CASHMERE CARE

 

We recommend that your RUE JACOB cashmere is gently washed after it has been worn three or four times.
Cashmere knitwear can be hand washed or dry cleaned. We recommend hand washing, following these few simple guidelines:

  • Your RUE JACOB cashmere should be hand washed in lukewarm water (30ºC).
  • Gently squeeze the suds through the fabric, taking care not to rub the garment too much as this may cause shrinkage and increase pilling. Rinse the garment in cool clean water, squeezing gently without twisting or wringing. A short, light spin in a spin dryer will help to remove most of the water.
  • Smooth the garment back into its original shape, gently coaxing any facings or trims back to the correct size, and dry naturally away from direct heat such as radiators and sunlight.
  • Ideally the garment should be dried flat on a clean towel.
  • When dry, press lightly with a cool iron (two dots).
  • Under no circumstances should the garment be tumble-dried.
  • Following these instructions, your garment will preserve its shape and luxurious touch for many years – the hallmarks of the very best cashmere.

 

FIBRE INFORMATION

 

Cashmere - is the hair from the cashmere goat - there are many different herds living in various countries but the superior hair is on the goats from Inner Mongolia - our cashmere sweaters are all knitted only using this pedigree quality.

The goats hair is hand combed from their underbelly once a year in the springtime.

The resultant hair is scarce.. after it is carefully examined and graded... and it takes the produce of 2-3 goats to knit one cashmere sweater. The hair is transported to the cashmere specialists for cleansing, spinning and dyeing.

 

PRODUCTION

 

By using the very best natural fibres available... then having these turned into top quality yarns by experts at colour and spinning production... the designs are created and the garments knitted in Hawick, Scotland on fully - fashioned machinery.

The spinners and the knitter have all been in business for over a hundred years each and are proud to maintain the Scottish tradition of working with the best to produce the best.
