6 steps for proper cashmere care

  1. Wash. Run cold water (30°C) into a sink or container and add some gentle laundry detergent (Ph 8+), ideally a special laundry gel for wool.

  2. Soak. Leave the sweater to soak for 30 minutes. Any colouring of the water is completely natural and does not mean your sweater has lost colour. You can also use a washing machine that has a hand-wash setting (at a maximum water temperature of 30°C and at a maximum 30-minute washing cycle).

  3. Rinse. Rinse your sweater under cold running water to remove the detergent.

  4. Dry. Place the sweater on a towel and roll it gently. This will remove excess water. Then lay the sweater out flat on a dry towel and coax it back into its regular shape. Let it dry.

  5. Iron. Cashmere can be ironed at low temperatures without causing any damage. Caution: the logo patch must be ironed over baking paper.

  6. Remove pilling. Although cashmere pills much less then other materials, even cashmere sweaters sometimes need to be finely combed. A cashmere hand brash is suitable for removing all unwanted pilling.
