Our cashmere has not been treated or dyed, but is showing its natural beauty. We have pre-washed it for you. Please know that even though wool is self cleaning, please wash it if you are packing it for storage for longer periods to prevent moths. And when you do pack it away, it is recommendable to use lavender or cedar scented soap.
How to Care for Cashmere
Follow these simple steps to ensure you care for your cashmere products and they will last a lifetime.
- Comb to remove small balls of fibre from the surface.
- Antibacterial – gently machinewash the garment with cashmere shampoo.
- Reshape the garment and allow it to dry naturally.
- Encase with Cedar Wood Balls or Lavender Bags in a drawer or storage box.
After wearing your cashmere for the first few times, you may find small balls of fibre or ‘pills’ forming on the surface. These pills are the result of loose fibres tangling together as areas of your garment rub during wear. A depeeling comb can be used to remove them, or you can gently remove them by hand. Your cashmere will feel even softer as a result.
Cashmere has natural anti-bacterial properties and is easier to wash than you might think. We recommend you gently wash your cashmere knitwear after you have worn it three or four times
Machinewash in lukewarm water (30°),SONETT WOOL&SILK WASH or a similar mild detergent.
Dry your freshly washed garment by smoothing it back into shape and placing it flat on a towel. Allow it to dry naturally away from direct heat, such as radiators or sunlight, and do not tumble dry. Once your garment is dry, press lightly with a cool iron.
CEDAR BALLS provide a natural repellent for moths and insects that could damage your cashmere. Simply place the balls in your drawer or storage box along with your garment. You can purchase CEDAR BALLS online
