Cashmere Takes a Bath

I've found the key to preserving sweaters is to wash them as little as possible. If you wear something underneath, it helps to extend the time between washings. When you must wash them, use cold water and very little detergent. Never dry them in the dryer; lay them out flat to air dry.


  1. But you have to be a clean person . . no spilling on yourself!

    I am impressed with your sweaters- you have a lot!

  2. I agree - I don't wash my sweaters often. I also roll them up in a towel before leaying them on a drying rack - helps them dry faster.

    I just posted about starting to wash and put away my wool sweaters. Hooray!! Spring is coming!


I know word verification is a pain, but I'm getting a lot of spam comments, more than I can keep up with. I hope you'll leave a comment anyway. I really appreciate you reading and love hearing back from you.
