Care for Silk Duvets
Please read the sewn-in care labels. Properly maintained you will enjoy the warmth and breathability that silk has to offer for years to come.
Always use a duvet cover. A duvet cover is much easier to clean than a duvet, and regular cleaning will help keep your duvet clean. A properly covered silk duvet should not require cleaning under normal conditions of use.
A silk duvet should never be shaken strongly as this might displace the hand layered silk floss.
To keep your silk duvet fresh hang your duvet outside in warm dry conditions. We recommend that the duvet is regularly aired for a maximum of 1 hour out of direct sunlight.
Spots can be treated by immediately wiping the affected area with a clean white damp cloth. If the spillage has penetrated through to the silk floss, the area may be delicately hand washed using lukewarm water and a detergent suitable for washing woollens, and thoroughly rinsed using cold water. Excess water can be removed by gently squeezing the two faces of the duvet together. The duvet must never be wrung or tumble dried. The duvet should then be allowed to dry thoroughly and naturally, lying flat. After drying, the duvet may be shaken gently to restore the loft of the silk floss.
Do not hand wash in its entirety, machine wash, tumble dry or dry clean your silk duvet. Any washing of the duvet will cause it to lose some of its natural properties.
TIP: When not in use, your duvet should be stored in a breathable fabric cover. Plastic covers can trap moisture potentially leading to mildew problems.
