Silk is a luxury fibre. Whilst delicate, it is extremely strong and hard wearing. Treated properly it will retain its good looks and feel. It will give excellent value and long service. All silks can be drycleaned. Many silks can be gently hand washed. Wash or dryclean silk regularly before the garment becomes too soiled as this can cause a breakdown of the fibres.
Hand wash in luke warm water, using a liquid detergent. Rinse well in warm then cold water.
Add half a cup of vinegar to final rinse. This brings back the silks' natural sheen.
Dry away from direct sunlight or roll in a towel and iron whilst still damp.
