Here are some useful tips on storing sweaters in both on- and off-seasons so they remain in perfect condition.

How to Store a Sweater to Make Sure It Lasts

Yes, it is winter. We all are feeling the cold and are getting our sweaters out to feel cozy. Aran Irish sweaters are something which should be carefully taken care of in order to increase their longevity. From washing to folding to storage conditions, there’s a lot to learn when it comes to how to organize your sweaters. So here are some useful tips on storing sweaters in both on- and off-seasons so they remain in perfect condition.

2. Folding your sweater correctly is the key

Folding is an art and you have to master that art to keep your Aran wool sweaters in good condition. Folding is the best way to store your wool sweaters which helps them to keep their shape and prevent any wrinkles.

It should be noted that your Aran Irish sweaters don’t deserve to be hanged! They should ideally be folded and stored. If your sweater is a light knit, it may be hung on a wooden hanger, but never hang your woolen sweaters on cheap wire hangers.

4. Use the filing method 

Filing wool sweaters in the drawer is the perfect alternative to hanging. This filing method
allows us to easily pick the sweater when needed and also avoids damaging it. One thing to
consider while placing your clothes into the drawer is that they shouldn’t be stacked on top of
one another. They should be placed vertically, which gives your drawer more space and

Enjoy the winter season and stay cozy!
