Be gentle & remember the ‘new born baby’ rule - cashmere items will shrink or felt if treated roughly while washing
Always use tepid water
Never wring out or hang cashmere
Don’t use too much soap or use fabric softener
Always clean before you store and store with a sandalwood garment protector
Don’t scrub at spot stains, gently massage in a stain remover
Hand wash your cashmere with an approved delicates detergent.
Turn your knit inside out before washing to avoid fluffing the surface.
Wash only in lukewarm water as hot water will shrink the yarn and set stains.
Avoid fabric softeners as these can damage the fibres.
Don’t rub the fabric against itself, because both can cause pilling.
Do not wring out your sweater – this will stretch it out of shape.
Garments can be washed in a washing machine if you have a wool/hand wash setting and cold-water setting washing machine. Make sure to turn your garment inside out. Set your washing machine on the wool/hand wash cycle and cold water with an approved wool detergent (no longer than 5 minutes agitation). Gently pull the garment back to shape and lay flat in a cool
place, do not dry in direct heat or sunlight. Ensure that their are no other items that can catch on your cashmere.
A tip to help dry your cashmere is to lay it flat on a towel then roll both of them into a tube. Lightly apply pressure to the tube, to allow the towel to absorb any leftover water.
Post-roll, lay your cashmere flat on a smooth flat smooth surface with a towel underneath it to dry completely. If pressing is required, use a warm iron with a protective cloth and press inside out.
All 100% cashmere will pill. Pilling is a natural characteristic of even the finest cashmere which is why we give a free cashmere comb with all our sweaters.
Pilling refers to the little balls that form on a garment where friction occurs. It is an inevitability in well-loved cashmere garments. The occurrence of ‘shedding’ in the first few wears is the natural process of the fibres relaxing and actually makes your garment softer. Once you notice balls of pilling forming, lay your garment over a flat surface (an ironing board works well!) then take your cashmere comb and brush in one direction. Top to bottom works well. Don’t be shy, it won’t hurt the fabric as long as you’re holding the garment firmly on a flat surface.
A lot of people don’t know, but cashmere likes hangers about as much as a cat likes a bath, and for good reason. Hanging your cashmere will stretch it out of shape and you’ll be left with a wonky garment that will no longer sit properly. This is why you should always store your cashmere folded.
For end-of-season storage, use cotton storage bags. We recommend you store garments with a moth repellant scented bag (near to, but not touching, your garment, Sandalwood works well.) This will prevent any nasties trying to nibble on your natural fibre.
NOTE - Always wash your garments before stowing them away at the end of the season. Even if you’ve only lightly worn the garment, any wear residue at all will provide food for moths.
