Cashmere blend throws or blankets require a bit of special care to keep them in good condition. Here are some tips to help you care for your cashmere blend throw:
Read the care label: Check the care label on your blanket for specific instructions on how to clean it. Follow the instructions carefully to avoid damaging the fabric.
Handwash: If the care label allows, it is best to handwash your cashmere blend throw in cold water using a gentle detergent. Avoid using hot water or harsh detergents as they can damage the delicate fibres. Gently squeeze out excess water and lay it flat to air dry.
Machine wash: If you prefer to machine wash, use a delicate cycle and cold water. Use a mild detergent and avoid using fabric softeners. Place the throw in a mesh laundry bag to protect it from stretching or snagging.
Dry cleaning: If the care label recommends dry cleaning, take your cashmere blend throw to a professional cleaner who specializes in cleaning delicate fabrics.
Storage: When not in use, store your cashmere blend blanket in a clean, dry place, away from direct sunlight and moisture. Fold it neatly and avoid hanging it as this can cause stretching.
