Angora sweaters can look oh so stylish—or they can make you look like a crazy cat lady. Here’s how to stop them from shedding.
You will need
- An angora sweater
- A ziplock freezer bag
- A freezer
Step 1 Put it in a bag Carefully fold the angora sweater and place it in a sturdy plastic freezer bag.
Step 2 Place in freezer Put the bag inside your freezer. Just don’t confuse it with the frozen peas when you’re making dinner.
Step 3 Wait Keep the bag in the freezer for at least three hours — the longer, the better.
When you buy angora, spring for the expensive stuff. Cheap angora tends to be woven with looser fibers, leading to shedding.
Step 4 Wear it Take the sweater out of the freezer when you’re ready to put it on. It will warm up in a few minutes and will keep from shedding for the time you’re wearing it.
Step 5 Put it back When you’re ready to take it off, put the sweater back in the freezer.
