Product Care

Using your cashmere for the first time... When you first use your new garment you may find small balls of fibre or 'pills' forming on the surface. These are not a fault or indication of inferior quality but are simply loose fibres tangling together where the garment has been rubbing. They can easily be removed by hand or with our cashmere de-pilling comb. Once removed, your garment will actually consolidate and become softer. Handwashing and dry-cleaning cashmere can be hand washed or dry-cleaned. We recommend following these simple guidelines for hand washing and dry cleaning woven items such as scarves or blankets. Rinse the garment in cool clean water, squeezing gently without twisting or wringing. A short light spin in a spin dryer will help remove most of the water. Smooth the garment back into shape, gently coaxing any facings or trims back to the correct size, and dry naturally away from direct heat such as radiators and sunlight. Ideally the garment should be dried flat on a clean towel. When dry, press lightly with a cool iron. Under no circumstances should the garment be tumble-dried. Following these instructions, your garment will preserve its shape and luxurious touch for many years - the hallmarks of the very best cashmere.
