2. How to store
your pashmina shawls?
In order to store your pashmina
shawls few thing to be remembered. Here we have summarized few
- Dampness, sunlight and leakages are very
harmful to your precious pashmina shawl. So before storing
your pashmina shawl in basements or attics, always keep in
mind that your pashmina shawls don’t get in touch with
dampness, sunlight and leakages. Fold pashmina shawl or pack
them neatly in tissue paper or polythene bag and store them
in closet away from light, dust and dampness.
- Cleaning pashmina shawl before storage is
recommended, as fresh stains that may not yet be visible will
oxidize and become fixed during storage; they may also be
the food for moths. Moths have a discerning palate; they feast
only on natural fabrics. Mothballs (naphthalene) and cedar
chips are standard protection from moth infestation of woolens.
- To store a pure pashmina shawl during summer,
the most important thing is to keep moisture away, and so
please do not store pashmina shawls in a damp place. A well-sealed
plastic storage box (available in most stores) is good enough
(be sure that if there is any moisture inside). Make sure
the box is dry before you put your pashmina shawl in.
- To keep the moth away, the first important
thing is to make sure that the shawl is clean before long-time
storage. Pay close attention to any food stains as moths are
particularly attracted to our normal food proteins and cooking
oils. Those mothproofing products are helpful, or simply spray
some perfume on a piece of paper and put the paper next to
your shawls inside the box.
3. Few more extra

allow the pashmina shawl two or three days' rest after one

- Do not wear the pashmina shawl next to rough
clothing, metal necklace, bracelet, belt and rough leather

with rough surface.
- Pilling is caused by abrasion during regular
use, it often develops on elbows, on the seat of skirts, and
in areas rubbed by a bag or briefcase, even seat belt. Soft,

silk or synthetic fibers scarf, make sure it is the smooth
surface that is next to your pashmina shawl.
