How to wash cashmere

-----------------------
Washing cashmere in the washing machine: Tips

・Water temperature below 30 °C
・Neutral detergent
・Delicate/Dry mode
・Put one item in laundry mesh bag, up to two in the machine
・Dry flat in the shade (do not tumble dry)
・Ironing is also possible.

Water temperature below 30 °C
In general, it is said that the higher the water temperature, the easier it is to remove dirt, but since it can also damage the fibers, the optimum temperature for cashmere is around 20°C, at most 30°C, where the detergent ingredients are most effective.

Neutral detergent
Weak alkalinity has excellent cleaning power, but it also has a greater effect on fibers. For cashmere, use a neutral detergent to minimize damage to the color and texture.

As little friction as possible
Cashmere can tangle due to friction, causing pilling and shrinkage. Use a gentle mode such as "Delicate'' or "Dry'' on your washing machine's menu, place each item in the laundry net one by one, and only put two items at a time in the washing machine.

Dry flat in the shade
Basically, dry flat in the shade. If you hang it to dry on a hanger, it will easily lose its shape due to the weight of moisture. Use a flat drying net or multiple washing rods to allow air and wind to pass through to the back of the clothes. Do not use the dryer! is. It will shrink.

Ironing also possible
While producing steam at medium heat, move the iron gently so that the iron floats slightly. Please do not press it too hard or apply it for a long time.

*Do not use drum-type washing machines (due to high friction)

Message from the creator

I love cashmere and have been buying various items for many years, about 10 years ago I came across Toyoboshi's cashmere. It has a wonderfully soft and smooth texture, I was impressed the moment I picked it up. For some reason, touching it makes me feel calm.

There are other types of soft cashmere, but in my experience, many of them tend to fluff and fray when washed and don't last very long. Toyoboshi's cashmere shows almost no deterioration no matter how many times you wash it at home. Of course, the surface will get a little bristly, but the softness will increase and you will feel like you are "nurturing" cashmere. In addition, it can be easily washed not only by hand but also by machine. (Please refer to the washing tips) Scarfs and stoles cause less friction when worn, so the scarf that I bought 10 years ago and use daily is still looks amazingly beautiful.

Cashmere knitwear from overseas high-end brands are certainly wonderful, but I think the various margins and costs associated with opening stores around the world add a lot to the price (of course, that's business). Toyoboshi's cashmere is of the highest quality and is available at a price range that even ordinary people can afford. I wanted other people to know this quality items, so I purchased Toyoboshi yarn and started making knitwear myself. The knitting was carefully completed by consulting with professional knitters in Japan with skills and a proven track record.
