Care guide


CASHMERE


Pilling

To keep them from pilling, make sure to hand wash your cashmere garments separately and inside out. If pills have already appeared, don’t try to remove them with your fingers – instead use a dedicated fabric stone, comb or shaver.

Washing and drying

Hand wash your cashmere garments individually in cold water using a mild detergent. Let them soak for a couple of minutes and don’t rub the fabric. To dry, press the water out of the garment and lay it flat on a clean white towel at room temperature, away from direct sunlight. Don’t hang dry cashmere as this might stretch the fabric.

Storing

Don’t store your cashmere garments on a hanger as this might stretch the fabric. Instead, fold and store them on a shelf with a piece of cedarwood nearby to repel moths. Always store your clothes in clean condition.

Stain removal

Spot treat stains on cashmere by first running the stain under a bit of cold water. Then apply some bleach-free stain remover and wash it off with cold water again. Make sure not to rub the stain remover in as this might damage the fabric.


WOOL


Washing and drying

Wool is naturally antibacterial and can be washed very infrequently. Hand wash your wool garments separately in cold water using a mild detergent. Let them soak for a couple of minutes and don’t rub the fabric. To dry, press the water out of the garment and lay it flat on a clean white towel in room temperature, away from direct sunlight. Do not hang dry wool as this might stretch the fabric. And never put it in the dryer.

Storing

Wool knits should never be hung on a hanger as this may cause stretching. Instead, fold and store on a shelf with a piece of cedarwood nearby to repel moths. Wool jackets, trousers and tailoring can be hung on sturdy structured hangers. Always store your clothes in clean condition.

COTTON AND SYNTHETICS


Washing and drying

Most cotton and synthetic garments can be washed in the washing machine – simply follow the instructions on the care label and make sure to turn them inside out. Drying in the dryer is also often ok, though hang drying is a better option for the environment and will also cause fewer wrinkles.

Storing

Cotton and synthetic garments can be hung on a hanger or folded and stored on a shelf (the former is recommended for shirts to avoid wrinkling). Keep a piece of cedarwood nearby to repel moths. Always store your clothes in clean condition.

Stain removal

Spray some bleach-free stain remover directly on the stain and let it soak in, then wash according to the washing instructions on the care label. If the stain is still there after washing, repeat the process. Don’t put the garment in the dryer until the stain is completely gone.
