How to wash cashmere? Complete guide

Tips and secrets for washing cashmere perfectly

The cashmere, known for its softness and luxury, is a fine fiber that requires special care when washing. In this article, we will explore the best methods for maintaining the beauty and durability of cashmere. We will find out if you can use the washing machine and provide detailed instructions on how to wash cashmere by hand.

Cashmere and its preciousness

Cashmere, obtained from the processing of the mantle of Capra Hircus, is famous for its lightness and softness. The quality of cashmere processed in Italy stands out for its fine craftsmanship and the careful selection of fibers. This attention to detail helps to create products of the highest quality, which must be treated with care to preserve their beauty over time.

Can cashmere be washed in the washing machine? Here's how to do it

Cashmere can be washed in the washing machine, but it is essential to do so with extreme care and delicacy. Here are some steps to follow:

1. Choice of program: Set your washing machine to a gentle cycle with cold or lukewarm water. Avoid excessively vigorous cycles or high temperatures, to prevent shrinkage of the fibers.

2. Mild detergent: Use a detergent specifically for delicate items, and avoid using fabric softeners, which can damage the fibres.

3. Turn your head over: Turn your cashmere items inside out before putting them in the washing machine. This will protect the outer surface, maintaining the shine and softness of the cashmere.

Here you will find lots of information on how to wash clothes made of this very delicate but very pleasant to wear fabric in the washing machine or by hand.

How to wash cashmere by hand?

Washing cashmere by hand is the most delicate method to ensure its long life. Follow these steps:

1. Pre-treatment of stains: Treat any stains with a mild detergent before submerging the item in water.

2. Cold water: Fill a basin with cold water and add a detergent specifically for cashmere.

3. Dip gently: Place the cashmere in the water, pushing it slowly to allow the detergent to penetrate.

4. Flushing: Rinse the cashmere thoroughly with cold water until it is free of soap residue.

5. Drying: Dry the cashmere by laying it on a flat surface, gently shaping it into its original shape. Avoid direct exposure to the sun, which may fade the colors.

How to remove lint from sweaters?

A common thought leads us to believe that the appearance of lint on shirts is due to aging of the fiber and therefore to its wear caused by time.

But have you ever wondered whether the appearance of the balls that we hate so much on the shirts is actually the cause of our rubbing?

Every day we perform actions that involve the meeting of our forearm with our hips. This continuous "touching", not always as if it were a caress, can lead to the appearance of small balls, which can appear on any garment, including cashmere ones.

We know well that cashmere is a delicate and above all precious fibre, it is therefore unthinkable for us to believe that it can generate lint, and instead today we are denying this rumour.

Let's not kid ourselves, lint is ugly, and even if it isn't due to the garment aging, we don't want to see it on what we wear. For this reason we recommend some tools to remove them quickly:

  1. lint removing machines
  2. razor blades for shaving
  3. by hand, if you really want to have fun.
