Silk is one of our favourite fabrics at Papinelle, with its feminine, luxurious feel, natural, renewable nature and flattering drape.
Silk is also a thermoregulating fibre, meaning it is equally suitable for cooler nights or those warmer Australian summer nights. But the best part? Our silk is now machine-washable! We have recently made the move to machine-washable on a number of our silk collections so our customers can enjoy the luxury of silk with easier care properties.
While hand-washing is preferred, you can now follow the steps below on our ‘Machine-Washable Silk’ collection to have silk sleepwear that is sure to last:
We recommend washing your silk in a laundry bag, as this will keep the sheen and colour looking brighter.
Use a small amount of a mild detergent. We love The Laundress’s ‘Delicate Wash’ for silk.
Always machine-wash on a delicate cycle in cold water. Silk will not tolerate heat and may shrink in a hot cycle.
Dry flat in the shade.
Final Step? Wear them! Silk is likely to crinkle after a wash, it’s part of its nature, but the best way to prevent this is to wear them! Silk is a natural fibre and the oils from your body will help soften it up after a wash. The ultimate in natural luxury, your silk sleepwear will have you feeling like a goddess every night!
