Maintenance of silk products
Silk duvets and pillows
Silk duvets are not machine washable, but can be cleaned instead.
As with other duvets, it is a good idea to ventilate the silk duvet regularly - preferably in frosty weather, and not in direct sunlight.
The longer you use the silk duvet, the more comfortable it will be to sleep with.
Silk bedding can be machine washed on a gentle program at 30-40˚C.
Use only silk detergents that do not contain enzymes.
When washing, duvet covers should be turned inside out.
Never use fabric softener rinse aid.
Ironing should be done before the bedding is completely dry.
Silk bedding does not tolerate drying.
