By taking time to care for your silk, you’ll ensure your item remains beautiful for years to come. Knowing how to clean your silk jackets will make sure the material stays looking good as new for years. We would always recommend checking the instructions on the care label of your item before attempting to clean as some silks are washable, and for others dry cleaning is recommended. Dry cleaning silk garments isn’t always necessary, and most items are suitable for hand washing if done carefully. If you do decide to hand wash silk, use cool or lukewarm water, and add a small amount of detergent designed for delicate fabrics. Rinse away any soap, and remove any excess water without wringing or twisting. Leave to soak for a few minutes, rinse clean and press out any excess water. Do not use the tumble dryer, instead lay flat to air dry away from direct sunlight. If you need to clean in the machine, first place in a laundry bag, select a delicate, cold-water cycle and remove promptly once the cycle has finished to reduce wrinkles. If the care label on your silk item says that it can be ironed, then use a low iron setting and ideally iron while it is still slightly damp.
