Washing and care of hand made Little Originals


We recommend hand washing your garments, as per instructions provided below.

  1. Use warm water and mix with a little mild liquid soap. For wool/wool blend you can use special wool washing fluids that utilize cold water but remember to read the label first.

  2. Submerge the garment in the water and let it soak for about 5 minutes. Do not overly agitate your Little Original. You can accidentally stretch it out if you put too much pressure on it.

  3. Carefully rinse the garment in lukewarm water.

  4. Squeeze as much water as you can from the garment. Remember…DO NOT TWIST OR WRING the garment. Like the above tip, wringing can lead to some very sad results like felting or stretching (never to be returned to normal).

  5. Wrap the garment in a towel. Gently squeeze the towel. Unwrap, lay it flat on a dry towel and let it air dry in a cool place.

Remember: Never put a fine knit garment into a dryer/tumble dryer.


If for any reason your Little Original garment needs some TLC (frayed ribbons, unravelled stitching, etc.) please contact us at littleoriginal2018@gmail.com and we will do our best to help you.
