MACHINE WASHABLE GARMENTS 2016

IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT OUR CURRENTLY OFFERED MW GARMENTS (2016 RELEASE):

For this batch of wool the knitting machine parameters were tweaked by out knitter without our knowledge. The result is that these wool garments have a slightly looser knit compared to our past stockings. This tiny bit of variance gave rise to garments that shed more fuzzies and are a bit more susceptible to pulls.

We would like to stress that this is not specific to machine-washable wool. We coincidentally knitted these batches with all machine-washable wool. We have since worked with the knitter to resolve the issue and we have assurance that future garments made with either standard or machine-washable wool will be rugged like our past garments with a much tighter knit that you have  all grown to love. This has been verified with samples of both types of wool.

The colors affected include the following listed in order of looseness from loosest to tightest knit: Spectra, Titanium, Cadet, Orchid, Delta, Prism. The following were all knit together and are all similar to each and a bit tighter than the others: Bumble, Marmot, Varsity, Cosmo, Cheshire, Blush and Bayside.

HOW TO BEST CARE FOR THE MW GARMENTS FROM THIS BATCH:

  1. Tumble dry on low-med/low heat (with a load of laundry for sufficient tumbling) at least 1-2 times to get the wool to plump up. You will lose a bit of size (comparison photos herebut no more than you would lose length-wise after hand-washing our standard wool leggings. You will also notice a bit of slimming in the hip and leg girth but the garment remains stretchy.
  2. Diligently shave the fuzzies while the wool is heavily shedding. Reduced fuzziness will reduce chances of the fuzz catching/pulling on pointy objects.
  3. Lanolizing (even if you don't need it) can help keep fuzziness down and therefore pulls.
  4. Being a bit more mindful with this 2016 wool will help keep pulls to a minimum (2016 wool is denoted on the turquoise printed tag).
