HOW TO WASH YOUR CASHMERE:
DESIGNER MADELEINE THOMPSON'S 5 EASY TIPS
  1. Always make sure your cashmere is turned inside out and submerge it in a bowl of tepid water with a good cashmere shampoo (PH neutral)
  2. Make sure that you don't rub – instead, blot any stains and never use hot water
  3. To rinse, use the same method as washing, pressing out the excess water
  4. Lay your knit out flat to dry on a towel and keep away from heat and sunlight
  5. To get rid of wrinkles, you can steam your cashmere once it’s dry, then fold to store
