Detailed care instructions are included with each of our garments. We want to help you keep your pieces in good condition, and proper care is the key.
Silk is delicate so treat it gently. As a general rule avoid friction and strain to keep it in it’s best condition.
We recommend steaming. If you do need to press your silk garment use the low setting on the iron. Use a press cloth if you have one — really any plain clean fabric will work…a clean pillow case can work in a pinch.
Hand wash -
This is our preferred method. Use a soap made for silk (we like The Laundress delicate wash) so you don’t damage the fabric.
DO NOT scrub or wring your silk garments. Remember, no friction or strain note above? It will damage the fabric so take it easy.
We know…life is busy and sometimes this is more convenient. If you must, you can wash silk in the machine on a delicate cycle with silk detergent.
Because silk is very delicate even a gentle cycle can be rough on it. Using a mesh bag helps to reduce friction and snags.
Wool is made of keratin, the same protein as human hair. It’s a really resilient fiber, and washing wool can actually be good for it. As a general rule avoid friction and heat. Much like the hair on your head this damages the fiber. Never put your wool garment in the dryer...unless you want it to come out half it's original size.
We recommend steaming to maintain it's shape. If you do need to press your wool garment use a press cloth to help protect the fabric.
Hand wash -
This is our preferred method. Use a soap made for wools (we like The Laundress wool and cashmere shampoo) so you don’t damage the fabric.
DO NOT scrub, wring, bleach or machine dry your wool garments.
Note - We do not recommend machine washing your wool garments. Even in a mesh bag the wash cycle agitates the fabric too much.
