Soak garment in lukewarm water using mild detergent (I use Baby Shampoo). Squeeze suds gently through fabric - do not rub, wring or stretch the garment. Rinse thoroughly, but carefully, in clean lukewarm water.
Saturated garments should not be lifted before excess water has been gently squeezed out, as they may stretch. Smooth the garment back into its original shape & place flat on a towel; dry naturally away from direct heat such as radiators or sunlight. Never tumble dry. When dry, press slightly with a cool iron.
Never put clothes away dirty; this attracts moths and makes it more likely for the female moths to find the perfect site for their eggs to hatch. Wash your cashmere with our special cashmere shampoo, and if you are thinking of storing your cashmere for the summer then do so in one of our zip storage bags in a clean cupboard until the next season. Loop cedar balls or dry lavender around your hangers / closet to keep the moths at bay.
Cashmere Care Guide
Cashmere is one of the finest natural fibres in the world and requires a little more care and attention than products made from coarser wools. After wearing your new cashmere garment for the first few times you might find small balls of fibres forming on the surface. These small balls or “pills” are caused by some of the loose fibre tangling together as areas of your garment are rubbed during wear.
Pills can be easily removed by hand or by using special comb. You will find that, removing the pills in this way, the garment will actually consolidate and soften further. If cared for properly, your cashmere will maintain its original sumptuous quality.
