The Derek Rose Cashmere Care Guide

We’ve been working with cashmere for some time now and we’re always amazed at how great it is to wear. Incredibly soft, warm and cozy – it ticks all the right boxes for us when it comes to layering during the colder months.

We only use the highest quality yarns which are spun from the longest and finest fibers making our cashmere remarkably long-lasting whilst being lightweight.

Did you know that cashmere is harvested during the shedding season by gently combing the underbelly of the goats? Then the cashmere is graded and sorted ensuring we can source the best quality.

Here are some simple steps to follow to ensure your cashmere garment always looks its best:

Step 1. Washing

Fill your sink with cool water and add the recommended dose of specialised wool/cashmere detergent.

Turn your garment inside out and soak for approx. 20 minutes.

Drain the sink and rinse through with cool water.

Gently press your knit against the sink to remove the excess water, being careful not to wring or twist.

Step 2. Drying

Place your knit onto a clean towel and roll up, gently pressing the excess water out as you go.

Remove from the towel and gently smooth your knit out into its original shape.

Lay flat on a dry towel (or drying rack) and allow to air-dry, away from direct sunlight and sources of heat. 

Step 3. De-Pilling

(Pills are caused by the unavoidable friction of fibers and can be easily removed with a cashmere comb when they build up)

Lay your garment flat and taut and gently comb in one direction. 

Do not use on rib or cable detailing. 

Step 4. Storing  

We advise always folding knitwear and storing it in a drawer to prevent stretching.

Add cedarwood balls to your drawers to prevent moth damage.
