Most of the garments in our collection are machine washable. Having said that, we recommend that you hand-wash all of our pure cashmere garments, as the nature of their super-fine fibers makes them especially vulnerable to heat and friction damage.
Aside from that, there are a handful of other garments in our range that are also hand-wash only, please see below for recommended washing instructions.
Your WoolOvers cashmere garment has been made using the finest cashmere fibers. This luxurious fibre is renowned for its desirable softness and superior warmth. Special care should be taken when laundering your cashmere garments.
1 – Lay garment completely flat, and use a pilling comb to remove the excess bobbles from the garment. Pilling combs should be used very gently as excess combing will damage the fabric.
2 – Fill a sink or small tub with luke warm water.
3 – Add a teaspoon per item of a gentle laundry detergent (we recommend our very own Wool Wash infused with lemon myrtle and tea tree oil) then gently swish your knitwear around in the water, avoiding any harsh scrubbing or wringing actions. Never use biological detergents, as they contain enzymes that break down fibers.
4 – Turn the garment inside out and submerge in the water for five to 10 minutes. Do not soak.
5 – Rinse in cool water, until it runs clear.
6 – Squeeze to remove excess water, but do not wring. Lay flat on a dry towel, roll up and press to remove excess water.
The above wash cycle should be followed for any WoolOvers garment that requires gentle hand wash care.
