Cashmere is considered the world’s warmest and softest fiber. Cashmere fiber is much like sheep’s wool, but warmer and not itchy. It is lacking in lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic and also allows it to be processed without the need for high temperatures or harsh chemicals in washing. All these qualities make cashmere a supreme product for babies.
The first time you can experience a bit of piling, it does not mean that it is poor quality, it is a completely natural process – because the wool gets rid of excess fiber. These fibers accumulate into piles that can be easily removed with a pilling comb or a fabric shaver.
How to wash cashmere?
To wash cashmere, set your washing machine to the delicate or woolens cycle and add the Wool & Cashmere Shampoo, or simply wash it by hand. To wash by hand simply add water to a wash basin or clean sink, pour in two capfuls of Wool & Cashmere Shampoo, submerge your item and agitate with your fingers. Leave to soak for up to 30 minutes and then rinse thoroughly being sure not to wring the garment. It’s best to use cold water when washing cashmere to prevent shrinking, fading, spotting, and color bleeding.
