NOTSHY cashmere garments should be machine-washed. Yes, yes, trust us! A machine wash on a wool programme will be much more effective than hand-washing, but please note the following points:
- - Wash your cashmere garment inside out.
- - Do not overload your machine. Half a drum per wash will avoid putting too much pressure on the cashmere fibres.
- - You can place your cashmeres individually in a laundry bag or pillowcase.
- - Select a short-cycle programme and a low temperature (max. 30°C). A lower temperature could be counter-productive, because it would not remove the staining and the detergent would not be effective. Conversely, temperatures above 30°C could ruin your cashmere (protein coagulation and shrinkage of the cashmere).
