USE A HEAVY, WARM IRON BUT NOT DIRECTLY. 

ALWAYS PLACE A COTTON OR MUSLIN CLOTH ON YOUR CASHMERE BEFORE IRONING.

STORE YOUR CASHMERE IN A BREATHABLE COTTON OR MUSLIN BAG. 

WHILE STORING MAKE SURE YOUR CASHMERE HAS NO FOOD OR BEVERAGE LEFT OVERS ON IT. THIS WILL ATTRACT BUGS AND CHANCES OF DAMAGE INCREASE.
