Cashmere fibres naturally undergo shedding, which is when fluff builds up on the cashmere. It is caused by wearing and washing, though is not a sign of inferior quality. Pilling can be removed easily by hand, or using a cashmere comb.
When using a cashmere comb, laying out your clothing piece evenly, gently smooth the comb over the affected area to remove pill balls.
Cashmere can be hand-washed or dry-cleaned. Hand washing is the best way to keep cashmere looking new and in top condition.
To keep your cashmere looking pristine, it is important to care for it between washing and wearing. Moths are detrimental to most garments made of natural fibres, causing the fabric to wear. Moths are attracted to natural fibers, especially those that are stained or unclean.
For your cashmere to be free of moths, always store it once it is freshly cleaned so that it is free from perfume and body odour. Breathable zipper cashmere protection bags are perfect for this type of storage, into which you can also add a scented anti-moth drawer sachet to keep moths at bay. When storing your clothing, gently fold them around tissue paper to help prevent creasing.
