When it comes to silk dresses, Lyst has you covered. Each piece is crafted with care and every detail is carefully considered. Combining a minimalist design with expert craftsmanship, it’s easy to see why these pieces are so popular. Regular care and maintenance will help keep silk in its original condition for longer. Knowing how to clean your silk dresses will make sure the material stays looking good as new for years. We would advise carefully following the care instructions found on each individual item’s label. Some silk products are labelled as strictly ‘Dry Clean Only’, while others have ‘Dry Clean’ as the recommended cleaning method but may also be hand washed or machine washed. Hand wash using specific, mild detergents and cool water in order to protect silk’s natural properties. Leave to soak for no more than five minutes, and rinse well. Never wring out silk items, and do not put in the tumble dryer. Instead, leave to air dry naturally. If machine washing is advised on the item’s care label, choose a gentle, lower-temperature spin cycle. Turn your silk garment inside out, and iron on the lowest heat while it is still damp.
