Zadig&Voltaire cashmere can of course be hand-washed. However, we recommend machine-washing 20 degrees celsius. We recommend placing them inside a pillow case that is securely closed, without buttons which could cause damage - if possible individually, or even better, in a washing net or laundry bag. The spin cycle should not exceed 400 spins per minute and in any case it is important to never use softener and not leave cashmere pieces soaking in water.
By using a detergent specific to care for cashmere, machine-washing ensures the product will pill less over time. It is not necessary to wash cashmere each time you wear it and we recommend avoiding wearing several days in a row to allow the material to breathe and recover. Machine-washing means that the excess material gradually escapes, this is natural for cashmere as it is a living material which evolves over time.
At the end of the cycle, the cashmere garment must be immediately removed. Delicately remove water in a terry cloth towel. Dry flat to avoid the fabric losing its shape. It must be air-dried, away from sunlight and sources of direct heat, for example a radiator.
It can be ironed at maximum temperature of 110 degrees celcius while ensuring you do not stretch the material. When our cashmeres are looked after with care, it makes them softer over time and ensures their durability.
