    How to Care for Raw Silk Fabric



    Wash raw silk by hand in a basin using a mild detergent and warm water (place a capful of detergent in running warm water and allow suds to form).

    Place the silk garment into the sudsy water and gently move the fabric around in the water.
    Empty t
    The soapy water out of the basin and run clean cold water back into it.

    Rinse the silk garment by swishing it around in the cool water. You may also add 1/4 cup of white vinegar to the rinse water. The vinegar loosens any soap residue left on the fabric. If you add the white vinegar to the rinse water, rinse the fabric again in fresh water afterward.

    Squeeze the water gently out of the silk fabric. Do not wring the garment to get the water out.

    Lay open a towel and place the silk garment onto it. Roll or fold the towel with the silk garment inside. The towel absorbs the excess water.


    • Place your iron on the lowest heat setting. Turn your garment inside out. Test your iron on an area of the silk garment that is not easily seen, to make sure that it does not hurt the fabric. Iron the garment the rest of the way dry
    • Store your raw silk garments in an area where moths cannot attack the fabric. Place cedar blocks in closets or drawers to repel moths.

    Tips & Warnings

    • You may also dry clean raw silk garments.
    • Do not store raw silk in plastic garment bags, as moisture may develop and damage the fragile fabric.
    • Do not store raw silk in direct sunlight, as the sun's rays may fade the color of the fabric.
