How to care

High-quality cashmere grows more beautiful with each wash. Opting for machine washing is preferable over hand washing, especially when dealing with thick and heavy cashmere pieces. Hand washing can lead to the individual stitches becoming saturated with water, resulting in a loss of shape.

When machine washing, choose the cold hand wash or wool wash setting (20 °C / 30 °C). The frequency of laundering your cashmere garment depends on how frequently and extensively you wear it. It’s not necessary to launder it after every use. If you adequately ventilate it and allow it to rest for at least one day before wearing it again, the fabric’s surface will rejuvenate and remain pleasantly soft and smooth.

Depending on your usage, it’s recommended to wash your cashmere item after wearing it for the fourth or fifth time. A small amount of regular wool detergent is all you need. Please refrain from using fabric softeners, as they can disrupt the fabric’s texture and cause misshaping. Kindly avoid subjecting your cashmere knit to dry cleaning processes.

The ideal way to dry your cashmere garment is by laying it flat on an absorbent surface, such as a towel. Ensure that your cashmere piece is in the correct shape, and raise the sleeves to prevent them from becoming loose.

If you happen to have a dryer, tumble your cashmere item on a cold setting for 15 minutes before laying it out to dry. This helps to gently soften the stitches and enhances the definition of the cuffs and patterns.

If you have dried your cashmere without wrinkles, it is usually not necessary to iron it. If the need arises, you can steam your cashmere with a steam iron . Make sure the iron doesn’t directly touch the fabric.
Pass the iron over your cashmere knit while maintaining a safe distance. This process will lift the delicate hairs, reviving the soft and cozy texture of your cashmere while giving it a refreshed appearance.

The occurrence of pilling, often seen in natural cashmere products, is inevitable. It’s not indicative of yarn quality but rather a consequence of the delicate residual fibers becoming loosened. These fibers form tiny nodules through friction, particularly in high-stress areas of the garment. To effectively address this, a specialized cashmere comb is the recommended tool. Gently using the comb helps detangle the fibers. After combing, a thorough shake of the cashmere followed by a wash restores its pristine appearance. It’s important to avoid cashmere razors, as they carry the risk of creating holes in the knit structure.

For proper storage, laying your cashmere knit flat is optimal, ensuring it’s not overly constricted. Hanging the knit on hangers is not advised, as it can lead to loss of shape in the garment components.
