General Care

General care
Always air the garment after wearing, leave for a ‘rest’ period and store flat.
Handwashing
Use cashmere shampoo or a small amount of household soap. Wash in cold to lukewarm water, rinse, carefully press out excess water (or spin on a short program), dry flat and steam iron through a pressing cloth.
Dry cleaning
Use a professional dry cleaning service.
Pilling
Pilling is a natural process which can occur in all natural yarns after a certain period of wear. Pilling is caused by abrasive stress during wear or by static electricity build-up underneath outer garments. The protruding fibre ends become knotted together and form so called ‘pills’ at the places subject to wear. These can either be picked off or ideally shaved away using a wool razor.
