Silk Sheet Set

  1. Machine Wash: Place your silk sheet set in the washing machine on a delicate or silk-specific cycle.

  2. Gentle Detergent: Use a mild detergent specifically designed for silk or delicate fabrics. Avoid using bleach or any harsh chemicals.

  3. Cold Water: Wash your silk sheets in cold water. Hot water can damage the silk fibers and cause shrinkage.

  4. Separate Colors: If you have colored silk sheets, wash them separately from other items to prevent color bleeding from other items.

  5. Delicate Cycle: Select a gentle or delicate cycle with a low spin speed to minimize agitation.

  6. Avoid Overloading: Don't overload the washing machine. This ensures that your silk sheets have enough space to move freely and prevents excessive wrinkling or stretching.

  7. Air Dry: After washing, avoid using a dryer. Instead, lay your silk sheets flat to air dry on a clean towel or hang them up to dry. Avoid direct sunlight as it can fade the color.

  8. Ironing: If needed, iron your silk sheets on the lowest heat setting. Always use a clean cloth as a protective barrier between the iron and the silk to prevent damage.

By following these care instructions, you can help maintain the quality and longevity of your silk sheet set.
