How to Wash Shawls
A little care goes a long way in promoting the longevity and texture of your Pashtush Shawl. Please follow these instructions to make sure that your shawl remains in its full glory through years to come.
"Shawls are an investment, They are crafted art pieces that are usually passed on from one generation to another. Their exuberance and pompous craftsmanship has earned them worldwide respect and unending love. The finest quality of cashmere wool will keep you warm with a touch of class."
If you throw your delicate Pashtush Shawl in the harsh monstrosity of a washing machine, rest assured your shawl will not stand the test of time. Good things take patience, and that’s what the world loves about them, the care and concern that goes into not just buying a Pashtush shawl, but also in maintaining it.
We recommend that you take your Pashtush woolen shawl to a professional dry cleaner for laundering.
Even though your Pashtush shawl does not require ironing, as it has been pre finished and pressed. it is recommended that you always use steam when pressing wool. Set your iron on the wool setting and avoid ironing your Shawl when it is completely dry. (quick tip - hanging your shawl outside a hot steam shower can also quickly replenish the moisture content in the wool. )
Washing at Home
If you are unable to have access to a professional dry cleaner then it is recommended that you Gently hand wash your shawl in water, using a mild soap or detergent.
If wool gets wet, the best way to dry is at room temperature, away from any direct sunlight.
Breathing and Refreshing
Unpacking and hanging in a steamy bathroom can refresh your Pashtush Shawl. Moisture from the steam has properties that will ease wrinkles. The brilliant quality wool used in Pashtush will breathe the fresh air and be ready to be worn.
Since food stains and body oils attract moths, you should ensure that your shawl is clean before packing it away in airtight bag or containers. Ideally it is recommended to use a moth repellent but do not place it directly on the fabric.
