Washing and ironing
- Lemonwood cashmere can be dry cleaned or hand washed.
- To hand wash, place cashmere in lukewarm water and gently wash with hair shampoo. Make sure the shampoo is rinsed out completely. Gently squeeze out excess water, without twisting or wringing the cashmere. Reshape the garment and dry flat on a drying rack or clean towel, away from direct sunlight and heat.
- Do not bleach or tumble dry. Wash coloured garments separately for best results.
- To iron your cashmere, use the wool or cool setting on your iron. With a pressing cloth, iron on the inside/reverse of the fabric.
- Even high quality cashmere garments can pill because of their natural knit fibers.
- To prevent pilling, keep garments clean by gently hand washing, taking care not to twist/wring or rub the cashmere. Avoid wearing bag/purse straps directly on the cashmere, as the friction from the strap may cause pilling.
- To remove pilling, place garment on a flat surface and gently remove pills either by hand or with a pilling comb.
- Ensure cashmere is clean before putting it away in storage, as moths are attracted to body scents and food stains that may be on the garment.
- Fold garments neatly, wrap in tissue paper and place in the Lavender Lemon bag you received your garment in. Fold over the top of the bag and place in storage away from direct light, dust and moisture.
- For added protection, you may also place sachets of lavender or mothballs in your storage container to detract moths.
