As a naturally delicate fabric, we suggest that you always have it professionally cleaned or wash by hand with mild detergent made especially for silk as normal detergent can destroy the silk fibres.
Cotton is fully machine washable. To maintain light colours and keep them bright, it’s a good idea to pre-treat stains in areas such as underarms, necklines, and cuffs.
Wools don’t need washing as often as other fibres might, in fact, they will last a lot longer between washes if you don’t. Here are a few things you can do instead:
- Air it out – simply hang out your garment, many types of wool have anti-bacterial properties already in the fibre and will self-clean.
- Spot clean – why clean the whole garment if only a small area needs it? And when doing this, be careful not to use too much concentrated detergent as this can damage the material.
