LALITPUR is a new addition to our exclusive line of cashmere essentials. Luxuriously soft and light thanks to an ingenuous pairing of two of nature’s most exceptional fibers - cashmere and linen – LALITPUR feels as natural as a second skin. This thoughtful combination allows for the unparalleled softness of cashmere to shine while benefiting from linen’s strength and breathability. An elevated wardrobe essential, it works equally well on its own, as an elevated version of a tee shirt, as it does as a cozy layering piece. LALITPUR has a classic fit, featuring an easy round neck, short sleeves, and thoughtful rib knit hems. As a nod to its Nepalese origin, the knit comes in a cotton pouch with a red kavala string for good luck.
LALITPUR has a classic not too tight not too loose fit, so we recommend choosing your regular size.

Products made from cashmere requires a little more attention than products made of other more coarser fibers. After wearing a new cashmere product you may find small balls of fiber forming on the surface. These balls are not indicative of an inferior quality – it is an inevitable consequence of the careful processing of this very fine fibre. Pills can easily by removed by hand or by using a cashmere comb.
Washing is not always necessary and it is hard on your garment and on the environment. Cashmere is a self cleaning fiber that requires less washing than other materials. To save resources, simply air your garment for a fresh start.
However, if you do wish to wash your garment, we recommend hand wash, 30 degrees, using high quality wool soap such as Eucalan or Sonett. Let the garment soak in water for 10-15 min. Rinse in 30 degree water. Avoid twisting, pressing or squeezing the water out and let the garment dry flat. Steam on medium temperature for a nice finish.
If you have a very gentle washing machine it is possible to wash your Aiayu garment in the machine on a wool program 30 degrees, low cycle. However washing in the machine is at ones own risk, as we cannot guarantee the individual program settings on washing machines.
