Cashmere is one of the rarest fibres in the world, combed from the undercoat of Chinese and Mongolian goats. Because it is soft and fuzzy, cashmere can be prone to pilling, caused by rubbing during regular use. This is perfectly normal, and pilling can preferably be removed with a sweater comb.
Always check the instructions on the care label first and wash cashmere by hand or in cold water on the delicate cycle in the washing machine, using a mild detergent. Put cashmere in a mesh washing bag to protect it from snagging. Dry flat on a towel.
Mélange yarns are made with top-dyed fibres of different shades, spun together, and are used to create heathered and luminous knitted fabrics.
From the French word meaning ‘mixture’ or ‘medley’, the process of creating mélanges has a smaller impact on the environment than dyeing a finished cloth.
Dyeing and blending fibres before spinning saves water and energy, reduces emissions and creates subtle variations that result in a much deeper, richer colour.
