Website only retailers who offer for sale Luella branded garments or accessories below the RRP that we have set will have their account closed. The purpose of this provision is to protect the trade of our Bricks & Mortar stockists, whose overheads are much higher than those of online only retailers.
Online Trading & E-Commerce – All Customers

All Pop Up Shops and Table Top Sellers with whom we agree to trade must obtain our express permission sell Luella in advance of advertising any event and venue where they intend to sell Luella branded garments and accessories. This is to avoid any conflict with current Bricks & Mortar stockists in commercial locations where those stockists have exclusivity. This applies to all one-off events including, but not limited to, Christmas markets, other seasonal fairs and sporting events, including horse trials.
Bricks & Mortar Retailers – Moving Premises
Where your trading address changes, and you wish to continue to sell Luella you must contact us before you move to ensure we can still supply you at your new premises. Please note we cannot guarantee that we will continue to trade with you if we have an existing customer in the area into which you will be moving.

At Luella our Cashmere Blend knitwear is manufactured in Italy with Italian yarn. All of our yarns contain up to 50% cashmere, and are blended with either merino wool, or a blend of merino wool and bamboo. The bamboo blended yarn is manufactured especially for us and is exclusive to Luella in the UK.
To ensure our knitwear has a robustness and longevity that doesn’t always come with 100% cashmere, we add up to 10% synthetic fibre to our yarns, which might be polyamide or the metallic lurex yarn that features in many of our styles. Whatever the blend of the yarn, Luella cashmere blend knitwear always has a luxurious quality and feel.
In order to ensure a perfect wear each time it’s important to take care of your garment.
We recommend washing Luella knitwear by hand using a detergent designed for cashmere, wool or delicate fabrics. Baby shampoo can be a great, gentle alternative. You can also launder your Luella knitwear on a hand wash cycle in the washing machine at no more than 30 degrees. For best results place the knitwear in a laundry net and don’t spin at more than 700rpm. Never wring your cashmere garment – lay it out flat on a towel and gently ease it into shape before rolling it up in the towel to squeeze out any excess water. Then lay it out flat on a drying rack or a clean towel.
Whichever method you choose to wash your cashmere, it’s always a good idea to gently de-pill your garment with a cashmere comb before washing it. Cashmere and wool are always prone to pilling – this is nothing to do with the quality of the product, but more to do with wearing it. And if you love it, you’ll wear it often! Pilling is a natural process caused when the fibres in the yarn rub against each other and form small balls. De-pilling your garment regularly will improve its appearance and maintain its longevity. And to ensure your garment keeps it shape, it’s best to store it folded.
Whether you’ve purchased sequined knitwear or sequined linens or cottons, we advise that they should be washed inside out at no more than 30 degrees. If you’re putting them in the washing machine, we recommend using a laundry net to avoid any inadvertent snagging of the sequins on other items of clothing.
Linens and cottons are natural fibres and can have a tendency to shrink if washed in water that is too hot. We recommend machine washing at no more than 30 degrees with a gentle detergent. If your linen is either dark in colour, or bright and vibrant, a cold wash will ensure the colours don’t fade.
Viscose and rayon are natural fibres and can have a tendency to shrink if washed in water that is too hot. We recommend machine washing at no more than 30 degrees on a hand wash cycle with a gentle detergent. If your garment is delicate turn it inside out and place it in a laundry net.
