CASHMERE MADE TO LAST
We believe that cashmere is a smart investment. With our care guide we aim to help you take care of your cashmere garments. Since cashmere is one of the most long lasting fibers caring for your cashmere will make it last a long time and hopefully be one of your favorite pieces in your wardrobe. Cashmere is made to last, so please follow our care guide for helping your long lasting cashmere garments.
To look after your cashmere in the best possible way we recommend washing your cashmere by hand. We always recommend to wash your cashmere inside out in cold water and to use a special detergent because regular detergent will be to harsh for the cashmere. Soak your cashmere in cold water and a small amount of soap, then soak in clean water. Repeat the last step until the soap is out of the garment. After washing the garment, gently press out the water whitout twisting and wringing. Cashmere is self-cleaning and we do not recommend washing your garment to often. To remove smell try airing it outside or place it in the bathroom while taking af shower and the steam will clean it.
Gently press out the water of your garment. Place your cashmere on a towel to dry, and then roll the towel to absorb the rest of the water. Roll out the towel and lay the garment flat to dry with the towel underneath. Allow it to air-dry away from the sunlight. Do not tumble dry, unless you want your cashmere to shrink. Also avoid hanging your cashmere to dry on a hanger, as it will stretch.
When storing your cashmere do not hang the garment as it might get out of shape. Store it in your closet folded and try to keep it dust free and away from sunlight. Storing a lavender bag with your cashmere will help it keep extra fresh and keep the moths away.
Pilling is natural when using your cashmere and will happen over time, usually in areas with high frictions. Remove the pilling by hand or use our cashmere comb which gently removes surface pilling. The comb that follows with every purchase of our cashmere sweaters is made to remove the lose fibers so you won’t damage the garment. Never use a scissor or razor as you’ll damage the fibres and make it worse. Peel it regular to make it look new again.
