CARE: Kyoto Cardigan

Care instructions to help you maintain the quality and longevity of your Kyoto cardigan:

Hand Washing:

  • For best results, hand wash your cardigan in cold water using a mild detergent.
  • Gently agitate the water to ensure thorough cleaning, then rinse with cold water until all detergent is removed.

Avoiding Bleach:

  • Do not use bleach or harsh chemicals, as they can damage the wool and cashmere fibres.


  • After washing, gently squeeze out excess water from the cardigan without wringing or twisting.
  • Lay the cardigan flat on a clean towel and reshape it to its original dimensions.
  • Allow it to air dry away from direct sunlight or heat sources to prevent shrinking or stretching.

Steam Ironing:

  • If necessary, lightly steam the cardigan using a garment steamer or iron on a low-temperature setting.
  • Avoid pressing directly on the fabric to prevent crushing the delicate knitted details.


  • When not in use, store your cardigan folded neatly in a cool, dry place.
  • To deter moths, you can place cedar blocks or lavender sachets in the storage area.

Pilling Prevention:

  • To minimise pilling, gently brush the surface of the cardigan with a soft-bristled garment brush or sweater stone.

Avoiding Snags:

  • Be cautious of sharp jewellery or rough surfaces that could snag the delicate knit of the cardigan.

Following these care instructions will help ensure that your Kyoto cardigan remains soft, cozy, and beautiful for seasons to come, allowing you to enjoy its luxurious comfort with confidence.
