Cashmere & Lambswool are gentle natural fibres and take a little more caring for than alternative synthetic fabrics. Care well for your pieces and they will last a lifetime, perfect for your sustainable, capsule wardrobe.
Take a look at our care guide below to ensure you are looking after your natural garments in the best way, it's nice and simple and not much more work than a load of washing! Caring as below will help to maintain the quality, size and hand-feel of your garment or accessory.
With natural garments, it's recommended that you store them folded in a cupboard or drawer as hanging them could stretch the garment with gravity's pull.
Please note, both cashmere & lambswool pieces are hand-wash only; I will go into detail below on the best method when washing.
Wash Care Guide
When washing cashmere, we recommend using a specialist cashmere shampoo or a non-biological, neutral soap.
When washing lambswool, we recommend using a gentle wool shampoo, or baby shampoo.
Only wash your garment when you feel like it's ready to be washed. The natural fibres allow for a much longer wear than synthetic fabrics before washing as they naturally repel odours and bacteria.
Wash in a bathtub or sink using cold or lukewarm water and the soap/shampoo best suited for the material. Gently squeeze the excess water out once washed.
To dry your garment, lay flat on a towel to avoid any changes to the shape.
For lambswool pieces, once dry apply a gentle iron with a soft steam setting.
For cashmere pieces, once dry apply a gentle iron on a cold setting.
Please do not tumble dry your cashmere or lambswool.
Your garment will look as good as new following the steps above. To remove any bobbles, you can use a wool shaver or a razor with no cream/balm, gently removing bobbles from the garment.
