Caring for your scarf

If you have recently bought one of my scarves or are lucky enough to have been given one as a gift, here’s a few extra thoughts on caring for it:

The more you wear it, the more it softens and becomes you. Many of my scarves have a frayed edge – don’t be afraid to pull off any loose threads, it will add to the pretty, distressed, natural look. 

Ideally just air your scarf after wearing it by hanging it up. We over wash our clothes these days and scarves aren’t likely to get very dirty!  That said, silk, linen and nylon are pretty tough fabrics and so it’s fine to wash them, but please do it gently, on a hand wash setting, with a gentle, non-bio powder. Then use a little eco fabric softner in the final rinse. 

They may be ironed, but the parachute silk nylon needs extra care and a very low setting. 

I hope you enjoy wearing for many years and feel good that it was made without causing any environmental damage.
