool program, using a non-bio detergent at a maximum spin speed of 600 rpm.

Why non-bio?

Many biological detergents contain wool-eating enzymes. Never use biological detergents or stain removers on Wool, Silk or Cashmere fibres because the enzymes will literally digest the fabric and you may end up with unsightly holes!

Are all non-bios fine to use?

Afraid not. Those that contain bleach will lead to progressive fading and may weaken the fabric, again leading to holes.

What products do you recommend?

Wool and natural fibre detergents are available at all supermarkets. Many sell Woolmark-approved own brand products. Other good brands include Dreft, Persil Silk and Wool, Woolite, Stergene and Ecover Wool Wash.

So I definitely don't need to hand wash?

Many other brands are 'hand wash only', but all of our knitwear is fully machine washable - we hope this makes your life easier!

REMEMBER: to increase the life of your WoolOvers, use a slow spin (600 rpm or less) and a low temperature (30° max.) to avoid stretching, shrinking and matting of the fibres.

What about drying?

Our cotton blends will be fine in your tumble dryer, but avoid direct heat on the woollens. These should be reshaped and allowed to dry naturally.

TIP: Keep them supported to maintain their shape, a broad banister can be ideal, or simply lay flat, ensuring you rotate it.

Never thought of using one of these before, but it is brilliant at ridding woollies of the dreaded pills and loose fibres.
