Caring For Your Cashmere


CASHMERE IS ONE OF THE FINEST NATURAL FIBRES IN THE WORLD AND IS COMBED FROM THE FINEST UNDERCOAT OF THE MONGOLIAN GOAT.  KNITWEAR MADE FROM THIS PRECIOUS AND DELICATE FIBRE IS LUXURIOUS TO WEAR BUT REQUIRES A LITTLE MORE CARE AND ATTENTION THAN OTHER FIBRES.

AFTER WEARING YOUR CASHMERE GARMENT FOR THE FIRST FEW TIMES YOU MAY FIND SMALL BALLS OF FIBRE FORMING ON THE SURFACE.  THESE SMALL BALLS OR 'PILLS' ARE CAUSED BY SOME OF THE LOOSE FIBRE TANGLING TOGETHER AS AREAS OF YOUR GARMENT ARE RUBBED DURING WEAR.  PILLS CAN EASILY REMOVED BY HAND OR BY USING A CASHMERE COMB.

YOU WILL FIND THAT AFTER LAVISHING A LITTLE CARE AND ATTENTION ON YOUR CASHMERE AND REMOVING THE PILLS IN THIS WAY, THE GARMENT WILL ACTUALLY CONSOLIDATE AND SOFTEN WITH HANDLE AND TOUCH. CASHMERE WILL IMPROVE WITH AGE IF CARED FOR CORRECTLY.
