Director Paul Feig does a brilliant job of keeping the two very different characters separate while allowing them to morph into fuller, more well-rounded versions of themselves by... Continue reading

Oh no! Sounds like the zipper definitely is the culprit, that's one of the reasons why I suggest a pillowcase with a tie... Nothing to snap the fibers. I wouldn't even use a net bag, try the pillowcase. I think the netting might rub the sweater in spots creating tension on the fibers. Cashmere is wool but it is more delicate. Good luck on your next sweater washing. Thanks for commenting, it's good for others to know what not to do!
