Care advice

All of our products are designed to be durable and long lasting, but it's important to care for them so they stay beautiful for life.


Most of our silver items are made using Argentium Silver - also known as 935 Silver. It’s more pure than traditional 925 Sterling Silver, making it brighter and more resistant to tarnish. It is also highly hypoallergenic, so ideal for sensitive skin types.

The anti-tarnish polishing cloth provided with the Argentium products will help to restore them to their optimal state. It can be reused many times. Don’t wash the cloth, a it is impregnated with polishing compound.

You can also polish silver with mild toothpaste & water. A light buff with a soft cloth will shine it up good as new.

All tools should be kept away from abrasive things and harsh chemicals.
It's best to keep them away from cleaning products, chlorinated pools and body products just to be safe.

Gold Fill

Gold fill is a thick laver of 14 karat Gold over a brass core. It is very durable and behaves just like solid gold.

It is tarnish resistant, great for sensitive skin, and with a little care it can last a lifetime! Just keep it away from chlorine, cleaning products, or scratchy or abrasive things.


Our solid brass items are super strong and durable! Brass darkens over time, but the anti-tarnish polishing cloth provided will make it sparkle. 

Yarn Cutters

It is important to keep the blade away from water to avoid oxidisation and rust. If it does get wet, dry it with a cloth immediately and leave it out in a warm place to dry fully inside and out.

The tempered Japanese blade should last a lifetime however if it ever needs to be repaired or sharpened, just let us know and we can sharpen it for free.

You can polish your yarn cutter with the included polishing cloth, avoiding the darkened parts of the engraved design. 


Understanding how to care for your yarn is important. After spending so much time knitting or crocheting, you'll want the finished product to look great and last as long as possible.

Taking care of skeins

Keep your yarn out of direct sunlight in a cool, dry location.

Hand dyed yarn comes wound into a skein. Keep it this way as long as possible until you're ready to use it. When a project is ready to begin, wind it up into a ball. 

Using a swift and ball winder is the simplest way to wind a ball. But your hands and the back of a chair work just fine as well. 

Washing your knits in the machine

Superwash wool clothing can be washed in the washing machine using the gentle/wool cycle. However, we advise hand washing to lengthen the life of your finished projects.

Washing knits by hand

Pour some lukewarm water into your sink, then add a drop of mild soap, shampoo or conditioner. Submerge your knitted/crocheted item in the water, gently pushing it down, and slowly swirl it around. Do not squeeze it or agitate it too much as this can cause felting and pilling.

Soak the item for about 30 minutes, or until it is thoroughly saturated. Again being careful not to squeeze or agitate it too much, take the item out of the water and allow it to drain.

Spread out a towel, place the item on top, pat it into roughly the desired shape and roll it up in the towel. You can now press on the towel, or even stand on to absorb most of the water. Then it's time to block it!


Blocking is how we set the shape of our knitted and crocheted items.

Lay out flat on a flat surface to dry, spreading into shape and pinning if necessary.
Leave it to dry naturally. That's it!


Projects may develop pills (bobbles) over time. An electric de-piller or lint remover is the safest and most effective tool for removing pills from a project. These tools shave the pills off the project's surface without damaging the stitches. Some people use a regular razor, but it's more risky.
