Our 4 tips for
washing your cashmere

You are afraid to wash your cashmere sweater? NOTSHY offers 4 tips to discover how to take care of your cashmere sweater like a pro. Say "bye bye" to nasty surprises when it comes out of the machine!

1. How to wash your cashmere sweater in the machine?

To wash your cashmere sweater in the washing machine without any risk of damage, 4 simple steps are needed :

1. Select a cold wool program (or 30° max).
2. Set the spin intensity to minimum (400 rpm max).
3. Place your cashmere in a wash net.
4. Use a special wool detergent.

It's that easy! 

2. How to dry your cashmere ? 

Once washed, dry your sweater flat on a clean cloth, making sure to respect the shape of the clothing. This step allows the fiber to recover and will avoid the chore of ironing.

However, if you want to iron, don't forget to place a damp cloth between your cashmere on the reverse side and your iron on the wool setting. Ideally, you should use a steamer.

3. How often should I wash my cashmere sweater?

Cashmere fiber is precious and delicate, but contrary to popular belief, a good wash will enhance its softness because cashmere loves water and its quality increases with each wash. 

NOTSHY recommends washing your sweater every 3-4 washes. Ideally, you will space out the washes to let the fiber rest and reconstitute the shape of the sweater you love so much.

4. Remove any lint

As high quality as it is, cashmere fiber is a natural material that continues to live after it is woven. An excess of material can then appear on the surface of the textile. Simply use a cashmere comb to remove it, before or after washing.
