It’s cold outside, winter is here!

It's cold outside, winter is here!

Winter is here!…Our knees are knocking, and our teeth are chattering! As we’re all layering up to keep these cold weather symptoms at bay, your winter wear needs special care to ensure it lasts all winter long. Anything from cashmere scarves and sweaters, to wool coats and boots…It’s important to remember two key things:

For most cashmere pieces, dry cleaning is the preferred mode of cleaning so ALWAYS check the labels to see what they advise. If you can wash your cashmere at home, hand wash in cold water and dry flat. NEVER use the dryer or hot water as that can cause shrinkage. Drying on a hanger will cause stretching.

Wool is one of the best fabrics out there to keep you warm in the winter. For multicolor wool coats, or wool coats with another fabric like leather juxtaposed with the wool; trust your dry cleaner as you want to avoid any color bleeding that can occur during home care. Wool items usually cannot be washed, so do not try to clean at home if the label indicates “dry clean only”.
