Hand wash in cold water with a mild silk-friendly detergent. Leave to soak for a few minutes. Rinse with fresh water. Remove excess water by gently pressing your silk into a ball- Do not ring out!
Leave your silk to dry flat on a towel or hang your silk on a padded hanger to allow creases to drop out. Do not tumble dry. Do not leave to dry in direct sunlight or on a radiator. Iron on a cool setting.
Avoid storing in sunlight as this may weaken fibre and fade colour. If storing for a long period of time, hang silk in a breathable fabric bag. Do not store in plastic, as this may lock in moisture and damage fabric.
