How to make your most-loved sweaters last forever!

Sweaters in reusable bags.


To be more sustainable, we ship our items in reusable storage bags which feature a zip closure and breathable vents to keep your sweaters fresh and safe from moths!

We do not recommend hanging your cashmere, as it will likely grow and lose shape.


Pills appear when fibers tangle together in a tiny ball. These can form from rubbing, abrasion or just during normal use.

A simple sweater comb is essential in preserving your favorite sweater. Lightly rub the comb over your sweater to get rid of any unwanted pilling.

One of the simplest ways to minimize environmental impact is to opt for handwashing!

If you choose to hand-wash your wool and cashmere, here are a few easy steps:

1. Fill a basin with lukewarm water with a small amount of gentle, dye-free detergent, such as eco-friendly baby detergent.

2. Submerge your cashmere and gently massage. Then, let it soak for 30 min.

3. Run cool water through the until the water runs clear. No suds.

4. Gently press your cashmere to let out excess water, be careful not to twist or stretch.

5. Lay sweater flat on a dry towel. Roll the towel up like a yoga mat, pressing as you go.

6. Unroll and lay flat to finish drying. NEVER use a dryer!

Always check the care label if you are unsure how to care for your sweater. If in doubt, we always recommend dry cleaning your cashmere and wool sweaters.


These days, in our fast fashion culture, replacement has become all too easy, but taking the time to repair and reuse the clothing we love can have an enormous impact on the environment.
