Each fabric comes with washing instructions; our materials include delicate natural fibres such as silk, so they should be treated with care to keep it looking beautiful.
What makes Fabric Collection Cotton Silk voile range unique is the easy-wash capabilities. The general advice is to Dry Clean Silk, BUT with a blend of only 30% Silk, you can certainly hand wash with a silk cleaner.
Be sure to use the correct cleaner — a pH neutral liquid cleaner is best recommended for silk. A general detergent is not recommended as this will damage the silk fibre. Gently hand washing your garment separately and inside-out in plenty of cold water is ideal. Rinse well and squeeze excess water. Avoid twisting to remove excess water as this will crease the fibres. Dry flat or use a soft hanger away from direct sunlight. Cool iron reverse side.
Here are the don'ts of washing Cotton Silk fabrics at home;
- Do not soak, bleach or wring
- Do not tumble dry
- Do not dry in direct sunlight
- Do not use hot water or a hot iron
