Most items with minor damage are being returned within 2-3 months. Items with several holes and alterations may take a little longer.

Sandy's Tip ~
Woolen and cashmere items have the unique ability to pick-up odors and to release them. If you wore your favorite cashmere to a smoky barbeque, it will remind you of the event the next morning. In most cases an airing of the sweater will free it of the smell in a day or two. This is why even the scent of moth balls will fade in a few days. Before you put the sweater in a closet or drawer, let it hang in an airy space to freshen it up. There are some scents that one must try to avoid. Such as a strong perfume or wearing a woolen or cashmere knit while cooking. This is because the scent is actually carried on fine oils that will be imbedded into the fibers of the knit. In those instances, the item will need to be cleaned to totally remove the scent. More on cleaning knits next month. In the meantime, try airing your knits to freshen them.
