It’s a holiday season nearby. Time to break out the sweaters! Whether they are the lovely knitted sweaters we pick from our favorite stores or the ugly-granny clothes we love to hate, it is a sweater time.

We all love our knitwear as it keeps us warm on cozy and chilly days, especially during winters. A lot of people fold their sweaters and keep them in drawers and boxes. Although this is not a bad way to store sweaters, it does take up a lot of space.

Hanging is a much better option. Seeing as most sweaters are made of thick materials, hanging allows your clothes to breathe. Still, hanging does have its own problems as, sometimes, it could ruin a sweater, especially when not done right.

They either become loose or just sag. And then, there are those unsightly bumps in the shoulders. The reason why this happens is simple. We do not hang our sweaters in a proper mannery. Most people drape them on hangers, but it is not a good idea.
