Easily Suede by Cashmere?

Untitled #12
We love our cashmere sweaters so! The textile is so luxe, rich and warm. We want to share a very special tip with you. Your cashmere will last longer and look better if you hand wash it rather than bringing to the dry cleaner. Dry cleaning is great at the end of the season to get it ready for storage, but the harsh chemicals are not good for our precious cashmere pieces. Today we are bringing you a step by step tutorial on how to properly care for your cashmere. Enjoy!
Step One
Fill your sink with warm water and Woolite. Turn your sweater inside out and gently submerge it into the soapy water. If it is a dark colored sweater don’t be surprised if some color appears in the water.
*You can also use unscented detergent or baby shampoo.
Step Two
Allow sweater to soak for about five minutes.
Step Three
Drain the water while keeping the sweater in the sink. Then refill the sink with fresh water to remove the soap suds. Repeat as necessary. When the suds are gone drain the water from the sink.
Step Four
Squeeze the sweater gently from top to bottom to remove excess water.
Step Five
Place a clean towel on a flat surface. Lay the sweater on top of the towel and starting form the top rolling the garment into the towel.
Step Six
Unroll towel. Place the damp sweater on a mesh drying rack and allow to dry overnight.
