Step 1: Fold after ironing
For best results, fold immediately after ironing.
Step 2: Lay flat
Place the jumper on its front on a flat surface and smooth out any creases. Make sure it lies completely flat.
Step 3: Fold one side
Start by folding one side of the jumper in towards the middle, creating a vertical fold from about the middle of the shoulder. Bring the sleeve over with it too. Then fold the sleeve back down to lie vertically over the folded part of the jumper.
Step 4: Repeat
Repeat this with the other side of the jumper. Fold the side in, and the sleeve down over it.
Step 5: Fold the bottom up
Now, fold the bottom of the jumper and the sleeves to about halfway up the back.
Fold this part over again, up towards the neck and smooth everything down.Turn the jumper over.
Step 6: Handy Hint
Place a sheet of tissue paper on top of more delicate jumpers before folding. This will cushion the folds and ensure that the fabric doesn't crease. Fold as before, bringing the sides in with the sleeves and folding the bottom over twice towards the neck.
