Wool-Cashmere Coat Care Guide

A staple coat in merino wool and cashmere is something you purchase for many seasons. Follow these care instructions to help it stay in your wardrobe for decades.

  • We recommend dry cleaning with hydrocarbon solvents (F). This method doesn’t affect the fibre structure, preserving the strength and original state of the materials. Request to remove or protect buttons and zips before cleaning.
  • Before handing your garment over for dry cleaning, ensure the staff understand “F” as a “flammable solvent” — specific types of hydrocarbons, not Freon or fluorine.
  • To get rid of minor wrinkles and creases, iron or steam the garment in the direction of the pile, from the top down. We recommend steaming the garment in a vertical position. If using an iron, choose a temperature up to 110°C/230°F, with the steam setting turned off.
  • Dust and stains can set in the fabric, so we recommend dry cleaning the coat at the end of the season rather than at the start of a new one. You shouldn’t wash the coat at home, but you can remove dust with a lint roller.
  • At the end of the season, put the clean coat in a breathable garment bag and hang it on wide hangers in a dry, ventilated area. Place a lavender sachet or other anti-moth products nearby. To prevent the garment from fading, keep it away from bright light sources.
  • Friction against other surfaces (bags, seatbelts, etc.) can cause pilling. Remove pills with a fabric shaver or ask for this service at dry cleaning.
