RESPONSIBLY-SOURCED CASHMERE

Lemonwood was founded by Christine Peters to provide women with the opportunity to experience beautiful, luxurious, quality cashmere garments.

Lemonwood cashmere is thoughtfully designed in Oakville, Canada and manufactured in Nepal, Shanghai, and India.

Over the years, Christine’s extensive sourcing and product development background has allowed her to work with small factories around the world. She has carefully chosen factories which help empower women, are run by women, and/or are socially responsible to the environment and their community.

Lemonwood cashmere is manufactured by socially and environmentally responsible manufacturers. Each maker must provide a certificate, proving they are socially responsible, by not hiring under-aged workers and employing workers from impoverished backgrounds. They also must prove that they use sustainable materials that are not harmful to the environment, the health of the individual making the garments, or the consumer purchasing the garments. The cashmere wool used in Lemonwood garments are dyed with non-toxic dyes.

CASHMERE CARE

The best way to maintain and protect your cashmere is follow a few easy steps.  

Washing:

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.

Combing: 

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.
