CASHMERE: THE NOBLE FIBER
Cashmere has always been considered one of the world’s most noble fibres; as far back as the Roman Empire, only the most important members of society were permitted to wear it. Along time, cashmere was considered as a prerogative of a small élite group of people.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Cashmere used in making our garments has been dyed in its natural state to establish an even colour throughout the product, as well as ensuring a stronger knit.
Since cashmere is a precious and delicate fibre which requires a little more care and attention, we are glad to give you following advice, with which your garment will last for years:
- Hand wash knits with cold water, using a fine washable soap. Woven garments should be dry-cleaned.
- Gently squeeze the suds through the fabric, taking care not to rub the garment too much as this may cause shrinkage and increase pilling.
- Rinse the garment in cool clean water, squeezing gently without twisting or wringing.
- Ideally the garment should be dried flat on a clean towel.
- When dry, press lightly with a cool iron.
- Treat stains as quickly as possible; rinse immediately with cold water – hot water may set the stain. If the garment gets wet, allow it to dry away from direct heat.
- At season’s end, clean and store garments in a garment bag in a cool, dry place
