Designed to last.

Amid the surge of fast fashion, cashmere has become an easy target for manufacturers seeking to replicate its softness at lower prices. However, these substitutes fall short of the true quality genuine cashmere holds and are unlikely to maintain the same longevity, quality and comfort. We're proud that our range of expertly spun knitwear, outerwear and accessories celebrates sustainably sourced, quality cashmere; the ultimate investment pieces. Discover how to care for your cashmere to ensure it lasts a lifetime. 

Remove any pilling when it first appears 

Pilling is a common occurrence with natural fibres, where friction from wear and washes can cause small bobbles to develop over time. We recommend checking your cashmere often and in areas that experience more movement; underarms, cuffs and even where your seatbelt sits. Invest in a cashmere comb or battery-operated and specified ‘debobbler’ device, avoiding tape or razors.

Steam your cashmere to refresh after wear 

A quick steam will ease any piece back into shape, relaxing the fibres to restore their natural loft. Keep the iron or steamer at a sensible distance from the fabric, avoiding contact with the hot plate to minimise any damage to the fabric. Pat the jumper back into shape around the neckline and along the shoulder seam to restore a soft and airy texture. 



Handwash each piece  

When it comes to hand washing cashmere, a delicate approach is key to preserving the softness and shape. Begin by choosing a gentle wool shampoo and add to a basin of lukewarm water; submerge the clothing and gently swish around in the water, avoiding any vigorous rubbing. Once cleaned, press out the excess water and lay flat on a clean towel to air-dry in a warm spot away from heat or direct sunlight. To maintain the longevity of your knits, refrain from hanging them on a hanger to dry; wire hangers can distort the fragile fibres, especially when damp.

How to store your knitwear 

To store cashmere effectively, ensure it is clean and completely dry. Gently fold garments away and place them in breathable cotton or canvas bags; utilising an old pillowcase is an easy and effective storage hack to house multiple pieces. Help enhance protection with natural moth repellents like cedar blocks or lavender; we recommend wrapping clothing into a parcel with acid free paper, placing a few lavender sprigs on top before sliding into your chosen storage bag.
