Drying cashmereNever tumble dry cashmere, let it dry naturally. The best method is to place it flat on a clean towel in a well ventilated room, away from direct heat or sunlight. Hanging on a hanger while wet will cause your cashmere to become misshaped.
De-pilling cashmereFriction of wear can subject your cashmere to small balls of fuzz. Restore to its original silk soft state by using a de-pilling comb to lightly brush the affected areas in the direction of the knit, or de-pill by hand.
Storing cashmereDon’t gift your knitwear to the moths. Protect your garments by storing in a breathable zip-up garment bag between wears and pack your knits in airtight plastic bags between seasons.
Washing cashmereSome cashmere items are dry clean only, but in most cases you can wash your knits at home by hand. For a super soft finish, use non-biological liquid detergent that’s suitable for wool or silk. Always wash very carefully in cool water.
Shaping cashmereReshape while damp (making sure buttons are done up and sleeves and hems are straight). Never wring water out of your cashmere as it misshapes the delicate fibres. Instead gently squeeze each section.
