Care Instructions


Brushing your cashmere removes pilling and ensures that your cashmere jumper looks and feels like new. 

Brushing instructions:

  1. Lay the garment out on a hard flat surface.
  2. Place one hand on the garment to prevent it from moving or over stretching.
  3. Using either the "Illann Premium Cashmere Comb" or "Illann Travel Comb" gently comb away from the hand that you are using to steady the garment. 
  4. Continue to replace your hand in different areas of the garment and brush until you have covered all of the areas that need care.
NOTE - Do not press too hard on the cashmere as this can stretch and disfigure the shape of you jumper or gilet.


Hand washing is the best way to clean most cashmere garments, although dry cleaning may be necessary to remove stains that hand washing cannot remove.

Hand washing instructions:

  1. The garment should be soaked in lukewarm water.
  2. Using a specialist cashmere wash, gently squeeze the suds through the garment. (We recommend “The Laundress”)
  3. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water, being careful not to wring or rub the garment; as this may damage or misshape the item.
  4. Prior to drying, excess water in the garment can be removed by rolling the garment in a dry towel, or putting the item on a short light spin cycle in a washing machine. Never tumble dry your cashmere garment.
  5. To dry, place the item flat on a towel, out of direct heat or sunlight.
  6. If necessary, reshape the garment whilst still damp.
