washing & handling

silk care

As our silk is hand-reeled, slight variations show in the fabric and are a sign of quality. With the right care, your silk garment will maintain its luxurious look and feel for a long time. Silk is a protein - a lot like your hair. If washed by hand, do not let it soak for more than five minutes. Whether machine or hand washed, it is important to use a natural, mild silk detergent. You get the best results by turning the garment inside out and using a mesh laundry bag. Dry your garment by placing it flat on a towel. If it shrank or has lost its form, pull it gently back into shape and let it dry at room temperature. Silk insulates and breathes. It has a natural thermoregulation ability that helps maintain a comfortable body temperature.

wool care

If that does not work, use lukewarm water to flow through the fabric and lay it down flat to dry. Wash your wool by using the wool cycle and use a natural, mild detergent. You get the best results by turning the garment inside out and using a mesh laundry bag. Dry your garment by placing it flat on a towel.
