My tips for you on looking after your cashmere so it lasts a lifetime…
- Use the handwash cycle on your machine to wash your cashmere lay it out to dry flat on a towel. Never wring or twist the garment, simply squeeze it gently instead, to ensure it won’t lose its shape.
- If your machine doesn’t have a handwash or ‘gentle’ cycle, pop your cashmere inside a pillow case and put it on a cold wash
- We all know how much moths love cashmere and in particular any garaments which have moisture in the fibres, so make sure your cashmere is totally dry.
- Then store in our cashmere storage bags https://catherinerobinsoncashmere.com/product/cashmere-storage-bag/
- You may like to add our cedar balls https://catherinerobinsoncashmere.com/product/cedar-wood-balls-by-catherine-robinson/ to your storage bag for a little extra care.
- No matter how good the quality of the cashmere all cashmere is prone to pilling. Our cashmere comb, endorsed by Anna Murphy of The Times, is an excellent tool for removing loose fibres, known as pilling. https://catherinerobinsoncashmere.com/product/cashmere-comb-by-catherine-robinson-as-featured-in-the-times/
