Cashmere Care

Size Guide

WASH IT

- Wash by hand in room temperature water with a gentle detergent or cashmere shampoo

- Turn garment inside out and submerge it, working water through the knit in a circular motion

- Soak the garment for 2 - 5 minutes (if you see color being released into the water, don’t freak out, we promise this is normal)

- Avoid using a washing machine, fabric softeners, or any product  containing bleach – these will remove the natural oil in the fibers and alter the color you fell in love with

- Continue to rinse the garment until all soap clears

DRY IT

- After rinsing, gently roll up in a towel to remove any leftover H20;  continue to repeat as needed

- Lay flat on a towel in garment’s natural shape to maintain original fit

- Do not twist or wring the garment and avoid unnecessary exposure to sun; this can affect the color of the garment.

STORE IT

- Neatly fold your garment and store it flat; this is the best way to maintain its shape and fit.

- If possible, avoid hanging items or limit hanging time.

- Protect your cashmere by sealing it in a breathable bag with zip closure to keep unwanted creatures (aka moths) away.

- Cedar blocks or lavender/rosemary sachets are recommended to help keep moths out of your business.

- Air out for 24 hours between wearing

LOVE IT (JUST A LITTLE TLC)

- Continue hand washing cashmere for best results

- Washing your garments too regularly can lead to excessive pilling

- To remove pills, use a cashmere comb to gently brush the affected area

- Use a steamer to remove creasing; avoid ironing or direct heat  to the surface

- Heavier garments (coats and hand knits) might be difficult to hand wash, so dry cleaning becomes an acceptable alternative.
