Cashmere can last for years if well looked after. It is a fragile fibre but it can be easily revived and refreshed by washing.
Machine wash at 30 degrees using the wool cycle. Only use a detergent that is specially designed for machine washing woollens. The wool cycle gently rocks the washing machine drum rather than rotating as wool becomes felted with friction and not temperature. Use fabric softeners very sparingly (we use one-third of the recommended measure) to add extra softness. Too much fabric softener can deaden the texture of your cashmere. Dry flat, stretching out the fabric gently in all directions.
Cashmere can be dry cleaned but the process may flatten cashmere fibres.
Hand wash in lukewarm water using wool soap. Plenty of bubbles will help revive your cashmere. Gently squeeze out water but never wring dry. Machine spin to remove excess water. Carefully roll up the garment in a large towel to squeeze out more water. Dry flat, stretching out the fabric gently in all directions. Reposition several times during drying to prevent creases. Curled edges can be pressed flat using a gentle iron setting with a thin, damp cotton or muslin cloth as protection.
Bobbles can appear on most cashmere items, often where there is friction, but will decrease over time. The best time to remove bobbles is when the item is still damp after washing. Pick them off with your thumb laid flat against your forefinger. Alternatively, use a cashmere comb when the item is dry.
