How To Hang Your Sweaters Like A Boss!

We all know that you're not supposed to hang your sweaters on a hanger the way you would hang a blouse, or a jacket.  Doing so causes the fabric to stretch and creates those weird little stretched out bumps in the shoulder area - no bueno!!  

Believe it or not, there is an ingenious way that I learned to hang your cozy knits minus the lumpies.  There is absolutely no reason that your sweaters need to be banished to live in sweater boxes, or stuffed in drawers anymore!

Read on to find out how.....


Voil√†! So easy peasy right?  Here's a few extra tips:


  • This works for sweaters made from any fabric, even delicates such as cashmere.  Just double check to make sure there's no hidden wrinkles when folding your garment in half.

  • The non slip hangers {with the velvety texture} are usually the best for this but regular ol' plastic ones will do the job just fine!  My fave is the 'Huggable Hangers' from The Container Store {view here}, but I have also found other varieties at Marshalls that are identical for half the price! 

  • If you have an oversized or boxy sweater, the waist part of the sweater may not fit properly when threading it back through the other side.  That's totally ok!  Just let the waist drape over the hanger, and still tuck the sleeve through to prevent the garment from falling off.
