Jasmine Silk bedding is easy to look after and lasts for years with just a little care. All our silk bed linen is machine washable – just follow these simple instructions.
Silk Bed Linen
Machine wash or hand wash at 30°C using a gentle, non-biological detergent specially created for washing silk, such as Tenestar. Hang up to dry and iron your silk bed linen while slightly damp, using a Cool iron on the inside setting. Always iron on the inside.
Do not tumble-dry silk, and never bleach or use any kind of bleaching agent. Bleach damages the silk fibre and will destroy silk bed linen.
Silk Duvets and Silk Pillows
Your silk-filled duvets and pillows will not need cleaning if you air them regularly each season to keep them fresh.
To air them, place your duvet or pillow in indirect sunlight for a few hours each season. This will revive the silk and help it to retain its lightness and fluffiness and also renew its insulating properties.
Silk naturally repels dust, dirt, dust mites, moths, mildew and odours so many silk experts recommend not cleaning silk duvets and pillows at all. If cleaning is really necessary, (for example if something has been spilled on it) we recommend professional dry cleaning only. Do not hand wash or machine wash your duvets or silk pillows as this will flatten the silk loft and reduce its natural benefits
We recommend you use a removable washable cover to protect your duvets and pillows. When not using your silk duvets and pillows, store them flat in a cool dry place in the bag provided.
Dry clean only.
Silk Eye Masks and Gloves
Machine wash at 30°C using gentle silk detergent or hand wash. Air dry and cool iron on the inside.
