CARING FOR MOLLI KNITS
Quality has been a central value at Molli for 130 years due to the brand's rigorous selection of extra-fine materials such as pure new wool and pure combed cotton. To ensure that Molli knits remain soft and hard-wearing, these garments must be properly cared for by favouring gentle washing. It is important to always read the instructions on the composition and care labels. .
In order to preserve the beauty of your Molli clothes, turn them inside out when washing to prevent snagging and avoid damaging fasteners. In case of machine washing, use a mesh laundry bag.
WASHING WOOL KNITS
In order to protect the delicacy, suppleness and length of Molli pure new wool fibres, knits should be washed by hand in cold water. Use a special wool detergent with a neutral pH to protect the garments’ natural properties. Do not use fabric softeners or bleach and do not soak garments as this will damage the fibres. Rinse garments several times in clean water. Squeeze very gently to avoid twisting and ensure garments do not lose their shape. Some Molli styles are extremely delicate because of their hand-sewn finishes, cut or fabric composition (for example trousers, jackets and dresses). In these cases, the garment should always be dry-cleaned to protect its soft texture and beauty. It is therefore important to refer to the instructions on the composition label.
In order to protect the delicacy and length of Molli's pure combed cotton fibres, knits should be machine washed on a delicate cycle at no more than 30° (only muslin squares, bodysuits, and T-shirts from the Newborn range can be washed at 40°). Do not use fabric softeners or bleach. Choose a gentle spin cycle to avoid
twisting and ensure garments do not lose their shape.

DRYING MOLLI KNITS
To maintain their shape and fit, all Molli styles should be dried flat on a towel. Do not tumble-dry and do not leave garments to dry on a hanger as this will cause them to lose their shape. Direct heat should also be avoided as it may alter the delicacy and length of fibres. Do not dry garments in the sun as this will causeyellowing.
IRONING MOLLI KNITS
Molli knits should be warm ironed on the reverse side to avoid damaging the fibres of the materials. For pure new wool garments, placing a damp cloth between the iron and the garment is strongly recommended to avoid shiny marks.
OTHER CONSIDERATIONS FOR MOLLI KNITS
Over time, knits may snag or pill in places where the fabric is rubbed. Special pill remover devices exist to care for knit garments. To fix snags, small, easy-to-use crochet hooks can be used to pull the threads through to the other side of the damaged garments. To eliminate pilling, pilling razors are very effective and do not damage the beauty and soft texture of garments.
