You can iron leather, but not directly. With a sheet of brown paper between leather and metal, use the lowest setting and iron gently. Actually, try this first: Hang the jacket for a day and let the creases sort themselves out.

To maintain the form of resilient wool, never hang after cleaning and keep away from the sun.

Resist the urge to snip a snag. (That creates a hole.) Instead, turn your pullover inside out and coax the loose thread back into place.

The rule of thumb for cashmere, be gentle. During and after washing, do not wring or twist. Instead, squeeze gently to remove water. Then, lay flat on a towel and roll together gently to remove more.
