Silk is a delicate material and should be treated as such. Let garment labels guide you when cleaning silk garments. “Dry-clean only” signals a fabric or construction that will not survive washing. Launder washable silk garments using products formulated for hand washing or delicate fabrics. Mild baby shampoo without conditioning is a good choice for hand-washable silk fabrics. It will clean the natural protein and revitalize the fiber.
Cashmere garments usually don’t have to be washed that often – try airing and spot cleaning them first. Use a detergent for delicate when you do wash them. Because it is soft and fuzzy, cashmere can be prone to pilling, caused by rubbing during regular use. Although this is perfectly normal, we suggest that you treat your cashmere with extra care and wash it by hand with shampoo in case needed. To dry, lay flat on a towel, away from sunlight or heat. Taking extra care to glide across the fabric and not press down too hard.
Same as cashmere, woollen garments usually don’t have to be washed that often – try airing and spot cleaning them first. In the natural state, wool is washable, but because many wool garments incorporate construction methods that cannot be washed, dry-clean wool clothing where the label requires. If washable, use a gentle detergent and hand wash or machine-wash as directed by the clothing care label. To avoid stretching the wool fibres, don’t wring wool clothes and always dry them flat. Ironing after washing helps to restore the material’s natural sheen – use a steam iron on the wool setting and a pressing cloth.
Cotton is a worldwide favorite for comfortable, versatile clothing. Remove the garment from washing machine promptly to reduce wrinkling. Press using spray starch for the crispness of a laundered shirt. Check the washing instructions on each garment for specific instructions.
