Cashmere wool comes from the soft undercoat of cashmere goats, mainly found in Mongolia. Cashmere is an ultra-soft and delicate fiber that needs extra care to maintain its luxurious feel and appearance. Handle it gently to avoid damage.
• Opt for hand washing when cleaning your cashmere items. Use cold to lukewarm water and baby shampoo or a mild detergent designed for delicate fabrics.
• For stains, spot clean by applying a small amount of detergent directly to the affected area. Gently blot, never rub, to avoid harming the fibers.
• After washing, place your knit between two towels and roll them without twisting to absorb excess water. Lay your cashmere garment flat on a clean towel to absorb extra moisture and let it air dry away from direct sunlight and heat.
• Fold your cashmere items instead of hanging them to prevent stretching. Store them in a cool, dry place, ideally in a breathable fabric bag or drawer, to protect against dust and moth damage.
• Avoid wearing your cashmere with rough or abrasive fabrics to minimize pilling, and use a fabric shaver to carefully remove any pills that may form over time.
• Hang your cashmere garments in a well-ventilated area for a brief period between wears to keep them fresh and odor-free.
