KNOW MORE ABOUT THE CASHMERE
Light, soft, very comfortable and warm, cashmere is one of the most dreamy materials. The cashmere yarn used by Ateliers de la Maille has its origin in the mountainous regions of Mongolia. Goats with long hairs are the natural producers. Under their thick fleece, a thin layer of down is collected by brushing them. This natural fiber is rare, the way it is knit and processed makes it a luxurious material par excellence.
This fiber can be mixed with other natural materials such as silk, wool or cotton and has an exceptional softness.
The pure cashmere garment is highly sought after for its extreme finesse, and worn on the skin, it provides natural warmth.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR CASHMERE SWEATER
Wear your cashmere garment, because cashmere likes to be washed. Wash by hand on the wrong side, in cold water or in a machine, delicate program or wool. Dry it flat, do not bend it. Iron to soft iron if necessary. Cashmere does not like fabric softeners, steam or dryers that soften it. You can also use a laundry net (
) to wash or store it in your dressing room.
Cashmere is knitted from goat hair, it has a slightly fluffy appearance that can create small pills, which are natural. Do not hesitate to wash your cashmere after two or three uses so that the material covers its softness. On the other hand, you can also use a small cashmere comb.
To wear cashmere is to favor a natural fiber, rare and luxurious.
Cashmere is part of the Nature-to-wear collections of Knitwear since its creation in 1979.
