Everything by Alanui will seamlessly integrate into your existing wardrobe. Alanui's pieces never fail to make a statement. Wool items are a great investment, and it pays to care for them properly. To prolong the original condition of your knitwear, we would always recommend checking the instructions on the care label before attempting to launder. One of the worst things you can do to wool garments is to wash them in hot water or tumble dry, as high temperatures can cause the fabric to shrink quickly. Most wool clothing can also be dry cleaned safely. Most wool is washable, with the main exception of structured pieces like suits, jackets and blazers, which are best spot cleaned. To prevent damage from occurring during the cleaning process, hand wash in lukewarm water or place in a mesh laundry bag and select a cold, low-speed cycle on the machine. To minimize the risk of shrinkage, it is advised to soak in cold water before you put in the machine. Turning wool garments inside out and gently reshaping before air drying flat will keep them in tiptop condition. Knitted items should not be hung, instead fold and store out of direct sunlight in a cool, dry place. For quality knitwear that surpasses trends and seasons, look no further than Alanui.

How To Care For Your Alanui Knitwear
All knitwear from Alanui is spun in Italy from natural fibers such as cashmere and wool. Many pieces in the collection are made from 100% cashmere, or a wool, silk and cotton blend. Most items are dry clean or hand wash only, and need to be stored and cared for correctly to prolong their quality.
General care guidelines:
- Always check the wash label for full cleaning instructions
- Store your knitwear in a garment bag to avoid dust
- Allow to air dry naturally if your knitwear gets wet
- Avoid direct contact with chemicals or deodorant and perfume sprays
- Take extra care when wearing jewelry as snags can develop on the yarn
- Brush 100% cashmere garments with a cashmere comb to maintain their condition
- Keep away from direct sunlight, heat or damp when not in use
- How are Alanui cardigans and sweaters made?
Knitwear from Alanui is spun and made in Italy using the finest Italian cashmere, and can take anywhere between five and seven hours to be completed. Each garment is lovingly and painstakingly crafted to offer wearers sustainable luxury and a quality wardrobe staple that looks even better with time.
For garments that feature embellishments or beading, it can take even longer than seven hours to make. Cardigans from this label range from 1000gr for lighter pieces to 2300gr in weight, and can use up as many as seven yarns each during production. Any fringing is handmade, and all pieces are finished with a hand-woven label.
- How much does an Alanui cardigan cost?
Alanui knitwear can range from $600 (USD) for lightweight sweaters to $4,500+ (USD) for heavyweight 2300gr belted cardigans. The signature cardigan comes at a higher price point due to the intense labor, hours of craftsmanship and high cost materials that go into the production of each one. All pieces from this brand are made with the finest Italian cashmere and wool, and are made to last for many years.
- How will my Alanui sweater or cardigan be presented?
All knitwear from Alanui is presented in a tactile paper box, and some pieces may come with a garment bag for storage. As a finishing touch, the team at Alanui will spritz a Hawaiin fragrance on each cardigan before boxing. This is the scent of the brand, which is instantly recognizable on many of its luxury garments.
