Ask the Laundress
I have a sweater that is 100% cotton with leather trim. If the label says "Dry Clean Only," can I hand wash with Delicate Wash?
We've been very successful with laundering sweaters with leather trim in the past. While leather can sometimes discolor when wet however, we always recommend that you test a small area of the trim prior to laundering.
Make a bath with cool water, wet a small section of the leather and allow it to air dry. If all seems okay, you can then go ahead and launder by hand with our Wool & Cashmere Shampoo.
When hand washing, make a bath of cool water and Wool & Cashmere Shampoo and allow the sweater to soak for 30 minutes. Rinse well under cool water and press the water out, never wring or twist. Lay flat to dry and steam while damp to reduce creasing.
