Hand Wash For Best Results:
In tepid water, combine a small amount mild detergent designed for fine fabrics. Soak for 5 minutes and gently ‘squish’ suds through the fibre (do not rub or stretch). Carefully rinse in tepid clean water. Gently roll the garment in a towel and press to remove excess water (do not wring). Rearrange back into shape and lay flat on a clean towel or airer away from direct sunlight until completely dry.
We only recommend hand washing for best results however if you choose to machine wash, use a delicate cycle (cold or tepid water) in a front loader with the garment turned inside out in a laundry bag. If the garment has buttons, do not turn inside out. If you spin, place a large towel in the machine to act as a buffer and use the shortest and most delicate spin cycle. Rearrange back into shape and lay flat on a clean towel or airer away from direct sunlight until completely dry.
Dry clean to remove stains that hand washing cannot remove.
Ironing & Storage:
If you need to remove wrinkles, use the lowest (coolest) setting on your iron. Fold in a manner to avoid obvious fold lines in centre of garments. Do not use hangers as this may distort the shape. Storing in cotton garment bags is optimal.
Pilling on garments made of natural knit fibres such as Cashmere is normal. It occurs when friction causes excess surface fibres to tangle and form into tiny balls. You can remove pilling carefully by hand, by `snipping’ away the pill ball with fine scissors or using a cashmere comb. After two or three washes the outer fibres will disperse and pilling will reduce. `Cashmere Essentials’ 100% Pure Cashmere should not pill excessively when properly cared for.
