100% Cashmere DK is premium quality, pure, millspun Mongolian Cashmere. It is a plied, velvety and smooth, uniform yarn dyed in a range of classic and deep solid colours. Please use woolwash No Rinse or a similar washing medium.

When buying cashmere, avoid skeins that look very fuzzy or have a halo, as they will pill more quickly. A small amount of pilling is normal for cashmere garments, as well as for Angora, Merino, some types of Silk and Quivit articles. Just gently brush your cashmere garment when it is completely dry with a soft hair-brush (or use a lint remover) on both sides (right and reverse) to remove pilling lint; or remove it by hand.

Garment Care: gentle hand wash in lukewarm water with Eucalyptus wash or washing medium such as Dawn. Use the same temperature of water for both wash and rinse to avoid "shoking" the fiber. Do not twist or pull the garment, but gently squeeze it to remove excess water. Lay flat to dry, avoiding exposure to direct sunlight pulling a garment into correct shape.


Note: this item was manufactured by Lotus Ltd. for Makalu Yarns, labeled by Makalu Yarns.
