Cashmere is precious and you should treat cashmere with care. It is wise to wash a cashmere sweater at home than dry cleaning it in a laundry. Along with being expensive, the chemicals might damage your cloth.

How to hand wash cashmere at home
Lukewarm water is most suitable for washing cashmere. It is because hot water can make the colour bleed while cold water cannot remove stains from the cloth.
Add one teaspoon of soft detergent in every 4 litre of water. If you are going to wash more than one Cashmere, you should begin with light colour cloth.
Slowly, swirl the cloth around in water. Remember not to rub or stretch the cloth or else there will be pilling. You can swirl the cloth for about five minutes. Remember not to soak it for long or else the cloth will start fading.
Empty the soap water and refill the vessel with clean water. Soak the cloth in clean water and repeat the process till there is no soap sud left in cloth.
When there is no soap left, you can remove excess water by pressing the cloth slowly.
Do not hang cashmere or dry it on direct sunlight. Keep the cloth in flat position.
