Care Instructions

To keep your woollens looking good hand-washing is advised. Instructions accompany each garment, but in case these have gone "by the wayside" here they are again:

  • use luke warm water with a liquid detergent (such as Stergene)
  • Allow the garment to soak as the water cools
  • rinse in cool water and towel or spin dry
  • shake out and re-shape allowing the garment to dry flat
  • do not rub and be sure that water is lukewarm .
  • Dry away from heat.

Knitting Methods


We take great care in our hand-knitted woollens, in particular


  • we cast on using a single needle and thumb, this gives an edge that is neat, stretchy and resilient. Select the image opposite to see instructions on how to cast on using the thumb method.


  • Laced-sewn seams "give" evenly as the wearer moves. Select the image opposite to see how this is achieved.


  • Child's Ganseys are knitted using the circular method and therefore have no stitched seams whatsoever.


  • Quality Yarns that have body, allow stretch and keep their shape.


  • Shoulders, front & back are cast off together - so again no sewn seams.
