How to Care for Your Cashmere

  • Dry Cleaning

    Dry cleaning is the best way to deal with stains. It is recommended if the cashmere is woven (like a pashmina) or has details such as leather buttons. Loose knit designs are safer dry cleaned as hand-washing can disturb the knit pattern.

  • Storage

    Moths are much less attracted to clean garments. Therefore, it is essential that you keep your garments clean and when it comes to storage, they are stored away in a breathable zip-up plastic bag in a well ventilated area.

  • Alternative Care

    Cedar wood balls are a good natural alternative to traditional mothballs. Not only do they have a pleasant fragrance, they are effective at repelling moths, mildew and mustiness. We recommend replacing them every 6 to 12 months.

  • Preventing Pilling

    Friction causes tiny balls of fluff to form on new garments. Regular washing helps prevent pilling, you can also de-pill your sweater using a N.Peal cashmere comb. Once done, wash as instructed. Any pilling will diminish if repeated regularly.

  • Washing Cashmere

    We don't recommend washing cashmere in the washing machine, but if you do, ensure that you turn your garment inside-out in a laundry bag. Select a delicate cycle with a temperature of 30°C maximum. If you spin dry your cashmere, opt for the shortest/most delicate spin. Once finished, re-shape the garment whilst damp and dry flat, out of direct sunlight.

  • Improve your washing

    Add one capful of cashmere wash to a bowl of lukewarm water and gently hand wash the garment. Allow to soak for a few minutes before rinsing thoroughly with cool water. Do not wring. Dry flat. Avoid direct sunlight. You can buy our Cashmere Wash here.
