Caring for Silk

Silk can be dry cleaned.

Machine wash on delicate cycle with mild detergent.

Handwash using lukewarm water and mild detergent. Do not soak, scrub or wring.

For best results iron from damp, on reverse, using low setting. Trust us - it gives the nicest finish and is the handiest way to dry.

Wash like colours together.

As our silk is a unique mulberry silk with a unique production, we do not find the special silk detergents give a great finish. We prefer to use gentle non-biological detergent.

As is the nature of block printing, prints soften beautifully through use.

Silk dries very quickly. Hang to dry, out of direct sunlight.

Tumble dry not recommended (or needed as silk dries so quickly).

Like all natural fabrics, there can be a slight contracting of the silk after washing which relaxes out when ironed.
