Hand washing and dry cleaning are always the best and safest method for washing silk.
Put It In Reverse: Prepare to wash by turning the item inside out. Wash with the same or like colors only.
Draw A Bath: Add two capfuls or a squirt of Delicate Lingerie or Silk Wash to a washbasin or sink filled with cool water.
Go Under: Submerge your item and gently agitate the water with your hand to evenly distribute soap and water. Soak for up to 30 minutes.
Rinse Clear: Run cool water through items until rinse water is no longer soapy. Do not wring. Instead, gently press the water out of your item between your hands or against the sink.
Note: If there is color in the water, don’t worry! This is normal and it is simply the yarn releasing color. You will not notice any loss of color in the end.
Immediately lay flat or hand to dry.
