Product Care


MARLOTA fabrics are designed to be rediscovered season after season; we produce functional and effortless designs with longevity in mind using only high quality Italian yarns. With proper care, the natural qualities of wool fibers can be maintained for years.

All of our pieces come with a tag care label; to maintain the soft feel and appearance of your garment, follow these instructions carefully. In addition to our general care instructions, we have put together a simple guide to prolong the life of your garments:



Fibers like wool, alpaca and cashmere are naturally antibacterial and odor-repellent, so you don't need to wash them every time you wear them, ideal you should wash the garments few times a season to maintain their shape and strength. To keep your knitwear fresh between uses, simply let them air out, always faraway from direct sunlight. Try rotating your fabrics between uses, allowing each one to have its own time to cool down and breathe. In case of spill, simply wipe the area gently with a damp cloth or sponge. Never rub the fabric, as it will encourage pilling.

Pilling occurs naturally on the surface of wool garments over time, especially in areas that receive frequent friction. To remove them, simply brush gently with a sweater comb.

Certain fibers like mohair, alpaca, and cashmere tend to shed the first few times you use them. To prevent the excess hair from falling out, use a lint roller to remove the excess hair from your garment.

Steaming can also help refresh wool fabrics between uses. The heat and humidity of the steam should be applied carefully, always through a cotton cloth, relaxes the fabric.

Not only by following these simple steps will help your clothes last longer, but you will also reduce water consumption.




Hand wash your garments individually using a special mild liquid soap in warm water, around 30ºC. There are special detergents for wool and knitwear on the market. Never bleach or use regular laundry powder, as this will weaken and break the fibers. When washing merino knitwear, avoid using fabric softener as it will make the fibers less breathable.

Never soak your fabrics as this can cause them to shrink. Instead, squeeze the garment into the water gently and steadily, remembering not to twist or rub the fabric. Carefully rinse the garment in the water and try to squash out as much water as you can without wringing it.

Occasionally, due to the structure of knitwear or the spinning process of some designs, we need to follow only the dry cleaning care instructions. We recommend selecting a dry cleaner that is an expert in working with knitwear and fine fibers.



Carefully wrap the fabric in a dry towel and squeeze gently. Unwrap it and place it on a new towel, adjusting the garment to maintain its shape, and let it air dry in a cool place, away from sunlight or direct heat sources. Once dry, gently steam through a cotton or linen cloth to relax the fibers and return them to their original state.



Store your folded knitwear in drawers, as hanging it will stretch your garments and warp them.

To store it for a long period of time, place your fabric in a cotton bag so it can breathe and add a small bag of lavender or aromatic cedar blocks to keep away the moths . Moths are not attracted to fiber as much as they are to dirt or body oils on clothing, so make sure your fabrics are adequately clean before storing them and keep them in a cool, dry space.



No knitted garment is immune, so when wearing it you should always keep in mind that due to its delicate nature, it can be easily torn off by jewelry or nails. If you happen to tear your knitwear, you can fix it; We add an extra strands of thread on the hang tag envelope for small repairs.
