                                                                                      FAQ

                                                                                      1. What is washable silk?

                                                                                      Love silk but can’t be bothered with trips to the dry-cleaner? Us too. We’ve searched the world’s leading factories to source the highest quality silk that can be thrown in the washing machine with all your other laundry. The best part? It comes out looking just as good as when it went in - smooth, soft and beautifully draped. There’s also no need to air dry. Our washable silk can be tumble dried for extra ease.

                                                                                      2. Is it OK to get silk wet?

                                                                                      Traditional silk really doesn’t like water. Water weakens the fibres and results in stains and discoloration. That means never washing your favorite silk pieces by hand, always dry-cleaning. Which, let’s face it, is completely impractical. That’s why we’ve created a line of washable silk that delivers on smooth texture, incredible softness, and premium draping. But best of all, it can be worn as much as you like and washed with all your other laundry.

                                                                                      3. How do you wash silk by hand?

                                                                                      If you’re looking to avoid trips to the dry-cleaner with your favorite silk blouse or dress, it’s possible to wash silk by hand, but only if the silk quality is very high. Lower quality silks will be adversely affected by the water, resulting in stains and discoloration. If your silk feels full and doesn’t crease in your hand then the quality is higher. Or if your silk is “washable” then it can be cleaned any way you prefer.

                                                                                      4. How do you care for silk after washing it?

                                                                                      If you’ve washed your traditional silk by hand, it’s best to air dry on a hanger. Our washable silk pieces can be washed and dried the same way you care for your other laundry on a low-temperature wash, and normal tumble-dry setting.

                                                                                      5. Does silk dry quickly?

                                                                                      Traditional silk can be air dried or rinsed and then ironed dry while still damp. Washable silk can be dried the same way you dry your other laundry – by air or in the tumble dryer.

                                                                                      6. Does silk shrink if you wash it?

                                                                                      Some traditional silk is pre-washed to avoid shrinkage. If not, then yes silk can shrink when it gets wet. Our collection of washable silk pieces is made to be washed and dried without ever shrinking.
