CashmereCashmere is a luxurious fabric that requires extra delicate care. Never place cashmere garments in the washer or dryer but wash them gently by hand in lukewarm water using a very mild detergent or shampoo. Gently work the suds through the fabric and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Don’t wring or twist the material, as it could lose its original shape. When drying cashmere, gently squeeze the excess water out of the garment (again, do not wring or twist). Lay the garment out on a clean towel, adjusting it to its original shape, and roll the towel up like a sausage with the cashmere item in the middle. Apply pressure to the towel, and unroll, laying the item flat again on another clean dry towel to finish air-drying. Never hang your cashmere garment on a hanger, as it will lose its shape. Also be aware that some cashmere items are dry clean only. Check your care label carefully and never attempt to wash a cashmere item that is dry clean only.
