As someone who has lived in areas that experience all 4 seasons my whole life, I have developed a healthy sweater collection in my closet over the years. However, I’ve also experienced my fair share of unintentional sweater sacrifices to the Dryer Gods on several occasions. I’m sure that I don’t have to tell you about how bad it sucks when you go to pull your cozy cardigan from the wash, only to find it mangled in a shrunken, matted mess. Luckily, I’ve picked up a few tips over the years on how to properly care for my garments, and I thought I’d help you avoid my past heartbreaks by sharing them with you today!
**Please note that all of these tips and tricks will help preserve any sweater, vintage or not, but with vintage pieces, there can be excess wear or unknown fiber content which will change your approach a bit when it comes to your handling.
