Caring for Your Cashmere Throw Blanket

To ensure your cashmere blanket remains as sumptuous as the day you brought it home, it's crucial to follow proper care instructions.

Caring for your cashmere throw blanket is essential to maintaining the unparalleled softness, warmth, and luxurious sheen. Cashmere, a fiber obtained from cashmere goats, is celebrated for its softness, providing a feeling of luxury and comfort unmatched by other materials. The result is a lightweight yet warm blanket that drapes beautifully and feels lush against the skin.

Despite its resilience and warmth, cashmere is a delicate fiber that benefits from careful handling, especially when it comes to cleaning.

Dry Cleaning: The Preferred Choice
For our cashmere blankets, dry cleaning is the only recommended method of washing. This process helps preserve the fiber's integrity, softness, and natural sheen. Dry cleaning uses special chemicals to clean the fabric without the harshness of water and regular detergents, which can damage the cashmere fibers, leading to shrinkage or a change in texture.
Why Not Machine or Hand Wash?
While some cashmere items may tolerate gentle hand washing, our cashmere blankets are crafted with particular attention to their weave and finish, making them more susceptible to damage from water and agitation. Machine washing, even on a delicate cycle, can be too harsh for these luxurious blankets, causing them to lose their softness and potentially warp the weave.
Additional Care Tips
Storage: When not in use, store your cashmere blanket in a cool, dry place. Avoid plastic bags, as they can trap moisture, and opt for a breathable cotton storage bag to protect against dust and moths.
Airing Out: Occasionally air out your cashmere blanket to refresh it. A few hours in a shaded, well-ventilated area can do wonders, but avoid direct sunlight, which can fade the color and damage the fibers.
Pilling: Over time, you may notice small balls of fiber forming on the surface of your blanket. This is natural for cashmere and can be gently removed with a cashmere comb, restoring the smooth finish of your blanket.
