Caring For Your Silk Pyjamas

  1. Hand Washing or Delicate Cycle: Always refer to the care instructions on the garment's label. Generally, it's recommended to hand wash silk pyjamas using a mild detergent or use the delicate cycle on your washing machine. Avoid harsh detergents or bleach that can damage the delicate silk fibers.

  2. Use Cold Water: Wash silk pyjamas in cold water to preserve the fabric's quality and prevent shrinking. Hot water can damage the silk fibers and affect the colors.

  3. Gentle Handling: Handle silk garments gently. Avoid wringing or twisting them as it can damage the fabric. Instead, gently press the water out without stretching the material.

  4. Avoid Direct Sunlight: After washing, air-dry your silk pyjamas in a shaded area away from direct sunlight. Direct sunlight can fade the vibrant colors of the designs and weaken the silk fibers.

  5. Ironing: If needed, iron your silk pyjamas inside out while they are still slightly damp using a low-temperature setting. Ironing on the wrong side helps preserve the colors and prevents direct heat damage to the fabric.

  6. Storage: Store your Karen Mabon silk pyjamas in a dry and cool place. Avoid hanging them in direct sunlight or in areas prone to moisture as it can lead to discoloration or mildew.

  7. Avoid Contact with Harsh Substances: Keep your silk pyjamas away from perfumes, cosmetics, and harsh chemicals. These substances can stain or damage the delicate silk fabric.

  8. Professional Cleaning: For tough stains or if you're unsure about cleaning, consider professional dry cleaning to ensure proper care for your silk sleepwear.

By following these care instructions, you can help maintain the quality, colors, and softness of your Karen Mabon silk pyjamas, ensuring they remain a luxurious and comfortable addition to your sleepwear collection for a long time.
