More care is needed when wearing a cashmere sweater:
It’s better that the coat lining is smooth when wearing a cashmere sweater inside and don’t install hard objects in the coat pockets, so as to avoid local friction and pilling in the cashmere sweater.
Try to avoid friction with hard objects when wearing it outside.
It’s better not wear the cashmere sweater for too long a time; replace it once every ten days, so as to restore its elasticity.
Attentions should be paid to when washing a cashmere sweater:
Generally it can be dry-cleaned and washed; but cashmere sweaters passing through a special finishing cannot be dry-cleaned:
Washing Method 1: Look over the clothes carefully before washing and check whether there is any greasy dirt. If the answer is yes, graze the greasy dirt with soft cotton dipped with ether; then put it in water with a temperature not higher than 30 degrees Celsius and with a right amount of special wool fabric lotion added in, wash it with hands gently; spread it on a platform covered with a towel after dehydration, settle it to the original shape, dry it in the shade or iron it flat with a steam iron. Avoid hanging and solarization by all means.
Washing Method 2: Add special detergent into water with a temperature of 35 degrees Celsius, mix them evenly and soak the cashmere sweater into it for 5 to 10 minutes; crush and rub the neckband, cuffs and other key dirty places with a high concentration of detergent; pat and rub other places gently (jacquard or multicolored cashmere sweaters are not suitable for soaking). Rinse the sweater in clean water with a temperature of about 30 degrees Celsius; add in appropriate supporting softening agent, which will achieve a better handfeel.
Extrude the water in the cashmere sweater after washing and dehydrate it with a machine after putting it in a string bag. Tile the dehydrated cashmere sweater on a table covered with a towel blanket, settle it to the original size and dry it in a shade; and finally iron it with a seam iron at a intermediate temperature of about 140 degrees Celsius. Keep the iron away from the sweater for about 0.5 to 1cm. Avoid press the iron on the sweater by all means. A wet towel must be put on the sweater if other irons are used.
Notes for Storage:
The cashmere sweater must be washed clean and dried before storing. Fold and put it in a bag; don’t hang it, so as to avoid deformation. Don’t put it together with other types of goods in one bag; store it in a dark, ventilated and dry place; pay attention to moths; and it is strictly prohibited to have mothproofing agent contact with the cashmere sweater directly. Attention should be paid to prevent it from hard light.
