Expert tips on caring for your investment piece
As cashmere is a natural fibre, there is no need to dry clean it, rub it excessively, write on it or stick it in a tumble dryer so please don’t.
For the best results and longevity of your garment simply;
- Wash gently by hand, with warm water using our cashmere silk wash, 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
- Dry flat in the shade and do not stretch out
- Turn garment inside out and use a warm iron if you need to iron it.
If your washing machine has wool, silk or delicate 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. Our cashmere wash will be back in stock in late February.
It is normal for most natural fibres including Merino, lambswool and cashmere to pill, especially in high traffic areas that experience the 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. To remove pills, you can pick them off, or give the 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.
