Pashmina – the soft gold, the highest grade of Cashmere wool in the world – has a diameter of around 12 to 15 microns and requires special attention due to its delicacy. It could be your best companion for life and be handed down to future generations if you know how to look after it.
Here are some tips to care for your pashmina:
Storing: Since food stains and body oils attract moths, make sure your shawl is clean and well-aired before packing it away. Use an individual storage muslin bag or wrap, to guard it from bugs and dust. Spices like thyme, rosemary, and cloves can also help prevent moths from damaging your shawls.
Airing: Regularly airing your shawl can help get rid of odors such as food, cigarettes, cologne, and pollution. Lay the pashmina flat on a bed or on a clean cloth for a few hours, or hang the shawl outside in the fresh air.
Ironing: When ironing, use very low heat and always remember to place a cotton sheet on top of the pashmina to avoid burning it.
Washing: Pashmina should only be dry cleaned. If your shawl gets wet, make sure to dry it away from the sun by laying it flat or hanging it loosely.
Combing: If you notice some occasional pilling, gently use a sweater comb to brush it away. Apply light pressure while combing, but be careful not to be too rough. Our shawls are made of natural wool that may shed with regular use. By regularly combing your shawl, you can maintain its beauty and even enhance its softness over time.
