6 key rules for the maintenance of your cashmere
Wash your cashmere regularly
Cashmere loves water! Fiber needs hydration. The regular washing of cashmere, after being carried 2 or 3 times, is therefore important to keep its sweetness and preserve the fiber in the long term. This helps in particular to avoid the appearance of stuffed animals on new items, which need to free themselves from a surplus of material following production.
Preserve it from heat
Always washing her cashmere sweater at low temperature. Indeed, hot water could cause shrinking or color disgorctions. So do not exceed 20 ° C.
Also, don't put your sweater on the dryer. Rather dry your cashmere flat on a towel.
The cashmere fiber being natural and lively, it evolves according to daily friction. So avoid friction as much as possible. When washing your cashmere sweater, do not rub the material but rather exert circular pressures and movements. If you choose machine washing, slide your room in a washing net.

Let the fiber rest
Like you, cashmere fiber needs to rest. Avoid soliciting your room by carrying it for several consecutive days. By spacing its use, you will preserve its flexibility and limit the development of stuffed animals prematurely.
Do not put your sweater on a hanger
To store his cashmere sweater or dry it, it is always recommended to put it flat so that he does not deform.
Avoid bouloches on your cashmere
Even a cashmere Good quality can reject a few bouloches, also called plush, especially when it is new. These are due to a separation of the fiber which therefore creates a surplus of material. We carefully select grade A fibers (the best quality on the market) which allow us to delay the appearance of these bouloches.
So regularly wash your sweater by following our advice, and use a razor to maintain your sweater in the event of an appearance of bouloches.
