Care For Your Silk
Designed to be loved and worn again and again, with the right care your silk piece can be a treasured item for years to come.
Read on for some simple tips on how to care for your silk.
- Dry clean or handwash (gently!) with cool water to protect the fibers of the silk. Rinse with cold water and lie flat or hang dry. If using a detergent, read and follow the instruction label carefully to ensure it is suitable for silk. Extra care needs to be taken when washing designs that feature a contrast design of very light and contrasting dark areas to ensure colour(s) do not transfer.
- Iron on the reverse side using the silk setting or a steamer, or simply hang in the bathroom while you shower. If ironing, we like to use a clean tea towel between the silk and iron for extra precaution.
- Where possible, avoid getting your silk wet. Light water marks can be removed by a dry cleaner - choose a reputable, trusted dry cleaner. If your silk has got heavily wet, please remove and dry flat. If appropriate care is not taken, darker colours may transfer to lighter areas.
- Allow your silk to breath when stored but avoid direct sunlight which may cause colours to fade. We like to store our silk in the 100% cotton drawstring bag we provide with each silk scarf.
