How do I care for my knitwear?
Please refer to our GARMENT CARE page for instructions on how to wash, dry, clean and store your garment.
Do you do repairs?
If you accidentally damage your blanket or garment we may be able to repair it. Please bring your garment into our Ballarat showroom/store for an assessment and quote. If you are not local please contact us via email including photos of the damage and we will do our best to provide an assessment and quote before having you send it to us.
Are the colours pictured exact colours?
Please note that all monitors display colours differently, so 100% accuracy of these colour swatches can’t be guaranteed.
Where are your blankets and knitwear made?
We make all our blankets and knitwear in Ballarat, Victoria. Sometimes our tags will simply say ‘Made In Australia’ but please be assured we have made it in Ballarat.
Where does your Merino Wool come from?
The Merino wool we use is Australian Merino wool. Due to a lack of commercial spinning plants in Australia, the Australian wool is sent overseas to be spun and is then re-imported from countries such as India and China.
Will my Blanket or Knitwear shrink?
We shrink the knitted pieces of your garment on our heat presses before we cut them to size. After they have been sewed, the majority of our knitwear will be gently machine washed and cool tumble dried before being pressed again and folded into shape. This process, along with our high-quality yarns, means you should not expect any shrinkage in the wash beyond 2% of the original blanket or knitwear size.
Please never use a high heat setting on the tumble dry for your garment as this is known to cause knitwear to shrink.
Will my Blanket or Knitwear stretch?
With proper care, your knitwear won’t stretch. If you accidentally use a high spin cycle on your washing machine you can try to pull your garment back into shape at the sides so it will dry without stretching.
If you’ve hung your Garter Stitch, try to tumble dry it on a cool setting and this may help it regain its shape. Please note that tumble drying is only recommended to be used on low heat settings and for short periods of time.
