How to dry knitwear

Drying your knits the right way is important to maintain their quality and shape. Never wring or hang-dry knitwear, as wool stretches easily, especially when wet. Instead, roll the garment in a clean and dry towel before gently pressing it. Once the towel has absorbed the excess water, carefully ease your knit into shape and lay it flat on top of a dry towel or a drying rack. While you might be tempted to place your woollen garment near or on top of a heater to dry faster, you should avoid doing so, as too much heat can damage the delicate fibres and cause your knitwear to shrink.
