General Tips for all Cashmere products
- Do not wear the same garment frequently, allow the garment two or three days’ rest after one day’s wearing.
- A silk scarf goes well with cashmere top and cardigan, to put it between your cashmere top/cardigan and your neck will also prevent powder or other cosmetics stains.
- Do not wear the garment next to rough clothing, metal necklace, bracelet, belt and rough leather such as crocodile leather bags. Dress up your cashmere with silk scarf and pearl accessories instead of accessories with rough surface.
- Pilling is caused by abrasion during regular use, it often develops on elbows, on the seat of skirts, and in areas rubbed by a bag or briefcase, even seat belt. Soft, fuzzy surfaces are more susceptible than others. So for cashmere and silk/cashmere, it is normal when pilling develops in some areas after times of wearing.
- To avoid pilling, it is important not to rub the garment with rough clothing, metal accessories, bags and all kinds of belts. In case you can not avoid the belts such as seat belts, cover your garment with a silk or synthetic fibers scarf, make sure it is the smooth surface that is next to your garment.
