6 KEY RULES TO CARE FOR YOUR CASHMERE
WASH YOUR CASHMERE REGULARLY
The Cashmere likes water! The fibre needs to be moisturised. Regular washing of Cashmere, after it has been worn 2 or 3 times, is therefore important to keep it soft and preserve the fibre in the long term. This helps to prevent the appearance of lint on new items, which need to be freed of excess material following production.
KEEP IT COOL
Always wash your cashmere sweater at low temperature. This is because hot water could cause shrinkage or color bleeding. You should not go higher than 20°C.
Do not put your sweater in the dryer either. Dry your cashmere flat on a towel instead.
Cashmere fiber is natural and alive, and changes with daily wear. Therefore, avoid friction or abrasion as much as possible. When washing your cashmere sweater, instead of rubbing the material, apply pressure and use circular movements. If you opt for a machine wash, place it in a washing net.

LET THE FIBER REST
Just like you, cashmere fiber needs rest. Avoid putting too much strain on your garment by wearing it several days in a row. Using it at intervals will maintain its flexibility and greatly reduce any premature appearance of lint.
DO NOT PUT YOUR JUMPER ON A HANGER
When putting your cashmere sweater away or drying it, it is always best to lay it flat so that it doesn't lose its shape.
PREVENT CASHMERE PILLING
Even a Cashmere of good quality can reject some pilling, also called lint, especially when it is new. This is due to a separation of the fiber which creates a surplus of material. We carefully select grade A fibers (the best quality on the market) which allow to delay the appearance of these pellets.
Wash your sweater regularly following our advice and use a shaver for maintenance whenever pilling occurs.
