Caring for Your Cashmere Gloves, Mittens & Wristwarmers

When it comes to staying warm and cosy you will have a favourite pair of gloves, mittens of wrist warmers that springs to mind.  We frequently wear our gloves and wrist warmers to keep our hands warm and cosy during chilly days.

 

Wearing a Cashmere Gloves, Mittens & Wristwarmers

When it comes to keeping you warm and cosy on the go there is a pair of gloves, fingerless mitts or wristlets to suit everyone.

Due to wear some bobbling, know as pilling, may appear. Any pilling that appears on your gloves can be removed using a cashmere comb and brushing in a singular direction.

 

Washing Cashmere Gloves, Mittens & Wristwarmers

Washing your gloves occasionally will keep them clean and keeping you cosy for longer.

  1. Add some cool water into a basin and add an approved specialist cashmere detergent.
  2. Place your cashmere gloves into the basin to soak in the water detergent mix.
    1. If you are washing your cashmere hat due to a stain, spot treat with pre-wash wool stain soap before placing the item in the basin.
  3. Gently swish the water around with your hands and soak your gloves for up to 5 minutes.
    1. No need to scrub or rub to clean, plus this will damage the cashmere fibres.
  4. Rinse your gloves with clean cool water.
  5. Remove your cashmere gloves and gently squeeze water from each glove by hand. Avoid wringing and twisting your hat to remove water as this will damage the fibres and mis-shape your hat.
  6. To further remove excess moisture from your gloves, wrap in a towel and lightly squeeze again, repeat as necessary to remove most of the retained water.
  7. Lay your gloves out flat to dry naturally on a drying rack. Do not dry your cashmere gloves on a radiator, in direct sunlight or in a tumble dryer.
  8. Once dry, your cashmere gloves are good to go!

 

Storing Cashmere Gloves, Mittens & Wristwarmers

Cashmere gloves, mittens and wrist warmers are easy to store away once washed.  The Gloves can be stacked, folded, or rolled like a Swiss roll with a little tissue paper.  Pop them into a cotton or linen storage bag. The storage bag can be stored in a drawer or on a shelf.  To further protect your cashmere gloves from moths, add a cedar ball or small pouch of lavender in your drawer or on your shelf.
