Washing Handknits

 

Why wash by hand?

Although many of the fibers used in Shibui Knits yarns are commonly thought of as machine washable, we recommend that you hand wash your projects to ensure the longevity of your finished garment, as well as preserve its appearance. Hand washing also draws your attention to the condition of the garment, so you can complete small repairs before they become a problem.
