Silk is a precious and delicate material, that becomes even more fragile once wet, that is why we recommend hand washing rather than machine washing.
If you opt for a hand wash, use cold rather than luke warm water. Be careful not to press or wrinkle it and don’t let it soak for too long (3 to 5 minutes max). Preferably, use liquid soap because powered soap can stain your clothes.
We don’t recommend it, but if you opt for a machine wash, please use the program “hand wash in cold water” and take care to wash your garment with other items so to not damage it. Use a very soft soap. If you do not have a “hand wash in cold water” program, do not use your washing machine as heat is silk’s enemy.
