RECYCLED CASHMERE + RECYCLED WOOL
Step 1: Prep For Washing
Flip the item inside out to halt friction and fading while washing.
Step 2: Hand Wash
Add two capfuls of Wool & Cashmere Shampoo (many detergents can be harsh on your fabrics, but this one is pH-neutral and ultra gentle) to a basin or sink of cool water. Submerge the garment, agitate with your hands, then let it soak for 30 minutes. If you’d rather use the machine, place your item in a protective Mesh Bag and use the following settings: Cold water + woolens or delicate cycle + low tumble.
Step 3: Rinse
Run cool water over the item until it’s no longer soapy. Gently press against your sink to drain excess water—don’t wring or twist.
Step 4: Dry
Lay the garment flat on a drying rack or clean towel. To avoid damage and shrinkage, keep away from direct sunlight and sources of heat such as a radiator. In a rush? Lay your item flat on a towel then roll both upwards, as if you’re rolling a burrito. This will quickly sop up excess water.
Step 5: Remove Wrinkles & Pilling
Ironing can crush or flatten the natural pile of the yarns. Instead, steam to remove creases or give your garment a spritz of Wool & Cashmere Spray. Pilling? For cashmere, glide a Sweater Comb over the area in one direction to remove them; for wool, use the Sweater Stone. Brushing your cashmere or wool between wears with a Cashmere Brush will also release the fabric’s natural oils and keep it looking new.
