Prepare a washbasin with lukewarm water around 30 degrees Celsius.
Hot or warm water can make dyes bleed.
Cold water doesn’t remove stains as effectively but it is better for the garments.
Add a small amount of gentle fine washables detergent. You can also use baby shampoo (around 1tsp per 4 liter of water).
Never use fabric softener when washing cashmere.
Swirl your hand in the water for a few seconds to disperse the soap evenly.
If you´re washing more than one garment, don't mix colors in the washbasin.
Add one item into the washbasin and use your hand to swirl it around in the water in a circular motion.
To avoid altering the garment´s shape don’t pull or stretch the fabric.
Don’t rub it against itself (this can cause pilling).
Twirl for 2–5 minutes. It takes about 5 minutes for the 98% of the dirt to come out when hand washing.
To freshen slightly soiled delicates, 2-5 minutes is all you need!
Rinse to remove soap
Drain the water out of the sink and refill with clean water, keeping the garment in the sink. Rinse your cashmere with cool water until the water rinses clear. Avoid rinsing under running water, which can stretch the cashmere.
Gently press water out and place it lengthwise on a clean, dry bath towel.
Roll up the towel and press with your palms to squeeze out excess water.
Do not wring or twist! Repeat with a dry towel if the garment is still very wet.
Remove the cashmere from the towel and smooth it out into its original shape.
Lay the cashmere flat on a dry towel and allow it to air-dry until it is completely dry, or use a drying rack if you have one. Make sure the cashmere lays flat and not hanging.
This specially designed cashmere comb will help you to care for your pure cashmere garments, and remove any naturally occurring pilling. Two fine metal mesh screens on a wood handle gently pick up stray pills while leaving renewed yarns behind.
Contrary to popular belief, pilling on cashmere is not a sign of poor quality or a design fault.
The pilling is natural and can be easily removed by using a cashmere comb. Avoid de-pilling precious cashmere pieces too often as this may result in holes.
We also recommend that you keep your cashmere garments in a dark cool place, laying flat and not hanging.
