Fabric and fashion connoisseur Lulu O'Connor joins Olivia von Halle, for a masterclass in caring for your cashmere collection. Enjoy her exclusive insights into extending and preserving your luxury cashmere wardrobe.
Cashmere has to be the most soft and luxurious of fabrics, and wearing it always makes me feel indulged, with the delicate fibres so smooth against my skin. Another reason I love cashmere is that it’s hypoallergenic and antibacterial, and even better, it’s an environmentally friendly material, being completely organic and biodegradable.
These latter considerations in particular mean that there is a special way to care for cashmere, which is very different to how you would care for other, manmade fibres. I am going to share with you my cashmere care routine, and explain why each step is important for keeping your cashmere garments soft, free from damage, especially moth damage, and feeling gorgeous.
