Silk and Raw Silk


  • Consult the garment care label
  • Silk marked "Dry Clean Only" should not be washed
  • Washing silk which is deeply colored is risky as the colors may run
  • For washable silk garments, warm hand wash in a delicates or wool detergent
  • Warm iron when fabric is still slightly and evenly damp
  • For raw silk cool iron when dry


Trimmings on garments can affect how they are washed or which product is used. For example, if a garment has a leather collar the care label may say 'Dry Clean Only' even if the rest of the garment is washable.
