Your scarf comes with a dry-clean-only and iron at low temperature label. However, our wide experience working with silk allows us for to suggest that, if you prefer, you could wash the scarf with warm water and neutral and gentle soap without soaking the piece. To remove a standard stain, you can use diluted neutral soap and apply it gently through your fingertips with circular movements. Once the stain has disappeared wash the whole piece and rinse with plenty of cold water. Do not use hot water.
To dry your silk scarf, do not wring it out nor use the dryer. Lay the piece flat on a clean bath towel and then fold it over to remove the excess water. With your hands, press down on the folded towel up and down the length of the scarf. If necessary, repeat with new towels until the piece is damp instead of soaked. Let dry it flat on the towel without expose the piece to the sun due that the ultraviolet rays could damage the colours.
To help silk retain its texture and integrity, the fabric must always be damp when ironing. Check the iron has clean surface and iron your silk scarf at a the lowest temperature ( or at a “silk” setting if your iron comes with it) by the reverse of the piece, preferably with a press cloth between the silk and the iron. When ironing your silk scarf, focus on key areas of wrinkling. Gently press downward through the press cloth. Minimizing the length of time the iron is in contact with the fabric (even with the press cloth) will prevent the silk from burning. Do not press the hem hand-rolled to not to lose the natural movement of your scarf.
Be careful when applying perfume due that the alcohol could make stains on the silk; try to first apply on you the perfume and let the fabric be impregnated with your aroma.
If you don´t plan to use your scarf for a while (which is difficult) is better you keep it protected in a cloth storage bag and put it away from humidity.
If you follow this basic care instructions your silk scarf will last you for many years (or generations) and it will be one of your most favourite and treasured accessories.
