Cashmere care

Cashmere Care.

 

How to care for cashmere? This is the biggest dilemma for those who love to dress in style. Many people believe that cashmere is difficult to care for. Like all beautiful things, even this fiber requires attention and patience.

//First of all, like any other garment (perhaps even more), cashmere needs to be washed.//

It requires a fair amount of moisture. Abundant water purifies the fiber at the first few washes and helps the garment maintain its softness and elasticity. Frequent washes are your cashmere garment’s best friends.

Wash the garment in cold water, at a temperature of no more than 30 °C. If you use the washing machine, opt for the wool or hand wash cycle, and don’t forget to rinse thoroughly. Use a mild neutral detergent.
Don’t wring the garment out once it’s washed and don’t hang it. Lay the garment out on a cotton towel and away from sunlight. Direct sunlight may ruin the color. Never hang it to prevent the garment from losing its shape and wearability.

Suggeriamo di effettuare la stiratura col capo a rovescio, a basse temperature. Le sciarpe possono avere una buona stiratura anche solo con un po’ di vapore a dieci centimetri di distanza. Temperature troppo alte possono rovinare la fibra. Ricorda di riporre il tuo capo in cashmere in ben asciutti in una custodia, magari in cotone, in un luogo fresco e asciutto e con un buon anti-tarme naturale a base di canfora. Le tarme sanno quanto il cashmere è prezioso e…gustoso.
