Cashmere is a natural fibre and there is no need to dry clean it, rub it excessively, wring it or stick it in a tumble dryer. In fact PLEASE don’t.
For the best results and longevity of your treasured garment simply;
wash gently by hand, with warm water using shampoo or an approved wool wash
do not add fabric softener
squidge the wet soapy garment with your fingers, and leave it to soak for a few minutes
rinse with cool clean water
roll in a towel to remove excess water
dry flat in the shade. Make sure it is not stretched out of shape
turn garment inside out and use a warm iron if you deem it necessary
If your washing machine has a wool, silk or delicates cycle, use that. We recommend using our Delicate Cashmere Wash in the powder dispenser of the machine. we do not recommend using fabric softeners. Dry flat.
It is normal for most natural fibres including Merino, lambswool and cashmere to pill, especially in high traffic areas that experience most friction, like under the arms, sleeves or cuff openings.
Pills are formed when the fibres from the yarn are loosened and gather to form tangles or balls on the garment surface. You can pick them off, or give your garment a light comb with a soft brush.
Laundering plays an important role in the care of the garment. Correct washing techniques should be carried out to minimize pilling.
