Indian Silk Washing Instructions

Please note that this yarn is hand dyed by several different independent dyers in small batches so there may be considerable variation in dye lots. This means that the colours on the shade card and website are not always identical to current stock. Be sure to order sufficient for your project.

The yarn is dyed to commercial standards but is not guaranteed to be colour fast. This means that some colours, by no means all, may run when washed. Please bear this in mind when planning a project. We always recommend weaving and wet finishing a sample before embarking on your project.

We recommend using “colour catchers” when wet finishing as they will help capture any loose dye if present.

Hand wash in lukewarm water using a gentle detergent suitable for silk, do not soak. Roll in a towel to absorb excess water. Press to set the weaving and then iron with steam to improve lustre and drape. Silk can be dry cleaned.

If you have any problems with this yarn please let us know, we constantly work with our suppliers to improve the quality of our products.
