Your pure silk scarf should either be dry cleaned or washed by hand only in water approximately at blood heat using a small amount of liquid soap. Rinse in cold water then squeeze out gently – do not wring. Pad off excess moisture by placing it flat between two towels. For the best finish iron on the reverse side while still damp with a medium to hot iron. Iron up to the hand rolled edge, taking care not to flatten it.
