To ensure that your knitwear maintains its life-cycle it is important that you care for it correctly. We recommend you wash your sweater in cold water by hand or on a gentle machine cycle. Ensuring that your sweater is inside out, using mild-mix laundry liquid.
Avoid using fabric softener, as this can encourage fibres to pill.
DryingNatural fibres are at their most delicate when wet. To maintain your garment's shape, do not wring out your sweater as it is drying. For cashmere garments, we recommend that you roll your sweater up on a clean towel to draw the water out. Once rolled out, shape your sweater and lie it out in the shade to dry.
Cashmere is a high quality natural fibre, renowned for its warmth-to-weight ratio and long lifespan. Over time natural fibres can start to pill (form fuzz balls). Fabric pills are a common behaviour of these natural fibres, and prove your sweaters authenticity.
We suggest running a high quality fabric shaver lightly over your sweater to remove any pills. Our shaver of choice is Evercare.
Preventing your sweater from pilling is very difficult, however, you can reduce the amount of pilling by caring for your garment properly.
