Frequently asked questions

How do I care for a silk scarf?

Silk is a natural protein fiber, and so easy to care for. Just hand wash in cool water with a bit of baby shampoo, rinse, and wrap in a towel to remove excess water. Then just lay out until dry. Lightly iron if needed.

How do I care for handwovens?

All of my handwoven items are made with natural plant yarn fibers, cotton, bamboo, linen, and tencel, or protein fibers such as silk and wool. They have all been wet finished to lock the fibers together and remove any residue from the yarn. Hand washing with a bit of baby shampoo and warm water and minimal agitation is all that is needed to maintain a beautiful textile. After the wash, gently roll up n a towel to remove excess water and lay on a towel to dry. Handwoven textiles will last much longer when treated gently. Think of it as slow washing for slowly made textiles. :)

How do I care for wool textiles?

Wool is a protein fiber, so care for it in the same wayre for your hair. Stay away from hot water and excessive agitation, both will cause your scarf to either shrink or to felt. A cool water bath with a bit of baby shampoo, roll up in a towel to remove excess water, and lay out to dry.
