You can easily wash your cashmere in a washing machine. Choose a short laundry program and make sure that you do not wash it in water that is warmer than 30 degrees and do not centrifuge the garment. Use a wool detergent and do not use fabric softener. You can also wash the garment by hand. Just make sure that you do not wash or rinse the garment under running water, just soak it in cold water and use a wool detergent. Do not wring or stretch the garment.
Flat dry your cashmere garment after washing. The easiest way to flat dry it is to lay it on a flat surface with a towel underneath. Make sure that you do not stretch the sweater. Remember to never tumble dry or hang dry your cashmere garments.
It is perfectly fine to iron your cashmere garments. Just make sure to have the right temperature (max 150 °) when ironing. It is also fine to steam the cashmere garment with a steamer.
Do not hang your cashmere garments up for storage. Fold them and store them in a drawer or a storage box. If you are having troubles with moths, put a few cedar balls in the drawer or box and the moths will stay away.
Pilling is normal and is most often seen in areas exposed to friction. You can easily remove them with a wool comb or by hand. After washing and using the sweater a few times the pilling tends to stop.
