FAQ on Product Sizing and Ordering
Frequently Asked Questions
> YOUR L’ENVERS KNITS
What size should I order?
You can view our size guide here. You can also see size advice on each product page. Still a doubt? Talk to us, we are always glad to advise you. You can contact us at email@example.com or chatting with us by clicking on the bubble at the bottom of your screen, where we can give you personalized style and fitting tips! Send us your bust, waist, and hip measurements along with your height. If you’re up for it, photos always help us when providing a recommendation, as well! If despite our advice the size is not good, the return is easy and possible. We will refund you the shipping costs entirely or partially depending on where you ship the parcel from. Please see full information in the RETURN section to find out more.
What if I am in between two sizes?
Our pieces are designed to be more or less oversized. You can find in each product page an indication on the fit, in the DETAILS part. If you are between two sizes, we would recommend to go with the larger size, if the piece is fitted, and the smaller size, if the piece is not fitted.
What is your new sizing / Why did I receive a piece labeled S/M if I ordered an S?
We have changed the name of our sizes, but not the sizes themselves. Meaning that a former S/M is now called an S, a former M/L is now an M and a former L/XL is now an L. The measurements remain the same. We still have labels with S/M, M/L and L/XL at our workshop and in order to not waste any label that is still good, you may receive a piece with an S/M label when ordering an S size. Rest assured, you ordered the right size and the measurements are good.
How can I know if it is itchy?
This is always a tricky question as everyone has a different sensitivity to each wool. We provide a softness indication in every product page so that you can know a bit more, available in the DETAILS section.
Here are a few facts about the softness of each of our fabrics, keeping in mind that depending on skins, weather, laundry detergent and dyes, this will vary.
If you love your knit but still find it too itchy, you can wear a cotton t-shirt underneath it. Keep in mind that every wool will soften with time, with wears and washes.
- Alpaca: this is known as a very soft wool, and it gets softer the more you wear it. So don’t hesitate to wear it a few times, and you’ll see how soft it will become.
- Mohair: mainly known as a soft wool, some people can find it itchy when worn directly to the skin. If this is your case, just put a cotton t-shirt underneath it.
- Merino: this rustic and authentic wool is surprisingly soft. Depending on the colors, it can be very soft for light colors, and some people might find it a bit more itchy for dark/bright colors.
- Yak: this is our softest wool. Yak is known to be as soft as cashmere, just more sustainable :)
- Organic cotton: our cotton is as soft as a cloud. No allergies nor itchiness possible.
How do I wash my L’Envers piece?
You can find here all info about washing and caring for your pieces, organic cotton or natural wool.
How do I remove pilling?
If your knit is shedding too many fibres, washing helps remove them. You can also use a comb, like the one we offer here.
How? Lay your pullover flat, stretch very gently and comb it from top to bottom.
Pullovers with long fibres, such as mohair, are likely to shed onto other garments. This is quite normal and is due to the length of the fibre that sheds naturally. You can use a brush to remove the hairs from your other clothing.
And what about felting?
When wet woolen fibres are rubbed against each other, the scales on the fibres cling to each other. Detergent produces lather which encourages rubbing and results in felting. You should limit the amount of detergent used when caring for your knitwear and fabric softeners should not be used at all.
You can also check our care guide to learn how to mend a hole in your knit, repair a button, make your own homemade detergent, or learning some natural moth repellent tips.
