Kaiko’s warm and soft cashmere products are manufactured in Nepal following the principles of Fair Trade, fulfilling Kaiko’s Fashion with a mission-promise also through the creation of fair jobs for Nepalese women.
The loose-fitting Relaxed Cashmere Knit feels like a hug. The oversized knit is long, reaching below the bum, has a v-neck, and side slits at the hem. The neckline complements the décolletage, while not being too revealing. The knit’s dropped shoulder and longer back hem create a stylish silhouette for varied looks. Ribbing at the sleeves and hem. An amazingly laid-back and versatile piece, the cashmere knit is an office-ready pair for your sleek trousers or the perfect match with yoga pants for at-home comfort.
The knit’s stocking stitch makes it wonderfully light, and the cashmere wool mix is a light, breathable, and incredibly soft material. The color is brown-tinted powdery pink, Azalea.
Every piece is knit to shape, ensuring no material waste is produced.

The model wears a Relaxed Cashmere Knit in size XS/S. The knit has an oversized fit.
In fittings with the Kaiko team, the influence of personal style on size choice was highlighted. If you generally wear a size S/M, the smaller size will provide a more feminine and fitted look, whereas the M/L size will sit more loosely, providing both added length and an oversize feel. Please refer to the size guide for help with selecting a size.
Cashmere is a luxuriously soft material, but it is also delicate and needs good care. With proper maintenance, the knit will last good for a very long time.
Cashmere is a luxurious and soft material but it is also delicate and needs good care. With proper care, it will last for years to come. Cashmere wool is one of the warmest natural fibres. This is thanks to the fluffiness of the fibre, which creates small pockets of air that provide insulation. Because of this softness and fluffiness, cashmere knitwear pills easily. This is a feature though, not a flaw, and with good care the elegant look of your garment is restored. As the fibres set over time, the pilling will decrease.
Wash & Care
Please check the washing label of your new garment before washing and follow the care instructions. You can wash most of Kaiko's garments in 40 degrees Celsius. Kaiko does not recommend tumble drying as it may cause colours to fade and increase shrinkage.
Kaiko recommends washing without fabric softeners and with similar colours. After washing, it is good to reshape the garment slightly whilst damp. With items that contain Lyocell, Kaiko recommends you use a wash bag and, if necessary, iron the garment from the inside after washing and drying. For tights, Kaiko recommends hand washing and reshaping whilst damp.
Particularly garments with prints should be turned inside out before washing. Do note that the hook-and-loop and zip fasteners on garments may damage other items in the laundry. Garments may shrink in the first wash by 5–8% depending on the item.
It is good to remove possible stains right when they occur but Kaiko recommends treating stains at least before putting the garment in the washing machine. However, prolonged soaking in cool water may be damaging to prints and colours.
You can – and it is good to – lengthen the interval at which you wash particularly women's garments by airing them after use.
