Care Instructions for Mulberry Silk bedding

Congratulations on the purchase of your new Mulberry Silk Pillowcase and bedding.  If you follow these care instructions for your new silk, your purchase will stay looking lovely for much longer.

Mulberry silk is delicate in nature, but if you can take a little extra care with your new bedding you will get a longer life out of it – and the longer it will keep its silky texture and sheen.

Silk is always best to tepid warm hand wash if possible (20-25 degrees).  Second to hand washing is to use a delicates bag in your washing machine on a cool/warm delicate cycle with similar colours (for smaller items like pillowcases and eye masks). 

Always wash in lukewarm water under 25 degrees celsius 20 to 25 c is optimal silk.  Please be mindful of winter water on a cold wash as this can depend on your local weather.  Some areas winters are colder so washing in machine cycle with cold water can be colder again and silk does not like extreme temp either hot or cold.

Make sure you choose a ph neutral, gentle wash detergent.  One that states on the container that is is suitable for silk.  Never use bleach or enzyme products or any products containing bleach, many detergents now contain these and they can strip the beautiful silk sheen quicker.  Always make sure you rinse the detergent from your silk properly.  Detergent overuse or buildup can cause dulling of your silks shine.

Never use a tumble dryer for your silk.  Dry it flat in the shade, and if you need to iron make sure your iron is very carefully on the lowest setting.  Always iron your silk pillowcase on the inside.

Washing larger items like sheets and quilt covers.  These do not need to be placed in a bag as this can cause extra friction on the silk.  Please be mindful not to overfill the machine and cause excess rubbing on the silk.

Keeping your wash machine clean.

Please keep in mind that fabric softener and other detergents can build up on your washing machine.  This can affect your silk when you use your machine.  Please reduce the use of fabric softeners and enzyme products in your machine and make sure you give your machine a good clean with a hot vinegar rinse (or whatever is recommended by the washing machine manufacturer) on a regular basis.

Care instructions for silk quilts

Care instructions will vary depending on which Lujo Home silk quilt you purchase.  Our summer/mid quilts are able to be machine washed.  Washing should be on the most gently setting.  Using a silk approved detergent, in luke warm / cold water under 30 degrees celcius.

Our mid to winter quilts are recommended to be a dry clean only due to the extra silk filling.
