At the beginning of the month, I shared the tips from the team about caring for your knits, and we've loved hearing how helpful you've found them! Since then, you have been generously sharing your own tips, and as always, they are awesome!
Something that has struck me since we started talking about caring for your knits, is just how easy it is to care for wool and knitwear. I think growing up with fast fashion and knitwear that can easily be thrown in the washing machine at 40 degrees and hung on a washing line to dry, left me with the perception that caring for knitting is actually hard and time-consuming.

As you know, here at Making Stories, we're all about knitting sustainably, and one area of sustainability we haven't explored much is caring for your knits. That is until now!
Why does caring for your knits count towards sustainability?

So during that time, you're going to have to give it some love so it can keep loving you back!
