Ask the Laundress
I've heard that drycleaning cashmere strips it of its oil and makes it stiff. Is that true?
This is indeed true. We recommend caring for your cashmere at home using our Wool and Cashmere recipe listed below:
- Examine for stains: pretreat soiled areas with Stain Solution or the Wash & Stain Bar. Always treat stains first and presoak for most effective removal.
- Machine wash: Change machine setting to woolens/delicate cycle. Make sure water temperature is cold. Add the appropriate amount of Wool & Cashmere Shampoo to the machine. If possible, place in a Mesh Bag to wash.
-Dry/Finish: Lay item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack or towel. Do make place in the dryer. We like to steam our wool/cashmere for the perfect finish.
