How to care for Thin Knit/Summer Knit
Summer knits have been in fashion for quite long now. Whether it’s to pull off semi-casual work outfit, night out at friend’s place, or just another dinner date, you can easily adorn the perfect look with thin knitwear. Even when it’s hot out, light outerwear and other items for staying warm in chilly air-conditioned interiors are essential. While everyone wants to have such colorful knitwear clothing in her wardrobe, the laundering concerns keep most away from buying them.
Are you one of those? Well, for everyone who wants to buy or already have summer knitwear in their wardrobe here are the thin kit caring guidelines to keep their shape, texture, color, and longevity.
Six essential points to remember while laundering thin knit:
How to launder and dry washable knitwear
Laundering thin knitwear, like a light V-neck cardigan or UV cut cardigan, is no different from laundering regular washable knits. However, the fabric is thin, so it is important to guard against fraying and wrinkling.
Place thin knitwear in laundry nets that have a tight weave
Always place knits in laundry nets when machine washing them. Use nets with tight weaves when laundering thin knits as with the loose weave, the chances of snagging are more.
Choose a laundry net that’s the right size and not one that’s too big for the item. The bigger net will allow the item to move around, which can cause wrinkling and deformation.
How to avoid fading in summer knit
When drying the knit, always flat dry in the shade instead of direct sunlight as it may cause discoloration.
Change laundering methods per stains
When regular washing of knits or when they aren’t too dirty, select the shorter wash cycle.
Even when using the mild or delicate cycle, shorten the wash, rinse, and spin cycles. If the stains are light, they’ll come out even in short wash courses.
Regular care extends the lives of knitwear
If you shape the knit in its regular state, the result is a nice, clean appearance.
When you take off knits upon returning home, steam the sections that are stretched or wrinkled. That will minimize the spread of odors as well.
Caring for thin knits is no different from caring for regular knits. Remember, however, the fabric is more delicate because the fibers are finer. Guard against snagging when wearing and handling thin knits. Even if you think laundering is a hassle, just a little bit of regular care can greatly extend the life of the knit. So give it a try!
