Caring for your Angora garments:
- Clean angora only when it gets soiled.
- Cleaning angora too much can break down the sweater.
- Dry cleaning angora is the best way to care for it, but you can also hand wash it with cold water.
- Avoid sunlight & bleach, as they can damage the material. Never tumble-dry or wring out an angora sweater, because it will stretch & pull the fibers.
- Add salt to the water to prevent colors from running when washing angora.
- Place an angora sweater in the freezer for 20 minutes to restore fluffiness.
Washing instructions for your Angora garments:
- Fill a sink or bathtub with barely warm water.
- Add approx. 1 tbsp. of clear natural liquid soap. Do not use any soap that has dyes or perfumes.
- Swirl the water around to mix the soap into the water & make it a little sudsy.
- Place the Angora sweater into the water. Push down on the sweater & gently squeeze, use the same action as if you were kneading dough. Continue to do this all over the entire sweater. Do not twist or pull on the sweater.
- Let the water out of the sink or bathtub and refill with clean water, press down & gently squeeze the sweater.
- Let the water out of the sink or tub.
- Press down on the sweater to remove some of the excess water. Do not twist or wring the sweater.
- Lay the sweater flat to dry on a clean, dry, white towel. Do not press on the sweater with the towel because you will flatten the fluffy finish of the sweater. Change the towel often & flip the sweater over while it is drying. When flipping or handling only handle the towel & use the towel to flip the sweater to avoid stretching the sweater out of shape. Do not allow an Angora sweater to dry in the sun.
