Scarf Care

Caring For Your  Silk Or Blended Polyester Silk Scarf.

When starting, you'll want to make sure to read the detergent label before using it on your silk blended. Words like “suitable for silk” and “delicates” are your best friends when it comes to washing silk by hand. Bleach will damage your silk’s fibers so it’s always a big NO.

⦁ Place your silk scarf in cold water with a mild silk-friendly detergent.
⦁ Leave to soak (no more than 5 minutes).
⦁ Swish the scarf slowly and gently.
⦁ Rinse with fresh water
⦁ To help keep its hydrated feel, use a fabric conditioner in the final rinse (or even a small amount of hair conditioner).
⦁ Rinse well in cold water.
⦁ Ball your scarf together to remove excess moisture (wringing your silk out will damage it’s fibers). Then lay it flat and roll it in a towel to absorb any lingering moisture.
⦁ Lay flat to dry.
⦁ If your scarf has a stain, please take it to the dry cleaners for proper care to avoid fiber damage. Do Not Try To Rub It Out.

⦁ To dry your scarf, lay it out on a towel, fold the towel in half and press down gently to remove excess water – never spin-dry it and avoid wringing it out as this will damage the fibers and distort the shape.
⦁ Hang your scarf out of direct sunlight and allow it to dry naturally.
⦁ The best way to remove wrinkles or fold lines is to lightly steam them but if you don’t have a steamer and wish to use an iron, do so on the back of the scarf placing a protective ironing sheet or pillowcase over the fabric to protect it. Iron on the silk setting (or if you don’t have that just keep it on the lowest setting) to avoid burning the material and empty the iron of all water so you don’t accidentally leave watermarks.
