Hand Wash For Best Results
Wash and Care Instructions
- We recommend hand washing in cool water using a gentle baby shampoo or a cashmere gentle shampoo
- Wash in cold water, hand washing or a gentle front loader delicate machine wash in cool temperature is better than dry cleaning
- After rinsing in cool water, be sure not to wring out or stretch the cashmere knit. Gently lie wet garment on a towel and roll the towel up to absorb as much moisture as possible. Lie and reshape the cashmere piece on a shady flat surface. Allow plenty of time for your knit to dry naturally
- Never tumble dry as this will shrink your cashmere
- Don't wash after every wear. Air it and spot clean if required between washes. Wash after 3 - 4 wears
- When cashmere is dry, lie on a flat surface to comb using our cashmere comb to gently remove any pilling which can look like tiny balls or fuzz. Gently brush the comb over the surface in one direction to remove the pills
- Moths are attracted to stains and dirty cashmere so for any stubborn stains or marks on your cashmere use a gentle spot cleaner
- If you store your cashmere knit piece for longer periods, ensure the cashmere is freshly hand washed and keep it folded and protected using our Cashmere Essentials bag
Like all good things in life, cashmere improves over time if cared for properly.
Pilling is considered normal in knitwear. It is not considered a fault and is not a sign of poor quality or inferior yarn. It is easily removed with our cashmere comb and once removed does not affect the knit or the yarns performance. Areas prone to pill tend to be where there may be friction or rubbing. This is a quality of all natural fibres. Pilling tends to happen most when cashmere is newly worn. Our cashmere care guide above is an easy way to look after your cashmere knits and ensure your cashmere knits last a lifetime.
