Washing your Cashmere and Yak Knitwear
Remove any pilling before washing (see below). Misty Cashmere knitwear can be washed by hand or a washing machine can be used if a 'wool' wash cycle is selected with a low spin speed. Only use a liquid detergent recommended for Wool and Silk. Do not bleach. Do not use fabric conditioner. Reshape whilst damp and dry flat out of direct sunlight. If necessary cool iron on reverse. Washing will make your cashmere or yak even softer! Garments can also be dry cleaned.
What if my Knitwear starts to Pill
The natural characteristics of cashmere and yak may cause your garment to pill (produce small bobbles). A cashmere comb (available on our website) or pumice stone can be used to remove any surface pilling and washing will help remove the residual pilling.
