Drying your favorite knits flat will prevent them from stretching. Place a towel over a counter or flat surface and then place your favorite knit on top. Carefully roll the towel up (with the garment inside) to absorb excess moisture. Then, unroll the towel and lay your favorite knit in shape on a new, clean towel to air dry.  Dry the garment at room temperature away from direct sunlight or heat.

How to keep your favorite knits fresh

Since wool is self-cleaning, you can just hang or lay your favorite knits on the fresh air from now and then. The air will moisture your favorite knits and make them fluffy again.
