We suggest you refer to the care label of the clothing before washing. Hand washing is recommended to maintain the fibers of the cashmere at its best condition over time, but machine- washing and dry- cleaning is also options. If you decide to hand-wash your clothing follow below steps.
Cashmere Hand Washing Technique:
Cashmere is machine washable but you have to be more careful.
Ironing: We suggest you use steam iron to iron out your cashmere apparel. Make sure the surface of the steam iron is clean and your clothing is dry. Steam the product from the inside out.
Storing: DO NOT HANG your cashmere clothing, it will most likely become misshapen due to the weight of sweater pulling it down. Store your cashmere in a cotton bag with zippers which will allow the cashmere to breathe. Keep cedar chips nearby to prevent moths but keep them away from the material.
If you are putting your cashmere away for the summer, make sure it is clean and keep it in an airtight container with cedar chips, which helps protect the clothing from moths and mustiness.
Piling: Pilling is normal for any natural fiber. Since cashmere fibers are very light and delicate, it will inevitably pill over time. We recommend you to de-pill your cashmere garment before washing it. We recommend that you use a battery-operated de-fuzzer “fabric shaver”. Do not yank pills with your fingers, as this will damage the yarn
Moths: Cashmere can attract moths. Before storing for long periods of time, ensure that the clothing is clean and washed. Store your garment in a cotton bag that closes with zippers, as this will allow it to breathe. We suggest to clean your wardrobe often, and use anti-moth products such as cedar bags (replace them regularly) when storing your garment.
If you discover moths, remove the cashmere and deep clean your wardrobe or cupboard thoroughly. Then freeze the cashmere for a day or overnight as this will kill any moths or moth larvae. You can then defrost and dry-clean your cashmere.
