Care + Washing


 
 
 

Washing 

We recommend hand washing our cashmere products. It’s preferable to dry cleaning, which uses a lot of harsh chemicals, and will help to prolong the life of your cashmere. 

Less is better when it comes to hand washing. Less soap, less water, less agitation. Wash in a sink in lukewarm water with mild detergent, making sure to rinse the soap out. When finished, squeeze out the excess water, but don’t twist or wring the garment. 

To dry, lay the garment out flat on a towel in its original shape and allow it to dry naturally in sunlight. In you’re in a rush, you can dry it faster by using the delicate spin dry cycle on your washing machine to quickly disperse excess water.

 

 

Pilling

Cashmere is one of the worlds finest fibres. While incredibly soft, it requires a little more love and attention than regular fabrics.

After the first few times wearing your new cashmere garment, small balls or ‘pills’ of loose fibre may appear where the fabric has rubbed together. These are some of the loose fibres that didn’t get washed off during processing. It’s not a sign of inferior quality, it’s an inevitable part of processing such a fine delicate fibre. 

These pills are easily removed by hand or by using a cashmere comb. After the first few washes, these loose fibres should have all disappeared, and your cashmere will only get better with age. 

 

 

Moths

Use cedar balls or lavender pouches to help mask the scent of your cashmere product from moths. If you're putting your cashmere away for a few months, use a sealable bag to store it.
