If the cashmere product is cleaned properly, it softens even further.
The use of professional dry cleaning is recommended in order to keep the garment in the right shape and to guarantee colour fastness. However, if you prefer to clean your cashmere garments at home, please hand-wash in accordance with the following instructions:
- Gently place your garment in 30C lukewarm water, preferably with cashmere detergent, without rubbing or wringing.
- Do not use washing powder or bleach when washing cashmere products.
- Rinse thoroughly with clean water until the cashmere washing detergent is cleared from the garment.
- Gently grasp the garment in a dry cotton towel in order to release the excess water. Do not wring out.
- Lay to dry on a flat surface without stretching, at room temperature, away from direct heat and sunlight.
- In necessary, press using a cool iron with a damp cloth.
We recommend storing your garment flat in a bag with cedar balls to keep the cashmere beautifully soft and to deter moths.
- Perfumes with strong colour should not be used on the cashmere garments from a close distance.
- After the first few times of wearing cashmere products, especially under other clothes, small balls (pilling) may appear on the surface of the garments. Pilling is not a quality defect, but it is the natural characteristic of cashmere (so you can be sure it is cashmere). You only need to clean the garment and remove pilling by gently brushing the surface with a cashmere comb once in a while for the first few wears after which you will soon find that the pilling becomes less frequent before disappearing completely. It is easiest to remove the pilling when the garment is still wet.
- Cashmere garments will age inversely with time if you take care of it, just the way it caresses you even gentler with time.
