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.Read more care tips
Review of Swans Dry Cleaners5 Swans Dry Cleaners Business
"A lot of my clothes are from McQueen or Commes des Garçons or Lanvin, so to put clothes like that, at that expense, in someone's hands, that could actually go one way or another. With Steve, everything always comes back 100%. The standards that they have are second to none. I think that's what makes them stand out from the rest of the dry cleaners. You know for a fact that whenever you actually send anything in to Steve, it's always going to come back guaranteed like you've just bought it."
