Thanks for stopping by!

As a small business, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our online store.

We'll be using this time to work on some exciting new designs and website updates until we can re-open our doors. 

THANK YOU for your support of Lio Mara

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.

For our botanically dyed silk scarves, extra care is required:

Using only botanicals for a 100% natural dye with no added chemicals, this scarf is delicate. 

To care for your scarf:

  • Please keep it stored out of sunlight
  • Where possible, avoid getting it wet - if it does get wet, untie your scarf and lie it flat to dry.
  • To wash the scarf, very gently hand wash it in cold water and if needed, spot clean any marks with a PH neutral soap or one specifically for silk. Lie the scarf out flat, and out of sunlight, to dry.
For our regular silk scarves, the below care should be taken:
  • 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.
  • 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 wet, untie and dry flat. If appropriate care is not taken, darker colours may transfer to lighter areas.

Ironing silk:

  • Iron on the reverse side using the silk setting - we recommend using a clean pillowcase (or similar) between the silk and iron for extra precaution.
  • Your silk can also be steamed (or hang in the bathroom while you shower!)

To store your silk:

  • Allow 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.
