How to Care for Cashmere?
The best way to maintain and protect your cashmere is follow a few easy steps.
Dry cleaning or hand-washing is advised. To wash by hand use Lemonwood Lavender oil infused gentle wash. The essential oils in our wash deter moths and will leave your cashmere soft and fresh. Use a capful per garment of Lemonwood Lavender wash. Wash in cold water. Rinse and squeeze out the excess moisture. Be careful not to wring to protect the cashmere fibres. Lay flat to dry and change the towels to allow air flow under the garment. Once dry fluff with steamer or low temperature iron.
Each cashmere sweater is made of long and short hair fibres. When the short hair fibres meet with friction often balling or pilling occurs. To remedy this, use a Lemonwood cashmere comb. The comb gently removes balls and prevents future pilling.
