Frequently Asked Questions
How should I care for my silk quilt?
1 - Keep your quilt out of direct sunlight. Ultraviolet light speeds up the deterioration of fibers and dyes.
2 - Vacuum your quilt about once a year to remove dust. Screening material can be used to cover your quilt while vacuuming.
3 - Place your quilt only next to non-acidic surfaces - never next to cardboard, unsealed wood or acidic paper.
4 - Iron your silk on a medium silk setting and avoid water "spits" from the iron that can stain the silk.
If I want to wash my silk quilt how should I go about this?
1 - Just like cotton or wool, some silk dyes will bleed. Therefore, if you plan on washing your silk quilt, test wash a small piece of each fabric you plan on using. If a fabric bleeds do not use it in your quilt.
2 - Also, just like cotton and wool, silk shrinks. Therefore, if you plan on washing your silk quilt, prewash all of the fabric before sewing.
3 - Hand washing, using a mild soap, is preferable to machine washing.
4 - Remove excess water from your quilt by pressing on the quilt with towels. Do NOT wring dry.
