 CARING FOR YOUR PURCHASE

THIS IS SUPER EASY!

SILKS FOLLOW THE BELOW DIRECTIONS:

FIRST, ALWAYS WASH DELICATE ITEMS IN COLD WATER AND SEPARATELY USING A MILD DETERGENT WITHOUT BLEACH, WHITENERS OR SCENT-KEEP IT PURE AND SIMPLE. YOU CAN HAND WASH IN A SINK AND RINSE OR IN YOUR WASHING MACHINE SET ON DELICATE OR SPEED WASH.

NOTE TO SELF: DEFINITELY WASH YOUR INDIGO PURCHASE ALONE SINCE NATURAL INDIGO HAS THE TENDENCY TO BLEED IN THE WASH-UNLESS YOU LIKE YOUR WHITES TINTED BLUE LIKE MY NONNA’S HAIR…….

NEXT, LAY FLAT (IF YOU HAVE THE SPACE) OR HANG TO AIR DRY. I DO LIKE TO DRY ITEMS OUTDOORS BUT KEEP YOUR PURCHASE OUT OF THE SUN SINCE THAT WILL SIGNIFICANTLY FADE THE NATURAL COLORS

FINALLY, GO AHEAD AND IRON IT. YES-IRON IT WITH SOME STEAM! BUT KEEP THE IRON MOVING AND STAY FOCUSED (DON’T WALK AWAY TO MAKE AN ESPRESSO…..) BELIEVE IT OR NOT A WARM TO HOT IRON HELPS TO POLISH THE FIBERS RETURNING THE SILK TO ITS LUSTROUS AND SMOOTH SELF AGAIN AND A LITTLE BIT OF STEAM REMOVES THE WRINKLES.

CASHMERE, ALPACA, WOOLS

HAND WASH SEPARATELY IN COLD WATER WITH A MILD DETERGENT SUCH AS WOOLITE, RINSE WELL AND DON’T WRING OR TWIST. OUR SCARVES ARE HAND LOOMED AND CAN EASILY BE STRETCHED OUT OF SHAPE!

LAY FLAT TO DRY, AND IF YOU CHOOSE TO DRY OUTDOORS KEEP IT OUT OF THE PRYING RAYS OF THE SUN!

FINALLY, IRON ON STEAM SETTING TO SMOOTH THE YARNS DOWN AND REMOVE ANY WRINKLES. HERE IS WHERE YOU CAN RESHAPE OR STRAIGHTEN EDGES (IF YOU HAVE HUNG TO DRY) BY GENTLY COAXING THE FABRIC INTO PLACE.

VELVET

HAND WASH SEPERATLY IN COLD WATER AND A MILD DETERGENT SUCH AS OOLITE OR AN UNSCENTED, NO BLEACH OR WHITENERS KIND OF DETERGENT-KEEP IT SIMPLE. ITS BETTER FOR YOU TOO! YES, THE WASHING MACHINE IS OKAY TO USE, JUST SET ON HAND WASH OR DELICATE

NEXT, PULL YOUR VELVETS OUT OF THE MACHINE AND HANG TO DRY. IF YOU HAVE PURCHASED A SKIRT OR PANTS, PLEASE USE THE LOOPS TO SUSPEND THE GARMENT FROM A HANGER. SKIRT AND PANT CLIPS WILL CRUSH THE VELVET AND CAUSE PERMANENT MARKS.

FINALLY, DON’T PRESS YOUR VELVET!!! YOU CAN’T IRON VELVET BUT IF YOU HAVE SOME WRINKLES, TURN THE GARMENT INSIDE OUT AND WHILE STILL HANGING GENTLY USE THE STEAM SETTING ON YOUR IRON AND AIM IT AT THE SPOTS THAT ARE WRINKLED WHILE PRESSING THE STEAM BUTTON TO EXPELL SOME HOT MOISTURE. THIS SHOULD HELP TO RELEASE AND SMOOTH OUT THE LINES
