How do I wash my cashmere?
We suggest that you wash your item carefully (machine wash or gentle hand wash at 30 degrees, inside out and with non-biological powder or liquid, NO fabric softener), finish with a short spin and allow to dry flat.
Should your garment crease at all or need refreshing, gently steam with your iron over the surface of the fabric.
After laundering, place your cashmere in a breathable bag with an anti-moth sachet if possible.
What is pilling?
Pilling or bobbling is simply caused by a build up of fluff, especially on new knitted garments and particularly in areas of wear. Pilling is the natural shedding of loose fibres and not a sign of poor quality. Although our cashmere tends not to bobble very much at all, we do suggest the use of a cashmere comb before washing and in between washes to keep your cashmere looking as good as new.
How to use a cashmere comb
Simply lay your cashmere flat and run the comb over the surface gently catching and picking up any balls of fibre. After a few washes, your cashmere will cease to pill, as all the loose fibres will have been removed.
