To keep your cashmere looking brand new, take the time to learn how to care for it correctly. We’ve broken down some of the key steps below to help you care for your cashmere properly.
Pilling- Cashmere is a natural fibre and due to its delicate nature it can be prone to pilling, where small bobbles of fibre appear on the surface of the garment. A cashmere comb can be used to remove the pilling quickly between wears or before washing. Pilling will reduce over the course of a few washes.
Washing - Before washing, make sure to use a mild washing detergent or cashmere shampoo to ensure the detergent is gentle with your lovely cashmere.
Firstly, fill a bowl with lukewarm water and add the detergent. Turn your garment inside out, and gently submerge it in the water. Allow it to soak for 5-10 minutes, and follow by rinsing your cashmere in cold water.
Gently squeeze your cashmere to remove excess water, but do not wring. Lay your cashmere onto a clean, dry towel. Roll your garment in the towel to remove the excess water, pressing down with your palms.
Drying - Unravel the towel and reshape your cashmere before laying flat to dry, away from direct heat.
Storage - Taking care to store your favourite cashmere pieces correctly will help them to look and feel their best. It’s best to avoid hanging your cashmere as this can affect its shape. Instead, we recommend folding your garments, storing in acid-free tissue paper or a moth-proof cloth bag. Alternatively, cedar balls in your drawer are brilliant at keeping those moths away from your favourite cashmere.
