Learn to Wash Cashmere at Home

Hand Washing or Machine Washing Cashmere

Cashmere is one of life's simple luxuries, but washing cashmere at home can seem daunting. And if you're wondering how to clean cashmere, and wash your favorite cashmere robe, scarf, or sweater you're not alone.

Here is what you will need for proper cashmere care: Wool & Cashmere Shampoo (a specially formulated cashmere wash), and Mesh Bag, and if needed for stains: Stain Solution, and Wash & Stain Bar

Can you wash cashmere?

Yes! You can hand wash cashmere, and wash designated machine-washable cashmere in your washing machine. Caring for cashmere starts with pretreating spots and stains with the Wash & Stain Bar, a vegetable-based soap, or The Stain Solution, both nontoxic and allergen-free. Specially formulated to get rid of tough cuff, collar, and underarm marks, these ultimate spot-treating products can be applied directly to stains and susceptible areas.

How To Wash Cashmere

To wash cashmere, set your washing machine to the delicate or woolens cycle and add the  Wool & Cashmere Shampoo, or simply wash it by hand. To wash by hand simply add water to a wash basin or clean sink, pour in two capfuls of our specially formulated cashmere wash the Wool & Cashmere Shampoo, submerge your item and agitate with your fingers. Leave to soak for up to 30 minutes and then rinse thoroughly being sure not to wring the garment. It's best to use cold water when washing cashmere to prevent shrinking (since cashmere can shrink), fading, spotting, and color bleeding. 

Things To Consider

If you choose the washing machine route, you should consider placing your cashmere items in a Mesh Bag to protect them from snagging and tangling. Follow the instructions on the bottle of the Wool & Cashmere Shampoo to know how much product is needed to wash cashmere in your machine. This specially formulated product won't damage or compromise the integrity of the fibers but too much agitation can cause pilling. Lay your cashmere items flat in their natural shape to air dry. Never use the dryer!
