Size & Care
How to take size measurements?
To be sure you would get the best fitted knitwear clothing according to your body, taking measurements the right way is important. Remember to measure yourself while wearing only lightweight clothing or just underwear and stand in a relaxed, natural posture. It’s essential to use a flexible measuring tape for accurate results. If possible, ask someone to assist you for more precise measurements.
1. Bust Measurement:
To measure your bust, place the measuring tape around the fullest part of your chest, making sure it is straight and parallel to the ground. Keep the tape comfortably snug, but not too tight.
2. Waist Measurement:
For waist measurement, locate your natural waistline, which is typically the narrowest part of your torso. Wrap the measuring tape around your waist, making sure it is level and not twisted. Again, keep the tape snug but comfortable.
3. Hip Measurement:
To measure your hips, stand with your feet together and place the measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips and buttocks. Ensure the tape is parallel to the ground and not too loose or too tight.
4. Arm Length Measurement:
To measure your arm length, start the measuring tape at the top of your shoulder bone. Extend the tape down along the outside of your arm to your wrist bone. Keep your arm naturally bent, but rather straight while measuring to achieve an accurate length. Keep in mind that knitwear’s stretchiness and individual body type may influence the final appearance of the sleeve.
Standard arm lengths usually are: S – 56 cm, M – 57 cm, L – 57 cm, XL – 58 cm
But, as we know, we are all unique, so please choose your correct arm size from the options table on the product page. Choose “other” if you do not see your arm length in the options. You can also use this option to specify a more precise measurement.
5. Pants measurement:
The pants come in 3 lengths. The overall length is measured from the waist to the down hem. The inseam is measured from the crotch to the down hem.
Short – suitable for 160-167 cm tall women
Regular – suitable for 168-175 cm tall women
Long – suitable for 176-183 cm tall women
Other – if you cannot find your height, please specify it in the comments section on the cart page.
How to take care of knitwear?
Storing in the Closet:
1. Fold your natural fiber knits neatly and avoid hanging them, as hanging may cause stretching or distortion over time.
2. Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, as exposure to sunlight can cause fading and weaken the fibers.
3. Avoid placing heavy items on top of your knits to prevent flattening and creasing.
1. Give your knits a break between wears to allow them to air out naturally. This helps to reduce odors and freshen them up.
2. Hang your knits in a well-ventilated area or outside on a gentle breeze, avoiding direct sunlight.
1. Hand wash your natural fiber knits in hand-warm water using a gentle detergent specifically made for wool or delicate fabrics.
2. Gently stir the water to cleanse the knits, avoiding any rubbing or squeezing as this can cause felting or stretching.
3. Rinse thoroughly with cold water until all detergent is removed.
1. After washing, gently squeeze out excess water by pressing the knits between two clean towels. Avoid twisting.
2. Reshape your knits to their original dimensions and lay them flat on a dry towel to air dry. Avoid hanging, as this can cause stretching.
3. Dry away from direct sunlight or heat sources, as excessive heat can damage the fibers.
1. To remove pilling or fuzz, use a handheld lint shaver or a sweater comb. Gently run the shaver or comb over the surface of the knit to lift the pills.
2. Alternatively, you can use a fabric shaver to remove the pills. Be careful not to apply too much pressure to avoid damaging the knit.
Keep in mind that pilling does not indicate poor product quality. Natural fibers may experience pilling in areas where there is movement or when they come into contact with belts or bags.
1. Lavender and cedar have scents that moths dislike, making them excellent natural repellents. You can add these dried plants among your knitwear or opt for small tablets available for purchase in grocery stores.
2. Regularly clean and air out your closet. Moths prefer dark and undisturbed environments where there can find dirt and food residue.
3. Regularly rotate and wear your knitwear to prevent garments from being stored for extended periods. Frequent use and movement discourage moth infestations.
Following these care instructions will help maintain the quality and longevity of your beautiful natural fiber knits.
Always exercise caution and perform a patch test when using any new cleaning products on your knits.
