Sustainable, ecological and ethical knitwear for women from IVALO.COM
Durable and long-lasting, women's knitwear is the best in clothing. A woman's wardrobe needs a range of knitwear for the office and for leisure, and IVALO.COM's range of sustainable womenswear includes knitwear as one of its favorites.
In knitwear, the material plays a significant role. Natural materials are warm on the body and do not get static even in winter. They are sometimes blended with other fibers to add durability, for example.
The IVALO.COM range includes knitwear made from, for example, high-quality merino wool. Merino wool is a popular material because of its excellent properties. It is warming but breathable simultaneously, and merino wool clothing keeps you comfortable even when you sweat.
High-quality merino wool is also often suitable for people with sensitive skin, as it is non-itchy.
It is also responsible to manufacture women's sweaters and cardigans from surplus. For example, Swedish company Residus and Finnish company Ekta Helsinki use locally produced sheep's wool in their knitwear, which would otherwise end up in the trash.
Our knitwear range also includes women's knits made from cotton. Cotton is a lightweight and durable material. Women's cotton sweater is versatile and can be worn in the warm season as well as all year round. Many brands sold at IVALO.COM prefer Fair Trade or organic cotton in their sweaters.

Love for a long time - How to care for your knitwear
Keep your knitwear in good condition for years to come by caring for them properly. The maintenance of a sweater or cardigan depends on the material it is made from. Take a look at the knitwear's own care instructions label to find the instructions for that particular product.
Air often and wash rarely. Wool is naturally antibacterial, so it doesn't need to be washed often. Remove stains locally. Sweaters should be treated gently with a clothes brush and a lint brush. If you brush the knitwear with a clothes brush after each use, lint often doesn't even get a chance to form. Brushing with a clothes brush also removes dust and dried stains that have accumulated during the day.
If your knitwear needs washing, use mild detergents specifically designed for wool. Wash by hand or machine wash on the wool wash program in cool water, according to the instructions on the label. It is also advisable to dry the knitwear after washing according to the material. Do not wrinkle or twist the knitwear to dry, as this may damage the fibers of the shirt. Preferably, dry the knitwear flat, laid out in its shape. The use of a tumble dryer is not recommended.
