Ask the Laundress
I LOVE cashmere and stopped taking them to the dry cleaners years ago. Is it true that if a garment's label says "Dry Clean Only" vs. "Dry Cleaning Recommended" that you have to send it to the dry cleaners?
A lot of our "dry clean only" items are actually washable. We wash woolens and cashmere all the time! However, it is important to follow our washing instructions in order to preserve the quality of the garment.
You can either hand was or machine wash your items with our Wool & Cashmere Shampoo. Make sure you put it on the delicate or woolen cycle—or hand wash cycle, if you don’t have woolen or delicate. The water must be cold, or risk shrinkage.
You can wash sweaters together only if they are the same color. Blacks with blacks; reds with reds; pinks with pinks, etc. We never suggest washing different colors together, as they will bleed onto one another. If you do wish to wash a few together, separate them in different Mesh Bags. This helps to prevent any pulling or stretching.
For best results, we suggest steaming your sweaters while damp. This works best to remove wrinkles.
