Caring for Your Sweaters

Special care for precious things
Our suggestions for a proper care of your cashmere garments

Cashmere is a natural fiber which loves water and is renewed with each wash, whether by hand or by machine. In the latter case, however, we recommend using a gentile wash cycle with a spin speed of no more than 600 rpm. For proper care, it is sufficient to follow only a few precautions, such as the use of cold water and delicate detergents. We discourage the use of fabric softener.


Cashmere knitwear does not require soaking. To wash your garment, dip it in cold water—best if turned inside out—using only a small amount of delicate detergent, and proceed to massage lightly. In case of stains, gently rub the area directly with detergent. Rinse by pressing softly without wringing or twisting. Excess water can be removed by rolling the garment in a towel on a flat surface and pressing gently. This will allow your sweater to dry more quickly.

In order to maintain its original shape, your cashmere garment should be laid flat to dry, avoiding direct sunlight or other heat sources. Turn your sweater over at least once, allowing it to dry well on both sides, making sure that the sleeves are not dangling from the surface.

If the garment has been properly washed and dried and does not have any creases, it can be worn without ironing. Should it be necessary however, steam using a hand-held steamer from a slight distance or iron inside-out, placing a cotton rag between the iron and the garment.
