As surprising as it may seem (as accustomed as we are to not washing wool too often), cashmere loves water. The pilling that appears is very often a sign that the cashmere needs water or a sign of repeated friction, as well as a natural excess of material. That is why we recommend washing your cashmere sweater after wearing it 2 or 3 times to keep it soft and supple.
You can either hand-wash or machine-wash your cashmere, using a cold setting with a dose of a special wool washing liquid and without fabric softener. If you choose to machine-wash it, use a wool setting and slow dry it (max. 500 revs.). For a hand-wash, follow the same instructions as for the machine-wash and knead the pullover for a few minutes without twisting it.
Remember to dry the pullover flat in a dark place and use a soft iron. know that you can remove excess material with a cashmere comb.
