Special notes for your knits —

If there are loose ends of yarn showing, these may be from the linking stitch. This is a very natural occurrence for knitted garments. This is not a sign of unraveling. Simply tuck the strand back into a nearby seam, or tie it off.

Due to knit construction, knits are naturally prone to snagging and should a snag occur on your garment, do not cut it off as it will cause unraveling. Instead, pull it through to the reverse side of the garment to hide it. Or, weave the snag into the existing knit strands with a tapestry (or finishing) needle taking extra caution to not disrupt the surrounding knit.


Be kind to your pieces for longevity. With proper care, your tennley pieces are designed to last you for many seasons to come.
