sink thoroughly if you do not want your sweater picking up more
stains from the it. Fill up the sink half way with warm water and
a gentle baby shampoo. Shampoos are best for pure cashmere sweaters
because it is mostly goat hair. Stir the water around to make sure
all all of the shampoo is completely dissolved before proceeding to
the washing. If there is residual soap, it will cling to your sweater and can cause stains.
Put the sweater into water and let it soak. Swish it around, but keep the sweater together to keep it from stretching. Wash the sweater with care and avoid excessive rubbing which can damage your sweater. After you have washed each part of the sweater, remove it and drain the sink. Rinse the women's cashmere sweater gently with cool water until soap is thoroughly removed.
Place the sweater on clean dry non-dyed towel and roll it up in the towel to squeeze out the excess water.

Blot away water on the women's cashmere sweater with another towel and keep it away from direct heat or sunlight as it dries. When it is clean, be sure to take proper care of your cashmere sweater by not treating it roughly, never hanging it up etc.
