Cashmere & Wool
Wool and cashmere are two of the most highly sought after and comfortable upholstery fabrics used in the furniture manufacturing business. Known for their luxurious, hard wearing and waterproof qualities as well as their visual appeal, these fabrics are regularly featured on high quality pieces and come in an enormous array of colors.
There are specific rules to follow when cleaning your wool or cashmere furniture. While loose dirt is easily vacuumed out of the upholstery, ground in or wet stains need special attention.
For large spills, big, unsightly stains and general overall cleaning, it is best to take your furniture items to a specialist, who will be able to dry clean them without risking damage.
To ensure that the colors on your pieces do not fade, keep them out of bright sunlight wherever possible. Because wool is a natural substance, it is more likely to lose vibrancy over time than a synthetic.
Keep a suitable spot cleaner on hand so that you can tackle minor stains before they have had time to set. If there is no spot cleaner available, substitute with a damp white cloth or a small amount of very mild dish detergent solution, which will cut through greasy foods and makeup. Always blot the fabric dry promptly after spot cleaning.

The use of colored cloths to spot clean, which can transfer dye to the natural material.
The use of bleach, ammonia or any other harsh cleaners, which will permanently damage the wool or cashmere.
Placing the wool or cashmere anywhere near a rust-prone surface. Because wool is porous, it will absorb the rust stain, which is then not usually removable.
