Authors of the newly released report say there are seven steps to properly washing silk so it will last for years.

Silk has always been considered a difficult fabric to care for. Advances in technologies, however, have led to machine-washable products that won’t lose their shape. Since MayfairSilk products are made with 25 momme, a unit of measurement that indicates a superior weave, and grade 6A Mulberry Silk, it is the highest quality of fine silk available today. This makes it easier to care for.

According to the report, it is important the detergent used to clean silk is pH neutral and designed for silk or wool. Fabrics should be turned inside-out before being placed into a washing machine set on the delicate cycle. Once bedding and nightwear are washed, it’s important to reshape them and then lay them to dry.

Unlike cotton, which absorbs 27 times its weight in water, silk absorbs only .3 times its weight. This not only makes silk beddings and nightwear better choices for skin and hair hydration but also reduces signs of ageing. Silk is hypoallergenic and antibacterial, and all MayfairSilk products are sustainably produced and biodegradable.

Winners of the 2021 Lux Global Excellence Award and members of the exclusive UK Fashion and Textile Association, MayfairSilk business practices prioritize top quality products that respect both their customers and the health of the planet.

A spokesperson for MayfairSilk says, “We are passionate about silk and bringing you the highest quality fabric with a modern European design. We are known for perfecting the weave with a unique soft-touch matte finish, so our products stand above all the rest.”

With the release of their report, the specialists at MayfairSilk are helping their customers, and those who’ve received their pillowcases, sheets, and other products as gifts, wash and maintain their fabrics to the highest standard so they’ll look as good 10 years down the road as they did when they came out of the box.
