If you’re like us, you’re *obsessed* with your new cashmere pieces. And, well, well-loved can start to look well-worn if you don’t care for it properly. We want to keep our cashmere looking it’s absolute best for as long as possible, so we went to the source (our cashmere creator) to get her expert advice on the nuances of caring for cashmere.

1. Why does cashmere pill?

Pilling is when the short fibres on a cashmere garment twist around themselves. They tend to appear as small balls of fluff or snags, and most commonly occur where there’s regular friction – for example, under arms. Pilling is an inevitable consequence of the fibre, and has nothing to do with the quality of cashmere.

2. How can I prevent cashmere from pilling?

You cannot prevent cashmere from pilling, but you can keep pilling to a minimum. First, wash your clothes inside out – that way, any pilling can’t be seen. Second, hand wash your garments with a gentle cashmere wash. Third, always naturally air dry your cashmere. And fourth, brush your clothes often with a lint brush.

3. How can I de-pill my cashmere?

You can de-pill your cashmere with a cashmere comb. It’s simple – just run the comb gently over garments, inside and out, and you’ll find that the tangles of fibre come off easily. If you don’t have a comb, simply use a razor blade to remove the balls of fluff individually. Avoid scissors, as these can damage the fabric.

OUR PERSONAL PICK FOR PILLING: Conair Rechargeable Fabric Defuzzer/Shaver

“Geraldine suggested this little device, and I tend to trust her when it comes to caring for her DDR!” Cheryl laughed. “Audrey’s top pilled a little bit where her squash blossom rubbed it, just one of the inevitable things about cashmere, especially with accessories, so we ordered one to try it out. The cashmere looked brand new, with no damage. You can actually see the pills and fuzz in the canister. Just dump and go. I personally got the re-chargeable version, but you can also get them with batteries. We suggest to put one in everyone's closet!”

Time to set your sights on this pretty pastel, because a hue dubbed “digital lavender” has been appellated by industry experts as the color of the year.

Well, not really – Billy the Kid and his cronies donned nothing but dirt – but once again, super-stylist Lisa Martensen managed to create a look that was aesthetically pleasing yet felt authentic to the outlaw vibe.
