Winser London’s Guide to Cashmere Care

The ultimate in soft, downy yarn, cashmere of the highest grade is a well-made investment. Winser’s prestigious pure 2-ply cashmere is the highest quality ‘super-fine’ yarn, hand combed from goats which roam free in Mongolia and knitted with expertise for a luxuriously soft hand-feel.
Cared for well, cashmere maintains its original quality for decades.

How to Wash Cashmere

Dry clean or machine wash inside-out on a cold or 30 degree woollen or delicates cycle, using a small amount of woollen detergent (and no fabric conditioner).

How to Dry Cashmere

Very gently wring out the garment in a towel and dry flat, away from sunlight and direct heat. Avoid hanging the garment up as water will flow downwards and stretch the material.
Press lightly with a steam iron and use a de-pilling comb after each wash.

How to Store Cashmere

To avoid stretching, fold the garment and put it in a drawer. There may be an issue here with regards to moths, which damage cashmere. There are a number of things you can do to avoid this problem.
• Ensure the garment is clean when you put it away
• Store the cashmere with lavender bags and cedar wood or line the drawer with anti-moth paper
• Make sure the drawer or storage area is clean
To get rid of moths, place your cashmere in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer. This will kill them all and won’t have any negative effects on the material. Defrost slowly. Follow these steps, and we guarantee your cashmere will be in the best condition for a long time.
