A woollen garment is something precious. Especially when it’s hand knitted. They are cherished items made to be worn proudly. We also know that with a bit of extra love and care they can last us for decades. Truth is, as fun as it is to show off your latest knits, the cleaning part of it is not remotely as exciting. The simple prospect of spending an hour hunched over my bath tub is usually enough to fill me with boredom.
