Cashmere comes from goats and is finer and softer than sheep's wool. Cashmere jumpers, scarves and other garments often need special care. Don t twist or wring cashmere after washing it. Smooth it out on a flat surface and leave it to air dry. That could eliminate the need to iron. If it’s still wrinkled when it's dry, iron on the reverse. Use the lowest heat and steam settings. Move in gentle strokes, never lingering on any one spot. Never iron dirty or stained cashmere - you risk the dirt setting in permanently. Fold your cashmere garment after ironing, as hanging could cause it to droop.
Iron wool and wool blends on the reverse side. Use steam, as ironing wool when dry can damage it. Use a low heat.
