Revitalize Your Knitwear: A Guide to Spring Cleaning

Revitalize Your Knitwear: A Guide to Spring Cleaning

As the chill of winter gives way to the warmth of spring, it’s time to breathe new life into your beloved knitwear collection. Whether you’re an avid knitter or simply cherish your cozy sweaters and scarves, spring cleaning your knitwear is essential for maintaining their beauty and longevity. In this guide, we’ll explore how you can rejuvenate your knitwear using wool wash (we carry both Eucalan and Soak), gleeners (fabric shavers), and blocking mats.

**1. The Power of Wool Wash:**

Wool wash is a gentle yet effective way to clean your cherished knitwear pieces. Made with biodegradable ingredients, Soak and Eucalan are free of harsh chemicals, ensuring that your delicate garments are treated with care. Simply fill a basin with lukewarm water, add a small amount of wool wash, and let your knitwear soak for 15 minutes. Gently squeeze out the excess water, place it between a towel and press to get as much water out as possible and lay your garments flat to dry. Not only will your knitwear be clean and fresh, but we offer a variety of delightful scents, adding an extra touch of luxury to the cleaning process.

**2. Defeat Pilling with a Gentle Touch:**

Pilling, those pesky little fuzz balls that can accumulate on knitwear over time, can detract from the beauty and softness of your favorite pieces. Thankfully, there are gentle yet effective ways to combat pilling and restore your knitwear to its former glory. Invest in a Gleener, a sweater shaver or de-pilling comb designed specifically for use on delicate fabrics like wool. Gently glide the shaver or comb over the surface of your knitwear, targeting areas prone to pilling. Be careful not to apply too much pressure, as you want to remove the pills without causing any damage to the fabric. With a bit of patience and a gentle touch, you can say goodbye to pilling and hello to a renewed sense of softness and smoothness in your knitwear collection.

**3. Mindful Blocking Mats for Perfect Fit:**

Blocking mats are an essential tool for knitters looking to achieve a perfect fit and finish for their projects. Made of sturdy foam, blocking mats provide a flat surface for blocking your knitwear pieces to their desired shape and size. Take the time to carefully arrange your knitwear on the blocking mats, paying attention to every stitch and detail. As you pin your garments into place, visualize them taking on their final form, ready to be worn and cherished once again.


Spring cleaning your knitwear is not just a chore—it’s an opportunity to show your cherished garments the love and care they deserve. With wool wash, Gleaners, and mindful blocking mats, you can breathe new life into your knitwear collection, ensuring that each piece remains beautiful and vibrant for seasons to come. So, roll up your sleeves, gather your supplies, and embark on a journey of renewal and rejuvenation for your beloved knitwear. And don't forget those mitts, hats and scarves!
