David Lawrence talks us through how to best care for silk. With the right care, it will be one of your wardrobe staple for years. The two best ways to clean silk are by dry cleaning or hand washing with cold water. Dry cleaning is great if you’re pressed for time and hand washing provides the most cost effective solution.
Not only is silk flexible (meaning it has a slight stretch to contour your shape) but it’s the perfect option for summer – the fabric doesn’t trap heat and helps to keep you cool throughout the day.
