To ensure the longevity, softness, and exceptional quality of your cashmere garment, it is crucial to provide it with proper care and maintenance.

By following the recommended care instructions, you can preserve the luxurious feel and quality of your cashmere for years to come. Taking these steps will ensure that your garment retains its softness and shape, and remains a cherished piece in your wardrobe.

AIR CLEANING

Cashmere is known for its unique properties, including self-cleaning fibres that make it resistant to odours and dirt. In fact, the natural structure of cashmere fibres allows them to release dirt and odours when exposed to fresh air. This process, commonly referred to as "air cleaning," is often the most effective and gentle way to clean cashmere. 

By simply hanging your cashmere garment in a well-ventilated area, away from direct sunlight, for a short period of time, you can allow the fibres to breathe and rejuvenate, leaving your cashmere feeling fresh and revitalized. Embracing the self-cleaning nature of cashmere not only helps to preserve its delicate fibres but also reduces the need for frequent washing.

PILLING REMOVAL

To safely remove pilling from your cashmere sweater, you can use a clothing shaver specifically designed for this purpose. Select a clothing shaver that is designed for delicate fabrics.

Make sure your cashmere sweater is clean, it's best to remove any loose fibres or lint before using a clothing shaver. Test the shaver on a small area to ensure it doesn't cause any damage or snag the fabric.

Lay the cashmere sweater on a flat surface, ensuring it is smooth. With the clothing shaver turned on, gently run it over the pilling areas of the sweater in a circular motion. Avoid applying too much pressure to prevent damaging the fabric.

Once you have removed the pills, use a lint roller to gently remove any loose fibres that may remain on the sweater.

Pilling is a common occurrence and typically appears in areas of frequent friction. Regularly maintaining your cashmere sweater by removing pills will help keep it looking fresh and extend its lifespan.

WASHING

We recommend washing your cashmere using the delicate wool cycle in your washing machine, with cold water and a maximum temperature of 30° degrees, you can also wash it by hand in the same conditions.

When washing, use a gentle detergent specifically formulated for wool, like our Cashmere Shampoo. Avoid using hot water, bleach, or fabric softeners, as these can harm the delicate fibres of cashmere. After washing, you should avoid tumble drying and instead, gently lay your cashmere flat on a clean towel away from direct heat sources for drying. 

By adhering to these guidelines, you can ensure that your cashmere retains its softness, durability, and luxurious feel for years to come.

WRINKLE REMOVAL

To remove wrinkles from your cashmere garment, you can either iron or steam it on low heat. Lay a pressing cloth, preferably made of cotton, over the cashmere fabric to protect it. 

Gently pass the iron or steamer over the pressing cloth in smooth motions, focusing on areas with visible wrinkles. Ensure the cashmere is not overheating or getting too damp. 

Once finished, allow the cashmere to air dry by hanging it on a hanger or laying it flat on a towel.

Remember to always use low heat and a pressing cloth to protect the delicate fibres of your cashmere.

MENDING

Included with each cashmere garment is an accompanying thread of the same colour, conveniently attached to the label inside. This thread serves as a handy tool for mending any minor damages or snags that may occur, allowing you to maintain the condition of your cashmere piece. 

To mend a cashmere sweater with a thread, start by selecting a needle suitable for fine knits. Carefully stitch along the damaged area, aligning the edges of the hole or tear. Use small, even stitches to secure the thread and close the gap, ensuring a seamless repair. Take care to knot the thread at the end to secure the repair. 

With this simple method, you can easily mend your cashmere sweater and extend its lifespan, ensuring it remains a beloved part of your wardrobe.

STORING

To properly store your cashmere pieces, begin by ensuring they are clean and dry. Fold the items gently to avoid stretching or misshaping. Avoid hanging cashmere as it can cause stretching. Additionally, it's a good idea to periodically check and refold the items to prevent creasing.

During the summer months, it's important to store cashmere in a cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight. Opt for breathable storage options like cotton or linen dust bags, which allow air circulation and prevent moisture build-up. 

During the winter months, it is best to store the cashmere pieces away from sources of heat. You can use the same guidelines as summer storage.

When storing your cashmere pieces, cedar can be used as a natural method to deter moths and keep your sweaters fresh. You can place cedar blocks, cedar balls, or cedar sachets in the storage area where you keep your cashmere. The scent of cedar acts as a repellent to moths, helping to protect your pieces from damage. However, it's important to note that direct contact between cedar and the delicate material should be avoided - it's best to place the cedar products near, but not directly touching, the cashmere items.
