Caring for your cashmere

Some of our scarves are either Hand-Made or of a delicate material and require special care when it comes to cleaning. While we would strongly recommend Dry Cleaning as the preferable method, Hand Washing can be an option if the following rules are adhered to:

* There is no need to wash your new scarf upon delivery.


Pour one capful of hair shampoo or mild detergent such as wool mix into a clean tub, be sure to use COLD water. Soak the cashmere for 5 minutes, then press and squeeze the soapy water through your cashmere. and gently massage. SPECIAL GARMENT CARE: It is best to leave ink printed garments to the professional qualified dry cleaners.


Roll up the cashmere into a ball and squeeze excessive water gently, repeat with clean water until water clear.


Lay your semi-wet cashmere onto a towel and roll it up. Press out as much water as you can. Lay scarf flat on a drying rack. NEVER hang them. Whilst drying keep scarf away from heat and direct sunlight. Sun is the number one enemy of any scarves that have vegetable dyes in the manufacturing process.


Iron press your cashmere with steam inside out on low heat to return the cashmere to its original shape. Tips: It is the best to avoid direct contact of the iron and the cashmere garment by covering the cashmere garment. Use a piece of clean cotton tea towel when pressing the garment.


Always clean your cashmere before storing them away. Moths are especially crazy about dirty natural fibres.

Fold all your clean cashmere and store them in a drawer. It’s always the best to store them with a natural moth repellent; Cedar balls, cedar chips, cedar cloves or sachets made with lavender oil are few of the natural moth repellent that you can use.

When purchase from CASHMERISM online, a protector bag will be offered complimentary to each order so that later on you can store your cashmere in the bag.

Care for your cashmere right, and they will love and care for you forever.


These scarves can be hand-washed gently in lukewarm water with sunlight soap, hand wrung until water is clear and left to hang in a shaded place until dried. Iron on recommended settings.
