Washing Cashmere Tips
QUICK GUIDES TO RESTORE YOUR CASHMERE
1. WASHING & DRYING
We recommend you hand wash you Mia Fratino knit with an approved detergent. Wash only in cool water as hot water will shrink the yarn. Avoid fabric softeners as these can damage the fibres. Wrap your garment in a towel to remove excess water and dry your garment flat in the shade. Never put it in the tumble dryer. If pressing is required, use a warm iron with a protective cloth.
2. STORE FLAT
Knits should be gently folded and stored flat in a drawer or on a shelf. Never store your Mia Fratino garment or accessories on a hanger. We recommend you store garments with a moth repellant scented bag near to, but not touching, your garment (Sandalwood works well) to avoid any nasties trying to nibble on your natural fibre.
3. SPILLS AND STAINS
Spills happen. Try to treat your garment immediately to prevent staining. Be very careful when spot cleaning as spot rubbing can leave a mark or wear away the fibres. Dab the area with a solvent based stain remover like a dry cleaning fluid or eucalyptus oil, applying small amounts at a time and working inward to avoid spreading. Rinse treated area with cold water then wash as usual.
IMPORTANT - Always do a spot test before attempting to remove a stain.
