Known for its lustrous sheen and luxurious elegance, silk is surprisingly comfortable. This versatile fabric absorbs moisture, making it cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Only pre-washed silk is machine washable so be sure to check the care label of the garment. For washable silk, machine wash in cool water using the hand wash or silk cycle. When hand washing silk garments, use mild soap and lukewarm water.
You can only machine dry pre-washed silk so be sure to check the care label of the garment before drying. To air dry, reshape the garment after washing and hang or lay flat to dry.
Use a delicate setting on a cool iron.
Store in a cool, dry place sealed against light, air and insects.
