Does angora shed?

Yes, if it doesn't shed, it is not angora. Angora sweaters are known for being soft and beautiful, but also unfortunately known for their tendency to shed on everything. While there is not a lot you can do to stop the shedding, you can control it to some extent.  The fibre mix in this Portland sweater means it won't shed as much as a sweater with a higher content of angora in it.

What can you do to minimise shedding?

1. Wear it. 

The fibres will settle & flatten with use

2. Freeze it.

Seal in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer overnight. This makes the loose fibres easy to shake out. After freezing, shake vigorously and the loose fibres will shake out all at once rather than throughout the day.

3. Keep it in a moist environment.

One of the reasons angora sheds is because the fibres can get statically charged. Use a humidifier, or hand in the bathroom when you shower.

 

In a nutshell, the Portland angora knit sweater isn't just clothing; it's a whole vibe – combining luxury, comfort, and style into one fabulous package. Get ready to turn heads and feel fabulous every time you slip it on!

Care Instructions

Following these care instructions will help preserve the quality and appearance of your Portland angora knit sweater for years to come.

Material Composition: 70% Angora, 20% Fine Wool, 10% Nylon

Washing:

  • Hand wash only. Fill a basin or sink with lukewarm water and add a small amount of mild detergent.
  • Gently submerge the sweater in the water and agitate it with your hands to distribute the detergent.
  • Allow the sweater to soak for 5-10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with cool water until all soap residue is removed.
  • Avoid wringing or twisting the sweater, as this can cause stretching and damage to the fibres.

Drying:

  • After washing, gently press the excess water out of the sweater by pressing it between clean towels.
  • Reshape the sweater to its original dimensions, smoothing out any wrinkles or creases.
  • Lay the sweater flat on a clean, dry towel and allow it to air dry away from direct sunlight or heat sources.
  • Avoid hanging the sweater while wet, as this can cause it to stretch out of shape.

Storage:

  • Store the sweater folded neatly in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and moisture.
  • Avoid hanging the sweater for long periods, as this can cause stretching and distortion of the fibres.
  • To prevent moth damage, store the sweater with cedar balls or lavender sachets.

Ironing:

  • If ironing is necessary, use a low to medium heat setting and place a clean cloth between the iron and the sweater to prevent direct contact.
  • Using steam will help restore the shape if the sweater has been hanging up.

Pilling:

  • Angora and wool blends may experience some natural pilling over time. Use a fabric shaver or sweater comb to gently remove any pills, taking care not to damage the fibres.

General Tips:

  • Avoid exposing the sweater to harsh chemicals, bleach, or fabric softeners, as these can damage the fibres.
