Cashmere Care

Remember Linus? The little guy in the Snoopy and Peanuts comics with about 5 strands of hair that would stand straight up when he was scared? He had a security blanket he’d drag around with him everywhere–and it wasn’t some deep-rooted psychological issue that made him hang on.

Nope, the kid had class. And a cashmere blankie.

When you’ve got to clean your cashmere sweater, gloves or scarf – don’t dry clean unless it’s stained. The wool of a Kashmir goat will stay softer if you handwash it.

If mom refuses to do it for you, I’ve got the goods on how to go:
Hartford York - Heritage Cashmere Scarf - The Sheffield

Submerge cashmere in the sink with a little light detergent in cold or lukewarm water. Gently squeeze the suds through it. Leave cashmere in the sink for about 10 minutes. [keep it company and croon gently]

Drain the sink and rinse gently squishing until the suds are removed and the water is clear.

Lightly squeeze water out of the cashmere and roll it in a towel to remove the extra moisture and to speed the drying.

Reshape and let dry naturally.

You’re welcome.
