Wondering how to keep (expensive!) cold-weather clothes in good shape and at the ready for the next deep freeze? Oak Parker and stylist Suze Solari has some helpful tips.
- To avoid holey sweaters: Moth worms are to blame for those little round holes in your cashmere and lamb's-wool pieces. These critters are attracted to food, perfume and bacteria, so the trick to thwarting them is to clean garments before storing them. For added protection, use a few cedar blocks or herbal moth repellent sachets.
- To avoid stretching knits: Fine knits keep their shape best when folded and stacked on shelves or in a drawer (no more than three deep). Heavier-gauge knit garments can be hung on padded hangers. Bonus tip: Check your knits for pilling and clean them up so they're ready for next season.
