Clothing care tips

Woollens

Getting bobbling on your favourite cashmere sweater? Here's some advice from Steve, our resident fabric care expert.

Because of the way that wool is made these days - with too much fibre left on individual strands - even expensive knitwear can bobble quite easily.

Don't use a comb on your knits - they do get bobbles off the surface, but they also pull a lot of fibres out of the main strands and actually make the problem worse. The best solution is to gently shave the bobbles away.

What our customers say

"Steve knows his product and his materials really well. He has a very clear view about how things need to be treated - he has the experience of how to handle different things. Also, he's been very accommodating if I need last-minute things. If I get something and need to wear it the next day, he'll have it back."
