Before attempting to clean wool, we would always recommend checking the garment’s care label to ensure the cleaning method you plan to use will not cause shrinkage. Most wool is washable, with the main exception of structured pieces like suits, jackets and blazers, which are best spot cleaned. When washing, use a gentle detergent that is specially designed for wool, turn inside out and always use a delicate cycle on the machine that has a temperature of 30°C or less. To minimize the risk of shrinkage, it is advised to soak in cold water before you put in the machine. Allow to dry naturally, away from radiators and direct sunlight. To ensure a silky, smooth appearance to your wool garment, iron inside-out on a low temperature setting, ideally when it is still damp.
When it comes to extending the life of your cashmere, proper storage and cleaning is key. Cashmere can be hand washed or cleaned on the gentle wool cycle on your washing machine, using either a special cashmere detergent or baby shampoo. It is worth noting that dry cleaning your cashmere too often can damage and break down the fibers over time. Remove excess water by squeezing it gently, instead of wringing or twisting your garment, as this can cause it to lose its shape. Allow the cashmere to air dry naturally flat, away from direct heat and sunlight. Cashmere should be stored in zip-lock bags, as hangers can stretch the wool. Even high-quality cashmere is prone to pilling, and a cashmere comb can be used to easily remove them.
As cotton can often be prone to shrinking when it is washed and dried, it is recommended to check the individual care label for each piece and follow the instructions carefully. As cotton is prone to shrinkage, it’s best to clean in water that is 30°C or below. Colored cotton garments should be turned inside out before washing. Gently stretch cotton to restore the original shape and air dry naturally.
