Caring For Your Cashmere

Alashan Cashmere recommends “Le Blanc Silk & Lingerie Wash” as a safe, gentle cold-water cleanser for handwashing your cashmere garments. Follow specific instructions on packaging for washing. Available in six fragrances and fragrance free.


  • Hand washing or dry cleaning is recommended.
  • When hand washing, you should use lukewarm water and a mild soap or shampoo. Gently work the suds into the fabric and rinse thoroughly.
  • When drying the garment, gently squeeze excess water out or lightly roll in a clean towel.
  • Lay your garment flat in its natural shape to dry completely before storing.


  • Clean your sweaters before storing as moths are attracted to natural fibers, especially when soiled.
  • It is best to fold your garment and store on a shelf or in a drawer.


  • Should natural pilling occur, use a Sweater Stone or Sweater Comb.
  • Gently run the stone along the affected areas in one direction. The pumice material will help lift pills occasionally caused by regular wear, often in areas of high friction.
