We recommend dry cleaning or hand washing, however, if your machine has a hand wash or delicate cycle, this would also be suitable. Place the garment in a washbag to protect in machine. Hand washing your cashmere will actually make your garment softer over time.
+ Wash in a clean sink ensuring there is no leftover residue from previous products that could harm your cashmere.
+ Use lukewarm water – no hotter than 30°C / 86°F.
+ Use a small amount of gentle detergent, whether it’s one specially-made for cashmere or even a very gentle baby shampoo. Ensure it’s fully dissolved in the water before you begin washing.
+ Don’t rub, wring or twist the fabric while washing, instead just gently squeeze the water through the fibres.
+ When rinsing, use the same temperature water as you used to wash.
+ Roll up in a towel to absorb excess water. Reshape and lay flat to dry away from sunlight.
After cleaning and drying, fold and store flat.
+ Never hang cashmere as it will distort the shape.
+ Iron on the lowest heat setting using a damp cloth between the cashmere and the iron and keeping it moving. Alternatively, use a hand steamer.
+ Moths love cashmere. To store safely, make sure it is totally dry and clean.
+ Fold and place in storage bag provided in a space that has been lined with moth prevention cedar balls, anti-moth liners or strips.
+ All cashmere is prone to pilling. To prevent this, avoid friction with hard objects or coarse clothing. In case of pilling, use a cashmere comb to lightly brush over the item or remove by hand.
