Your pashmina scarf will last for years with the proper care. Pashmina fabric is woven from the wool of goats indigenous to the Himalayan mountains and mixed with silk in either a 70/30 or 50/50 blend. Because they are made from natural fabrics, pashmina scarves do not have to be dry-cleaned and can be carefully hand washed.
Fill the sink with lukewarm water. Add a small capful of baby shampoo, swirling the water around so the shampoo dissolves.
Place the pashmina scarf in the water and let it soak for several minutes. Do not rub or twist the scarf, as this may pull it out of shape.
Drain the sink and refill it with lukewarm water. Add a capful of hair conditioner and swirl the scarf around in it several times.
Rinse the scarf thoroughly in lukewarm water.
Lay the pashmina scarf flat to dry. Do not place the scarf in direct sunlight or near heat sources.
If desired, press the pashmina with a cool iron.
