The knitwear at Gentlemen’s Outfitters Charlestown come in a wide variety of styles, as well as in a wide variety of natural fibres such as cashmere, lambswool, Merino, and cotton.
Cashmere is the fine underfleece of Mongolian goats. This precious and delicate fibre is luxurious to wear, and has been worn by royalty and admired throughout the world.
Lambswool is a very lightweight fibre and is generally of a high quality as it is shorn from a lamb (baby sheep). As such, the fibres are younger, softer and feel amazing when worn.
Merino is also high-quality and luxurious, but is more hardwearing and durable than lambswool. Many of the Merino woolen jumpers at Gentlemen’s Outfitters Charlestown are fully machine-washable.
Cotton knitwear can be worn trans-seasonally, being a natural fibre it is lightweight and breathable and can be worn year round.
Gentlemen’s Outfitters Charlestown Tips On Knitwear
Tip 1: Top quality knitwear should be stored in zipseal or vaccuum bags in the wardrobe to protect the garment from moths and silverfish.
Tip 2: When you are washing your knitwear, invest in a top-quality woolwash, and follow the washing instructions to the letter. Do not hang them on a clothes line as they can lose shape – just lay them flat in the shade.
Tip 3: After a few wears, you may notice that your knitwear is “pilling” – small balls of fibre forming on the surface. Don’t fret, these can be easily removed using a de-piller.
