Inleiding

Sweaters must be hand-washed to prevent warping. Fortunately, hand-washing is easy. Follow these easy steps to a clean sweater. If you have a stain, check out our spot-washing guide.

We recommend a detergent with as few chemicals as possible, such as Seventh Generation, which is linked in the tools section of this guide.
