Silk items are a great investment, and it pays to care for them properly. Simple steps are required to prolong the life of silk sweaters, we advise checking the instructions on the care label of your item before attempting to clean as some silks are washable, and for others dry cleaning is recommended. If your silk is not dry clean only, then it can be hand washed in lukewarm water with a delicate detergent. If you do decide to hand wash silk, always use lukewarm water and a specific, mild detergent in order to protect the silk’s natural properties. Leave to soak for a few minutes, rinse clean and press out any excess water. Avoid putting in the tumble dryer and instead lay flat to dry naturally. If the care label advises machine washing, then ensure a gentle, cold-water cycle is chosen. Due to its delicate nature, careful storage of silk is a must. We recommend placing in a breathable cotton bag when folded, or hanging up in a zippered garment bag to keep it wrinkle-free.
