Animal fibers｜Care Instruction
When it comes to cleaning animal fiber yarn, you'll want to treat it gently to prevent felting, which can happen when animal fibers are exposed to heat and agitation.
Here's what you should do:
Use cold water instead of warm or hot water for washing.
You can use soap or neutral laundry detergent, but be careful not to over-agitate and treat it with care.
After washing, gently wring out excess water by hand, then use a towel to blot dry, or use a spin-dry function.
If you choose to air dry in sunlight, avoid prolonged exposure to strong sunlight, and never use a tumble dryer.
If your animal fiber yarn includes silk, remember to minimize exposure to direct sunlight.
If you ever need to iron your yarn (for example, if it's become curled or uneven after knitting and you want to straighten it out), here's what you should do:
Set your iron to the temperature suitable for "wool" or "delicate" fabrics.
Place a clean cloth or towel over your yarn before ironing to protect the fibers.
When ironing, avoid leaving the iron in one spot for too long to prevent damaging the fibers.
With these steps, you can safely and effectively iron your yarn without causing any harm.
。Dealing with piling
It is recommended to remove pilling by cutting with scissors or hair trimmer rather than pulling.
Household bugs like clothes moths and carpet beetles often feast on animal fibers, so if you're storing yarn or textiles
long-term, use a breathable sealed bag and add insect repellent inside without direct contact with the items.
