Cashmere Care

Special things need special care - so does cashmere. 
With the right care, your new favourite piece will become a companion for life.

Cashmere is one of the most precious and delicate fibres with an incomparably soft and graceful feel. It lies on the body like a second skin and provides a cosy feeling of security. It can be worn at any time of year: warming in winter, cooling in summer, the natural fibre adapts to individual needs. Treat your cashmere pieces with love - they will thank you for it. 

As a natural product, cashmere has its own regeneration process. It does not have to be washed after every wear like a synthetic fibre. It is therefore recommended to air the precious natural wool regularly. The fibres can recover optimally in the fresh air.


Cashmere does not need to be washed after every wear. If possible, air your cashmere products in the fresh air. Before washing, please pay attention to the information on the care label on your product. Pure cashmere from us can be washed cold and inside out on the wool cycle at the lowest spin speed (max. 600 revolutions). Use our special cashmere shampoo. We recommend washing very delicate knits that tend to pull threads in a laundry bag. The easiest way to machine dry cashmere is to use the "Wool Finish". Afterwards, you can lay the items on a towel, turn them over in between and, if necessary, steam them carefully with a steam iron.

Please never place your new favourite jumper in the sun or on a heater to dry, as the strong temperature developments damage the fine natural fibre.


Depending on the yarn, dyeing and use, so-called "pilling" can occur: Especially in the beginning, the fine cashmere fibres are more prone to small knots. These are typical for the material and become significantly less with time. Remove the knots with a cashmere comb or electric razor, depending on the product and your preference. Our knitting experts advise: For coarse knit structures, such as cable knits, we recommend using our cashmere comb. For flat and finer knits, our cashmere razor is a good choice. Make sure you have a flat surface when removing the pilling.


Especially gentle is the horizontal storage in a dust bag. Avoid strong pressure so that the fibres are not compressed during storage. The climate should be cool and dry. As a natural protection against moths, the scent of cedar woods placed in the wardrobe between the garments helps.
