Wool&Cashmere Care Guide
Since cashmere and wool are the best investment pieces, we take diligence and dedication when creating our collection of sweaters. With a bit of love and care, you can ensure our timeless sweaters will keep you snug and comfy year after year.
We recommend that you handwash our delicate pieces. Use room temperature to cool water and add mild laundry detergent. Natural fibers such as cashmere and wool love water, but soaking is not required, only submerge your sweater for no longer than ten minutes. For stains, rub the area locally with water, or with some detergent if necessary. Rinse by pressing softly without wringing or twisting the sweater.
Do not hang or twist. Simply place your sweater on a flat surface to dry. You can also use a towel to soak up the extra water. You can re-shape your piece while it’s laying flat. Avoid direct sunlight or heat, allow it to dry naturally.
If your sweater does not have any creases, you do not need to iron it. However, if necessary, use a steamer or iron with a tea towel or cotton rag over it to remove creases.
Cashmere and wool sweater should be folded or placed on a shelf. Avoiding hanging to keep its shape. When putting away your piece for a long time, store it in cotton or linen bag to allow air to flow through naturally. Try to store it in a cool, dry place to avoid moths. Moths are also attracted to the oils on our skin, so try to put way your sweaters clean. If necessary, place cedar wood balls or lavender or eucalyptus essential oil in the closet to keep moths away.
Some of our amazingly convenient pieces can be machine washed! Use the delicates cycle, and make sure the water temperature is cool, and the spin setting is on low. Place your sweaters in the washing machine inside out and use mild laundry detergent. Once it’s done, remove the sweaters promptly to avoid creasing, and lay flat to dry.
When natural fibers become loose after some wear, they form little balls or pills on the surface of your sweater. This is totally natural! Gently glide a sweater comb on the surface of your sweater to de-pill. For thicker knit sweaters, and even other fabrics, you can use a sweater stone to de-pill.
