Care

To help you look after your natural wool and cashmere
garments we have put together some care tips.

Hand Washing

1. Hand Washing

Our woollen garments are produced using the highest quality Italian wool, which is sewn and stitched by hand. In order to preserve its softness and the beauty of the colour, we recommend hand washing at 30°C for few minutes using neutral, liquid detergents.

Woollen clothes should not soak in water for long. Before drying, ensure that all detergent is rinsed well under cold water.

2. Machine Washing

Life does not always allow the time to wash by hand. In this case you can use the washing machine with a specific low-temperature (max 30°C), slow-agitation, gentle woollen cycle using neutral detergents.

Turn your item inside out and use liquid detergent instead of powder, as it minimises the abrasion on the fabric’s surface.

3. Drying Wool & Cashmere

After laundering either by hand or machine, you can use a dry cloth to remove excess water. Woollen clothes dry best when positioned horizontally on a flat surface and without direct exposure to sunlight.

At the end of the season or when putting the cardigan, the dress or pair of trousers aside for a younger sibling, you are best advised to keep them, well dried, in a plastic bag in a chest of drawers or a wardrobe.

4. Removing Pilling

Pilling is the formation of fuzzy balls on the surface of a woollen product. It should not be seen as a sign of poor quality fabric: pilling is caused by rubbing during wear or washing when the loose ends of fibres on the surface of the fabric become tangled together in a tiny ball – a pill.

Pilling on woollen clothes generally occurs when first used and washed. To reduce the risk of pilling, always wash as per the guidelines above.

There are small battery-operated devices (known as “pill removers” or “fabric shavers”) that are generally very effective at removing pills without damaging the fabric.
