Thanks to its temperature regulating properties, a silk shirt will make you feel comfortable both in cold and warm weather. Don’t be scared when it comes to handling silk garments – despite their luxurious feel and delicate nature, they are pretty easy to take care of.
Air your silk shirt after every wear and treat it to a spritz of our fabric spray with its wind-dried laundry inspired scent.
WASH & DRY
Always check the care label if the silk garment you own is washable. Almost all our silk shirts can be put in a washing machine. If you get a stain on your silk shirt, avoid rubbing it as this might damage the material. Instead, wash in the gentle cycle of your washing machine at a maximum temperature of 30 degrees, preferably use a wash bag.
Make sure to use an enzyme-free detergent like our Delicate Detergent, which strengthens fabric fibres during laundering. If you choose to hand wash your silk shirt, you can use a small amount of your own hair shampoo as an alternative. Air-dry on a hanger, while avoiding direct heat or sun. The gentlest way to get rid of wrinkles is to steam your silk garments, but you can iron them at a low temperature.
Store your favourite silk blouses on a hanger in a dark place to protect the colours. If you pack them away for a longer period, fold the garment.
