Cashmere care

Tallis cashmere care instructions
Our cashmere

Our cashmere hats are made from upcycled cashmere jumpers, so you are really wearing a story when you wear one!  Each cashmere jumper we source can make two or three hats making each hat nearly one of a kind.  Our cashmere hats are hand-sewn in Portland, Oregon by Faith of Faith Hats.  For the bright colours, she also hand-dyes the cashmere before sewing.

 

Caring for cashmere

Cashmere is a luxurious product which requires delicate care.  Don't stretch or hang the cashmere while wet as this will cause it to loose its shape.  Avoid keeping it by a heater or in direct sunlight as this will shorten its life.

 

Cleaning

Hand wash in lukewarm water with a mild soap.  Reshape the hat while damp by laying flat.
