Cashmere and Wool care
Cashmere is a luxurious and delicate natural fiber, known for its softness, warmth and durability. Proper care is essential to maintaining the quality and appearance of cashmere garments. Below is a breakdown of the steps involved in caring for cashmere:
Cashmere should be gently hand-washed or dry-cleaned to avoid shrinkage and felting. Avoid using harsh detergents and bleach. Use a mild detergent specifically designed for delicate fabrics or a cashmere shampoo.
Soak the cashmere in cool water for 10-15 minutes before washing. Gently squeeze the water through the fabric without rubbing or wringing.
Gently wash the cashmere in a basin or sink using a mild detergent or cashmere shampoo. Use cool water and avoid agitation, as this can cause shrinkage and felting.
Rinse the cashmere thoroughly in cool water until all traces of detergent are removed. Gently squeeze the water through the fabric without rubbing or wringing.
Lay the cashmere flat on a clean, dry towel and roll it up to remove excess water. Do not wring or twist the cashmere. Reshape the cashmere garment and lay it flat to dry, away from direct sunlight and heat sources.
Store cashmere in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Avoid hanging cashmere garments, as this can stretch the fibres and cause them to lose their shape. Fold cashmere and store it in a breathable container, such as a cotton bag.
Use a cashmere comb or brush to remove any pills or fuzz that may develop on the surface of the cashmere.
By following these steps, you can ensure that your cashmere garments remain soft, warm, and beautiful for years to come.
