Gran Sasso Cashmere Sweaters - making them a little bit longer

Hello,
I bought some 100% cashmere sweaters from the Gran Sasso vintage line in V neck, very cheap from best secret last year. But in my opinion they are a little bit too short. When I move my arms up and so on, the sweaters slide above my belt. I know, that when it would be a wool sweater, than I could try to stretch it a little bit longer by washing it with dishwashing detergent and/or vinegar. Is this also possible with 100% cashmere? I need only 1 or 2 cm...

Maybe the trouser rise is too short.
sounds risky to stretch a cashmere sweater for only a cm or two of length

I can’t see how attempting something like that would end well.

You can try blocking the sweater. If you go to Youtube, you can find tutorials by searching for the term "blocking sweaters." However, I would sooner find higher rise trousers than block a sweater and stretch out the length. The first will be a longer-lasting solution and less risky. Try Rota, Dapper Classics, H. Stockton, O'Connell's, J. Press, The Armoury, No Man Walks Alone, and Spier & Mackay for higher rise trousers.
