Mohair is a precious wool that felts itself easily when heated and rubbed. Wash your jumper by hand in <30 degrees lukewarm water and a mild detergent. Rinse it generously without using softener. Squeeze without wringing and dry flat, moving the jumper while drying so as not to crease the knitting. Store flat your jumper in a dust-free, don’t hang it up. To keep it for a long time, avoid wearing it several days in a row.
