Seven ways to secure your Pashmina shawls in winter

Always dry-clean your Pashmina shawl, iron it using a protective cloth and do not store these shawls with naphthalene balls or cakes, says an expert.

Bhuvan Ahuja, fashion expert of shawls, stoles and scarf retailer, has shared tips:

Always dry-clean your shawl. The shawls are too fine to take any kind of wringing or rubbing.

Always store these shawls wrapped in a muslin cloth or protective case. Storing them away in plastic covers is not advisable as it might lead to lint or balling of loose yarns on the top surface.

Do not store these shawls with naphthalene balls or cakes.

Keep them away from any kind of moisture.

Indulge in seeking professional restoration every once in few years.

Iron using a protective cloth and at low temperatures.

Always flat dry.
