Caring for your Knits

Each garment is crafted using natural fibres of superior quality. In order to maintain their longevity garments need special care.


Wash your knits with a mild detergent in cool water by hand. It is best to avoid using harsh chemical sprays , or bleaches so not to alter the natural characteristics and softness of the yarn. Soak knit in basin and swirl gently making sure not to rub together. Soak for up to 20 minutes. When ready, drain and rinse garment again in cool water. Gently press excess water out. Remove and spread garment on a thick dry towel. Roll garment in towel to remove excess water and lay flat to dry. Avoid hanging, twisting or crumpling your knitwear while it is in the drying process to keep the original shape. Drying make take 1-2 days depending on the weight of the knit. 

Dry Cleaning

Carolyn Ferreira does not recommend machine washing or tumble drying your knitwear. If you feel uncomfortable with the hand washing process, please take it to your local Dry Cleaner for a secure alternative option.  

Stay in Shape

Hanging garments for long periods of time can ultimately stretch or misshape the item. Store your knits folded in a closet or drawers for lasting wear.
