As the styles of sweaters change, so do the fibers of this wardrobe staple. Sweaters are made from a variety of fibers, ranging from cotton and wool to silk, rayon, acrylic and more. Natural fibers, such as angora, mohair, cashmere, and Shetland are especially popular. To add to the variety many sweaters contain special decorative trims. Trims such as suede, leather, snakeskin, fur, sequins, and beads add to a sweater's special look. Caring for these delicate sweater knits requires special attention.

How do I clean my sweater without ruining it?

Follow your sweater's care label instructions closely to prevent shrinkage and stretching. Many sweaters are hand-wash only. It's usually best to lay them flat to dry unless the care label says it's safe to tumble-dry the sweater at low heat. Some sweaters are gentle-cycle washable and others may require drycleaning.

Daisy to the Rescue!

Remember that delicate items require special handling. Different fabrics can present different challenges to cleaning sweaters. Daisy Cleaners is well versed in all the various styles and fibers. We will get the job done with a minimum amount of fuss on your part. Sweaters and knit garments, depending on their fiber type, are susceptible to various problems, including stretching, shrinkage, pulls, and pilling, both from use and cleaning.

Some stretching on knit items should be expected as a normal circumstance of wear and care. Generally, the softer the knit, the more likely it is to show some change in texture or feel with normal wear, and this may be aggravated with washing or cleaning procedures.
