How To Wash Blended or Mixed Fabrics

When an item contains a blend of durable, everyday fabric (like cotton) and a delicate fabric (like cashmere), figuring out how to wash it can get confusing. Do you wash it the way you’d wash cotton? Or cashmere? The question marks end now! Our simple formula provides all the clarity you need.

YOUR TOOLKIT: Signature Detergent, Delicate Wash, Wool & Cashmere Shampoo

Look Out For The Highest Percentage

If the label indicates that the shirt contains a blend of 70% cotton and 30% acetate, follow our washing instructions for cotton. Simple, right?

Use this product: Signature Detergent

But Watch Out For Silk, Wool & Cashmere

One exception: If an item contains any amount of silk, follow the washing instructions for silk, even if the silk percentage is very small (we’re talking even 1%). For instance, a blouse made of 90% linen and 10% silk should be treated like silk.

Use this product: Delicate Wash

The same rule applies to wool and cashmere: If the item’s label contains any amount of wool or cashmere, wash the item at home the way you would a woolen. Get our wool & cashmere washing how-to here. Example: A pashmina consisting of 20% wool and 80% silk should be treated like wool.

Use this product: Wool & Cashmere Shampoo

And if an item contains both silk and wool, follow the washing instructions for wool, as it is the more delicate fiber.
