Care & Colours


Cashmere is one of the finest natural fibres in the world. This precious and delicate fibre is luxurious to wear, yet requires a little more care and attention than products made from coarser wools. We recommend that you gently hand wash your cashmere with a delicate liquid soap designed for wool and cashmere. Then it should be dried flat so that it doesn’t stretch.


After wearing your new cashmere for the first few times, you might find small balls of fibre forming on the surface. These small balls, or pills are caused by some of the loose fibres tangling together as areas of your garment are rubbed during its wear. The pilling is not indicative of inferiour quality, it is an inevitable consequence of the careful processing of this fine fibre. Pills can be easily removed by hand, or by using a cashmere comb. You will find that by removing the pills in this way, the garment will actually consolidate and soften further. If cared for properly, your cashmere will maintain its original sumptuous quality.


Moths are attracted to sweat, hair and food stains and they also love the dark! We recommend that you keep your cashmere clean, and aired unless you are storing it. Keeping your cashmere in Plastic bags with cedar balls is a good repellant.


We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear on the Cocowai website. If there are colour variations between the colours shown on the website on your computer and the actual colours of the products, this may be due to the colour reproduction on your computer.

Careful consideration is given to the materials used in all our products. Your Cocowai cashmere product is made using the very highest quality of yarns available in the world. The totally handmade nature of each product must allow for natural irregularities in the weave and knit, and the dye of each product. The very nature of these differences is what makes every Cocowai piece completely unique.
