7. The Cashmere Choice
The Cashmere Choice is a family run boutique. They want to share our love for cashmere with the world and are committed to providing their customers with top quality clothing and care at great prices which is why they have created a anti moth cashmere sweater storage bag.
Moths thrive on cashmere. They quickly turn luxurious clothing into holy, unwearable pieces destined to be discarded. Storing cashmere safely is more important than ever. Using plastic bags to store cashmere causes moisture to accumulate and mold fungus to spread.
Hanging pieces in a cupboard also leaves them exposed to moth attacks. To keep your cashmere in pristine condition, using breatheable cotton anti-moth protection pouches is key – they are a proven, environmentally friendly way, to keep moths at bay.
Order your essential cashmere protection kit today to be confident your luxurious clothing will stay that way.
