Instructions for care of linen knitsPirita linen knits are made of 100 % linen thread, which is made of the finest part of linen, the heckled flax. Linen loves to be worn, and it’s nice and cool in warm weather, and warm in cold weather. Knitted linen is basically wrinkle-free. All knits have been shrink-washed beforehand.
Linen is the ideal material as it rejects dirt and needs no strong detergents when washed.
Wash the knit separately by hand or in your washing machine in 40 °C using the wool or gentle wash program. Do not use fabric softener, and choose gentle sling. Shape the knit back to its form and let it dry on a level surface. Finally, steam iron inside out and finish with gentle ironing on the right side.
We recommend you wash thinner knitted scarves by hand.
After washing, squeeze out excess water, shape the knit and allow it to dry on a level surface. Stretch the dry knit back to its form before steam ironing. Wash colors separately.
