How to care for Bamboo Silk
Hand washing your silk is the best practice. Silk is a naturally delicate fabric and should be worn and washed with extra love and care. We recommend filling your sink or tub with lukewarm water and a small amount of delicate silk wash. Use your hands to gently clean the garments and make sure you rinse thoroughly. Avoid twisting or wringing the fabric and be sure not to use hot water as this treatment can harm the delicate fibers causing pulls.
Machine Wash with Care
While we recommend only hand washing, if you trust your machine's delicate wash setting, this is a good option if you don't have time to hand wash. Water should be tepid or cold. We recommend washing at no higher than 30 degrees as anything hotter can make the fabric harden, become brittle, and can tear more easily.
Air Dry Your Silks
Silk should be hung to air dry. Be sure you use soft hangers or padded hangers. Keep your silks away from direct heat or sunlight. Once dry, silk should be ironed using low heat or steamed to restore the sheen and softness of the fabric.
