How To Care For Cashmere

  1. Always read and follow the garment’s own cashmere care label when washing your cashmere.

  2. We suggest turning it inside-out before washing for extra protection.

  3. When washing by hand, do not rub but instead squeeze the suds gently through the fabric.

  4. Never wring or stretch the fabric in any way, rinse several times in clean lukewarm water until the water runs clear with no trace of detergent.

  5. When washing your cashmere in a machine ensure you use a specialist cashmere or delicates washing liquid. Never wash it at more than 40 degrees, and ideally less, and we suggest avoiding biological detergents. Check the garment’s care label first to ensure that it is suitable for machine washing.

  6. Do not leave your cashmere wet; dry it as soon as soon as possible or odours may develop.

  7. When washed, smooth your cashmere gently back into its original shape. Place it flat on a towel and allow it to dry naturally.

  8. When your cashmere garment is dry it can be gently pressed with a cool iron to remove any creases.
