Recommended Fabric Care: Blocking Mats by KnitIQ

Blocking Mats Knit iQ square

Blocking mats are the perfect way to dry and block your knit garments. The grid lines help you keep the garment edges straight, and large T-pins let you pin the piece to the recommended measurements. A blocking mat is a must for large lace shawls or any garment you need to lay out flat to dry.

Recommended Fabric Care: Soak by Soak Wash

Soak Wool Wash Celebration Scent square sm

My favorite no-rinse wool wash for blocking your knit garments. Comes in lovely scents and also unscented. Just squirt some in cold water and add your garment (or gauge swatch) and let soak for 15-20 minutes. Squeeze to remove water and lay flat to dry or block.

Aqua Sock Blockers Medium Knitters Pride square

Sock blockers are the perfect way to make your finished socks look their best. Whether you are going to keep them for yourself or give the socks as a gift, the last step before you wear your knit socks is always to block them. The even and smooth shape persists even after machine washing and drying.

Recommended Fabric Care: Sweater Shaver by Beautural

Sweater Shaver square sm

A fabric or sweater shaver is a must for keeping your garments pill-free. Pilling happens when soft knit fibers break and felt together. Pulling out the pills with your fingers breaks the fibers more, resulting in more pilling. Instead, take 2 minutes to shave the pills off garments like cashmere sweaters. A must before taking photos for Ravelry.
