Caring for your cashmere is easier than you think. Garments are made from the finest cashmere fibers, and can last a lifetime. Follow the steps in the video above or in the text below to get our best cashmere care tips. You can either have your cashmere pieces professionally dry cleaned or you can simply hand wash them.
Before You Wash
Piling is natural, but doesn’t have to be permanent. Remove pilling with a piling comb, sweater stone, or other depiller to gently brush these fluffballs away. Pilling is just those tiny tufts of fuzz that crop up on the surface of your garment.
Wash By Hand
With a gentle soap or shampoo, a bowl, and a towel you’re all set. Start with a clean sink or basin, and fill it with lukewarm water. Pour in a gentle shampoo, mild soap or a fine garment detergent.
Suds It Up
Dunk your cashmere garment in the lukewarm soapy water. Gently massage. Create suds with your hands. Now let it soak for 30 mins. After this, take your cashmere piece out of the soapy water and put into another bowl of clean water to “rinse”. Now gently squeeze to remove out the excess water. You’re nearly finished!
Lay Flat To Dry
Lay down flat on a clean, dry, white towel. Place the cashmere in its original shape on the towel. Gently roll up the garment and towel together, pressing to squeeze out any excess water as needed. Unwrap the towel and lay flat to finish drying.
It’s best to store your cashmere in a box with cedar moth balls or chips as opposed to hanging it up. Hanging your cashmere for long periods of time can change its shape. The ideal area for storage should be a cool, dark and dry place, like in a wardrobe, dresser or box.
