Luxurious comfort: our guide to caring for cashmere and wool

Cashmere is not only a luxurious material, but also a symbol of elegance and quality. But like any high-quality piece, cashmere requires a certain amount of attention and care to preserve its softness and beauty. In this guide, we'll take an in-depth look at cashmere care and give you tips on how to keep your beloved cashmere products in top shape. Don't worry, with a few tips, caring for cashmere and wool is child's play...

Why are cashmere and wool so special?

Before we look at care, it's worth taking a look at the unique properties of cashmere and wool.

Cashmere wool comes from the undercoat of the cashmere goat and is characterised by its incredible softness, lightness and warmth.

Wool is a natural fibre obtained from sheep and other animals such as Angora goats and alpacas. Wool has excellent insulation and moisture regulation properties and is above all sustainable.

Basic care tips for cashmere and wool:

1.Hand washing: Hand washing is the gentlest method, but also the most time-consuming way to clean cashmere and wool. Use cold or lukewarm water and a mild detergent, we recommend Amytis from Speick. Carefully immerse the garment and gently knead it to remove dirt and impurities. Then rinse thoroughly and do not wring to avoid damaging the fibres.

2.Machine wash: Don't be afraid of machine washing - it's guaranteed to work. Use a gentle programme for delicate clothing (wool programme). To protect the cashmere and wool from rubbing, do not overload the machine and only wash two or three items in one cycle. Use a mild care product, our recommendation: Amytis from Speick, and cold water. Avoid using fabric softener or bleach as these can damage the fibres. Very important! Only spin your cashmere gently and only at a maximum

3.Drying: Never dry cashmere and wool in the tumble dryer, as the heat can cause the fibres to become matted and shrink. Instead, lay the garment flat on a towel and gently squeeze it to remove excess water. Then leave it to air dry, ideally lying flat, to retain its shape.

4.Ironing and steaming: Iron cashmere and wool only if necessary and use a low temperature setting. Place a damp cloth between the iron and the garment to avoid direct contact with the heat. Alternatively, you can refresh the garment with a steam iron to remove creases and refresh the fibres.


Proper care of natural fibres is crucial to ensure the longevity and beauty of your favourite pieces. By following these basic care tips and treating your cashmere products with love and care, you can ensure that they will accompany you with their luxurious comfort for many years to come.
