• Wash by hand in room temperature water with a gentle detergent or cashmere shampoo. Temperature is important since washing in hot water is going to cause shrinking
  • Turn garment inside out and submerge it, working water through the knit in a circular motion
  • Soak the garment for 2 - 5 minutes
  • Avoid using a washing machine, fabric softeners, or any product containing bleach – these will remove the natural oil in the fibers and alter the color you fell in love with
  • Continue to rinse the garment until all soap clears


  • After rinsing, gently roll up in a towel to remove any leftover water and continue to repeat as needed
  • Lay flat on a towel in garment’s natural shape to maintain original fit
  • Do not twist or wring the garment, it can deform your beloved garment
  • Avoid unnecessary exposure to sun if you want to keep the color as long 


  • The best way to maintain its shape and fit is to neatly fold your garment and store it flat
  •  If possible, avoid hanging items or limit hanging time as it affects the fit and shape of the garment
  • Protect your cashmere by sealing it in a breathable bag with zip closure to keep unwanted creatures (aka moths) away
  • Cedar blocks or lavender/rosemary sachets are recommended to help keep moths out of your business


  • Continue hand washing cashmere for best results
  • Washing your garments too regularly can lead to excessive pilling. And please, keep in mind that pilling is natural
  • To remove pills, use a cashmere comb to gently brush the pilling area
  • Use a steamer to remove creasing; avoid ironing or direct heat to the surface
  • Heavier garments (coats and hand knits) might be difficult to hand wash, so dry cleaning becomes an acceptable alternative
