Cashmere Wrap - Scarlet
The Ecologie re-engineered cashmere travel wrap is incredibly versatile! Use it as an extra layer or a luxurious wrap whilst travelling, as a super-soft and cosy oversized scarf in the Winter, or as a light stole on Summer evenings. Made from 95% cashmere and 5% Merino wool, it is soft enough to be worn next to the skin.
One size, it measures a generous 70cm x 180cm, or 27″ x 70″ approximately.
Although cashmere can be dry-cleaned, this is a very harsh process for such a delicate fibre, so we prefer to suggest hand washing. As with any cashmere garment, minimal washing is ideal. Always use a liquid soap which is especially formulated for wool or cashmere, and always use cold water. Gently squeeze the garment to wet it without pulling or rubbing it. Squeeze out excess water – never wring! – and rinse thouroughly in clean cold water to which you may add a dash of white vinegar as a softening agent. Never use proprietory fabric softeners on cashmere! Again gently squeeze out excess water and then carefully reshape on a towel. Roll the garment up inside the towel and squeeze again to remove more water. Reshape and dry flat away from direct sunlight. Cool iron if needed.
