It’s easier than you might think.

What is the best way to dry cashmere?To dry cashmere, turn your piece “inside out and lay flat on a clean towel, before easing back into its natural shape,” Hughes advises. While it may be tempting to throw it onto the radiator or into a tumble dryer, these direct heat sources can actually damage and shrink the fibres of your cashmere, so prioritise allowing it to dry naturally where possible.

“Once your cashmere is dry, you can steam lightly with a cool iron or release wrinkles with a laundry spray,” Hughes adds.The Lab Co. signature fabric mistThe Lab Co. signature fabric mistWith a refreshing fusion of non-toxic eucalyptus, orange rind and wild lavender, this vegan laundry mist promises to freshen laundry in between washes.

If you are storing for longer periods of time, keep your piece in an airtight container with cedarwood chips to prevent mustiness and ward off moths,” Hughes says.

No matter how expensive your cashmere piece may be, it will inevitably form pills, which are bobbles on the surface of the fabric that are made when some of the finer fabrics become loose and tangle together.“It’s a natural consequence of wear, not a sign of quality,” Hughes explains. “Simply remove them by hand or by using a cashmere comb, making sure to lay your knit flat and taut as you work through the fibres.”
