Washing silk kind of intimidates some people. But really, it’s simple and worth the small effort: Fill the bathroom sink with cool water and a small squirt of mild, pH balanced shampoo. Add the silk item, and go do something else while it soaks. Rinse in clear water with a small splash of white vinegar. Blot dry with a bath towel. Line dry until slightly damp while you have a cup of tea. Then press with a dry iron (no steam) on the silk setting.
This scarf is washed, ironed, listed on Etsy, and ready to ship. It’s a collage of naturally dyed silks, including the bodice of one silk blouse and a sleeve from another. You can see the placket at the cuff in this photo.
