Recommended – 35 degrees using a good hand wash soap – rinse once and don't wring when taking the excess water out of the washed jumper. Dry flat on a towel or drip dry over a laundry horse in the bath. Don't be tempted with a tumble dryer – instant shrinkage troubles! 

Also recommended.

Most modern domestic washing machines have a 35 degree hand/wool wash programme. These are good and if the correct hand wash detergent is used no problem. Just remember do not go anywhere near a tumble dryer – dry flat on a towel. 

All woollen sweaters pill, that is, little bobbles appear on the surface of the sweater as you wear it. We are sorry to say this is unavoidable. We try to help by knitting our jumpers a little tighter – it stops the surface fibres from breaking free and causing the pilling. The best thing we can say is that if you look after your sweater and wash regularly the problem will reduce and eventually stop.

A 5 gauge 2 ply Shetland style wool sweater made in one piece using zero waste knitting technology pioneered in Japan. The combination of new technology and Scottish knitwear know-how makes for a great fitting and wonderfully soft jumper. We chose the saddle shoulder armhole shape as this fits most body types very well and works to perfection with a classic crew neck. The ribbed neck, hem and cuffs are set out in a 2x1 pattern and this adds just the right amount of ruggedness to the sweater that is truly for all seasons. Hand wash (this really is the way to make your knitwear last) or dry clean only.
