How to look after your pashmina
Cashmere is a very special material indeed. Originating ONLY from the fine hair of the Capra Hircus goat from the Himalayas, cashmere is brilliantly warm whilst being very fine and delicate. The cashmere products we sell are supplied by our friends who regularly visit the production workshop in Nepal and also regularly send the scarves away for cashmere testing. This is to make sure that the pure cashmere scarves ARE pure cashmere. So rest assured these are excellent quality scarves produced by people who care.
Cashmere scarves can be hand washed or dry-cleaned. We recommend hand washing following these guidelines:
1. Soak garment in lukewarm water using Cashmere shampoo or a similar mild detergent.
2. Squeeze suds gently through the fabric and do not rub, wring or stretch the garment.
3. Rinse thoroughly but carefully in clean lukewarm water.
4. Saturated garments should not be lifted before excess water has been gently squeezed out, as they may stretch.
5. A short, light spin in a washing machine will remove most of the water.
6. Smooth garment back into original shape and place flat on a towel and dry naturally away from direct heat such as radiators or sunlight. Do not tumble dry.
7. When dry press lightly with a cool iron.
We recommend professional dry cleaning for any scarves made from woven cashmere, such as the Angelweave or Wavy Weave Pashminas.
