LaundryMan’s Guide To Caring For Cashmere

Published on 27th December, 2018


It’s holiday season and definitely that time of the year when revamping your wardrobe with new winter staples is a must. Investing in a cashmere sweater or scarf is a winter essential which holds a special place in everyone’s wardrobe with special emphasis on its endurance. It is without a doubt the season’s warmest garment and can create a great look, which makes cashmere a vital style asset! Additionally, the advantage of purchasing a cashmere garment is its light weighted fabric which makes it a garment that can be worn during other seasons too. Trust us when we say that wearing cashmere is making a statement!

Apart from being a style asset, cashmeres are very delicate as a fabric. To get the maximum wear out of them and keep them in top condition they need proper care.

So here is our guide on how you can make your knits survive the entire season or maybe even longer:

scented candles
The care label may read “dry clean only,” but hand washing a cashmere sweater will actually make it softer over time.
Be sure to use baby shampoo or a mild detergent like Woolite or Essence.
red wine
Press out the excess water, but do not wring the sweater. Instead, lay it flat on a towel and reshape it as it dries.
stained bed sheets
Fold to store.
red wine
To avoid a line running down the middle of the sweater, fold each side of the sweater inward by a third.
stained bed sheets
Never hang a cashmere sweater – it will cause shoulder dimples, and the pull of gravity will distort its overall shape.

Tip: Wet cashmere can take days to dry. To cut the time in half, use a large, preferably electric salad spinner/hand crank spin dryer to spin off excess water; they’re more effective. Then lay flat to dry.
We are sure that if you follow the above-mentioned steps your cashmeres would be in excellent condition throughout the season.
