Although the shawl/scarf is a simple garment that can be worn as a necktie for men, its utility is limited by the wearer’s imagination and creativity. Scarves are now a must-have accessory for modern men. Scarves are no longer a women-thing. Even cosmopolitan males have discovered scarves as a great way of improving their physical appearance.
However, it is not easy to care for scarves. It can be difficult to care for scarves depending on what material they are made from. Every owner of scarves should understand that they should be treated with care, as delicately as possible.
Cashmere shawls are delicate, especially if they are made from woolen material. Scarves can be made from silk, satin, or cotton. But wool scarves deserve special attention. Wool requires more care than your average to make it last longer.
Pure wool is made from animal wool, such as sheep, mountain goats, and camels. These wools are especially vulnerable to extreme heat or harsh chemicals. These materials can cause problems for fabrics and garments.
1. Woolen shawls should be treated the same as any other woolen material. Wrinkling is a concern so it is best to give the woolen shawl a 24-hour break between uses. This will allow the woolen garments to fix the wrinkles without needing separate ironing.
2. You can fold your scarves gently and neatly to store them in a dry, cool place. You can fold them and place them on a padded hook. Hang them in the bathroom with the steam turned on to get the moisture out of the wrinkles.
3. Cover the scarves with a press cloth before ironing or pressing them. The woolen garment's fibers can be severely damaged by heat so don't press directly on them. A flat iron with a built-in steamer is a better choice as the moisture will reduce the need to heat extremes.
