Caring for your Cashmere

8 May 2024


How to Wash Cashmere

Cashmere has long been known for its softness, warmth, and inherent luxury. Originating from the undercoat of cashmere goats, this exquisite fiber requires meticulous care to maintain its quality and longevity. Understanding how to properly care for cashmere is paramount to preserving its softness to make it a wardrobe statement you can reach for season after season.

While cashmere is undeniably luxurious, it requires gentle care to maintain its integrity. We’ve arranged a short guide to keep your SABA cashmere looking vibrant, and pristine:

How to Care for Cashmere:

  • Hand washing: Hand washing is the preferred method for cleaning cashmere garments. Fill a basin with lukewarm water and add a small amount of mild detergent specifically designed for delicate fabrics.

  • Gently Submerge: Turn your cashmere garment inside out and submerge it in the soapy water. Avoid agitating or wringing the fabric, as this can cause stretching and damage.

  • Soak and Rinse: Allow the garment to soak for approximately 10-15 minutes to loosen any dirt or residue. After soaking, gently rinse the garment under cool water until the water runs clear.

  • Avoid Excess Wringing: To remove excess water, gently press the garment against the side of the basin. Avoid twisting or wringing, as this can distort the shape of the fabric.

  • Drying: Lay the garment flat on a clean, dry towel and gently roll it up to absorb excess water. Reshape the garment to its original dimensions and lay it flat on a dry towel away from direct sunlight or heat sources.

  • Storage: Store cashmere garments folded neatly in a breathable fabric bag or drawer to prevent stretching and maintain their shape. Avoid hanging cashmere items, as this can cause them to lose their shape over time.
