Recommendations for care
Silk is a protein and is comparable with our hair. So should apply - what we do not want to hurt us, we will not want to hurt our silk. There are commercially special silk shampoo for cleaning but I use a high quality hair shampoo.
Never spray the silk with perfume or deodorant
Do not expose silk for a long time strong sunlight directly
My Grannies Housewives Tips
Hand washing is possible.Wet silk is very sensitive and therefore handle them carefully.
Wash Maharaja Lace yarn only in lukewarm water,
move the silk to the water easily - without soaking,
to remove all soap residue flush in cold water with a dash (teaspoon) of vinegar (colorless),
then roll it in a towel to remove the moisture,
unroll the silk, gently pull into shape (if necessary) and dry flat,
If necessary, moderately warm iron from the left (backside)
Never moisten silk with steam or a spray bottle, (you get water stains that only can be removed by washing)
