CASHMERE CARE GUIDE
During the process of making cashmere clothes, our team makes a great effort and carefully works at every stage. However, you should follow certain rules of care in order to maintain a great look.
Our customers often ask us: 'How do I wash cashmere? and 'How do you store cashmere?'. Our experts have collected the best advice so that you do not make a mistake.
Cashmere is a precious material that we take from the fluffy undercoat of a cashmere goat. Then, during processing, thin hairs are separated from coarse ones and only the softest fibers remain, which are so pleasant to the body.
- Considering that our sweaters are made of thin fibers, we recommend using a professional dry cleaner or hand washing.
- If you chose the last option, then you should follow these steps: turn the item out, use warm water (no more than 30 degrees), use a special shampoo for cashmere and wool. Moreover, you should soak the garments for 5 minutes to remove the dirt before rinsing.
- Do not change the water temperature throughout the entire process.
- Remove excess water by placing between clean towels. Never wring your garments!
- The ideal option is to wash cashmere items once a season. If you do this more often, then there is a risk of fiber damage.
- While the garment is damp, smooth out any unevenness and place it on a firm, level surface to dry further. During the process, avoid direct heat flow such as open flames or direct sunlight. Do not tumble dry your cashmere sweater
- You can iron the sweater using a low temperature to avoid burning the fabric.
- If you have clothes that contain cashmere, we recommend you purchase re-sealable bag for neat storage. In addition, you can use insect repellent sprays like rosemary, thyme, dried orange.
- Remember, you should never hang cashmere clothes, fold them to avoid deformation.
To help avoid pilling several things can be done:
- Allow the garment to rest between wears
- Wash and press as per the care instruction, inside out to avoid friction with other fabrics
- Brush down to remove unwanted debris
- Wash with specific detergents designed for cashmere
- The garment may also be dry cleaned by a specialist dry cleaner
