How to take care of your Cashmere

Cashmere sweaters are some of our brands statement pieces. We put a lot of love and effort into our designs and products with the intention to deliver the highest quality possible.

These delicate garments, crafted from the softest under-fleece of goats, require a gentle touch to maintain their shape, texture, and enduring appeal.

In our mission to bring slow fashion to everyone, we will explore the essential steps to caring for your cashmere sweaters. Ensuring they remain a cherished part of your wardrobe.

Washing cashmere

Frequency is key
Unlike everyday garments, cashmere sweaters thrive on minimal washing. Frequent cleaning can damage the delicate fibers. Aim for two washes per season at most, prioritizing airing and spot cleaning whenever possible.

Handwashing is ideal
For optimal care, handwashing is highly recommended. Fill a basin with cool water using a detergent specifically formulated for cashmere. Gently swish the sweater for a few minutes, avoiding harsh rubbing or wringing. Rinse thoroughly with cool water and lay flat to dry on a clean towel.

Machine washing with caution
If handwashing isn't archivable, some cashmere sweaters are machine washable. Always check the care label for specific instructions. Use a mesh laundry bag, cold water, and the delicate cycle with low spin. Remove the sweater immediately after washing and lay flat to dry.

Drying and Storage

Never use a dryer
The heat and tumbling action of a dryer can be harmful to cashmere. Instead, lay the sweater flat on a clean towel, away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Reshape the garment gently while it's damp to ensure its original form.

Folding over hanging
Cashmere is prone to stretching, so avoid hanging the sweater for long periods. Instead, fold it neatly and store it in a cool, dry place. Use cedar blocks or lavender sachets to deter moths and add a fresh scent.

Aanvullende tips

Deal with pilling promptly
Cashmere naturally sheds loose fibers, creating small balls
of fluff called pilling. Use a cashmere comb to gently remove them, taking care
not to pull on the fibers.

Air regularly
Fresh air is a natural deodorizer for cashmere. After wearing, air out your
sweater by hanging it outside for a few hours, away from direct sunlight.

Invest in quality
When purchasing cashmere, choose reputable brands known for their
commitment to ethical sourcing and high-quality materials. This ensures your
investment piece will last for years to come.

By following these simple steps, you can ensure your treasured cashmere sweaters remain
soft, luxurious, and a timeless staple in your slow fashion wardrobe. Remember,
caring for your clothes isn't just about maintaining their appearance, it's
about embracing mindful consumption and appreciating the quality and
craftsmanship behind each piece.
