Step 2

Turn your sweater inside out.

Prepare a basin of tepid water plus a generous capful of our specially formulated cashmere wash.

Submerge, swishing gently with your hands before leaving to soak for around 5 to 10 minutes.

Rinse thoroughly using the same method as washing, press out the excess water, but do not wring.

Lay your knit out flat to dry, away from sunlight. Reshape while damp – never hang your cashmere as it will distort the shape and fit.

Step 3

Caring between washing and wearing is also important.

Always store when it’s freshly cleaned, so it’s free from perfume, body oils and deodorant.

Gently fold your cashmere and place in our breathable zipper bag with some of our cedar balls – a natural repellent for bugs and moths.

NEW MACHINE WASHABLE CASHMERE

A selection of our signature cashmere pieces are machine washable, perfect for times when you’re in a hurry.

Check the online features and care tab of the item you’re browsing or the tag within your garment and look for this symbol.   Machine Washable

Other signature cashmere styles maybe suitable for machine wash but we’d always recommend hand washing those garments for the best longevity.

Our Gassato, Featherweight and Superfine Cashmere are unsuitable for machine washing. Their delicate nature means they need the extra care of hand washing, so please follow the steps above when washing those styles.

Follow these instructions to Machine Wash your Signature Cashmere

Follow Step 1 pre wash instructions above. Place your cashmere inside a laundry bag making sure to wash separately or with similar colour knits.

Use a gentle liquid wool detergent, we do not recommend using a fabric conditioner. Select the 30C/86F or cold “delicate wash” cycle. Put it on a short spin and do not tumble dry.

Once the cycle has finished re-shape your garment whilst damp on a flat surface and leave to dry naturally, away from direct heat and sunlight. Never hang your cashmere as it will distort the shape and fit. Follow Step 3 finish instructions above.

NOTE We do not recommend washing your cashmere in a top loading washing machine.

Cashmere FAQ's

IS CASHMERE HARD TO CARE FOR?

No, but cashmere is a luxury fabric that's meant to last, so it should be treated with care. Hand washing is the best way to keep your cashmere looking new. Follow our easy step by step care guide and your cashmere will last for a lifetime.

WHAT IS PILLING?

Pilling is the tiny balls of fluff that build up over time. It’s actually the cashmere fibres naturally shedding, caused by wearing, not washing, and is not a sign of inferior quality. Our cashmere comb is all you need. Simply lay your cashmere flat and run the comb over the surface to refresh its finish. Over time the pilling will reduce and your cashmere will look flawless for longer.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO STORE CASHMERE?

Caring between washing and wearing is also important. Always store when it’s freshly cleaned, so it’s free from perfume, body oils and deodorant. Gently fold your cashmere and place in our breathable zipper bag with some of our cedar balls – a natural repellent for bugs and moths.

CAN I WASH MY CASHMERE IN A WASHING MACHINE?

That depends on the density and weight of your cashmere garment. The quality of our cashmere is always the same, but our signature cashmere pieces are extra hardwearing and so we can guarantee them for machine washing – just look for the icon. Other cashmere styles may be machine washed but we’d always recommend you hand wash for the best longevity. Our Gassato, Featherweight and Superfine Cashmere are especially fine and crafted with intricate techniques; they’re wonderfully soft and light but are just a little too delicate to wash in a machine.
