How to Wash Cashmere Clothing & Accessories
Cashmere is a luxuriously soft material that can last for years with proper care. To make your cashmere garments last it is important to use a gentle wash and to store them properly.
Fill sink with lukewarm water and add a small amount of soap specific for woollens or use gentle baby shampoo. Place item in water and gently squeeze to ensure it is fully saturated with water.
Leave to soak for up to 30 minutes, agitating very gently throughout. Rinse well with clean, lukewarm water to remove any detergent and residue. Avoid wringing or stretching.
To remove excess water, place item into a domestic washing machine and run a gentle spin only cycle.
Once finished washing, lay your cashmere flat on a towel away from direct sunlight and allow them to fully air dry before storing.
Once dry, steam press with a cool iron and a damp cloth.
Do not tumble dry as this will cause shrinkage and felting.
Alternatively, your item can be dry cleaned.
