It is important to note that cashmere hair makes a very fine and fragile fiber. Due to the natural surface texture of the wool fiber, one must expect felting and pilling to some extend. It is completely impossible to avoid by normal use, but of course it depends on how you use the product. However, use on course materials (e.g. a wool upholstered couch) can intensify it. This is why it is best used for throws, shawls and bedspreads. We recommend not sitting on it and keeping away from animals.
Geismars’ throws must always be treated by a professional dry cleaner.
