Wool and Cashmere

Historically speaking, wool was the first natural fibre to be used for clothing. It is still one of the most important fibres today thanks to its remarkable ability to absorb moisture, its breathability and its insulating properties.

The most precious wool comes from Merino sheep. Other wool varieties, like mohair, cashmere, camel, vicuña, alpaca and llama, come from animals that live at high altitudes or in desert regions.

When machine washing, take care not to overload the machine to avoid crushing your clothing. Use a wool-specific laundry detergent and add fabric softener. Select a wool programme and set the temperature to 30 °C at most.

Wool can handle a gentle spin cycle or be wrung out by hand. Finally, as soon as the wash is complete, dry flat.
