How to care for my Lost Pattern silk?
Silk is an investment which you can wear for a long time. How you care for your silk helps it's longevity. It is a very durable, yet delicate fabric and most of us get scared about the idea of caring for it. Fortunately, it is actually not as difficult as you may have thought. Here are some tips to make this process a breeze!
- We do not recommend machine washing.
- Hand washing your silk is preferable. Add silk detergent or delicate wash detergent into fresh, cold water, and wash your silk in it. Be gentle to your silk, do not rub, squeeze or twist it. Rinse to wash away the detergent. You may add fabric conditioner in the final rinse to hydrate your silk item.
- Do not soak your silk.
-Do not mix it with other items or even silk in different colors. We recommend washing one piece at a time.
- Never use bleach on your silk.
- Tumble drying or spinning the silk item in the dryer will damage the silk, so do not use a dryer.
- To dry your silk, press between a clean towel to remove excess water. Hang dry or lay flat to dry. Avoid direct sunlight exposure.
- If you have to iron your silk, use low heat or steam to keep your pieces wrinkle-free. Flip your silk inside out and only iron the inside of it. Do not iron your silk when it is wet. You can place a cloth in between your silk and the iron for protection.

They use the highest grade proprietary blend natural cotton and natural rubber elastic. Their elastic is chlorine resistant and heat treated making it suitable for greater longevity when/if washed and dried and/or used in pools and hot tubes. While the elastic is designed to have greater longevity in these circumstances, doing so will breakdown any elastic at a faster rate than its natural lifespan.
Their fabrics are sourced from domestic suppliers with a focus on high quality, luxe designs. While some of their materials are well suited for repeat wash and dryer cycles, many are not. Please take care in reviewing the below instructions. It’s important to note that damage to an item resulting from an attempt to clean is the responsibility of the customer.
TIPS TO MAINTAIN GREATEST PRODUCT LONGEVITY
Play it safe
As a primary cleaning tip, we recommend spot cleaning as needed.
Spot cleaning not cutting it?
If your hair tie or scrunchie is really dirty, they recommend hand washing in cold to lukewarm water and,if needed, a gentle detergent. Rinse thoroughly, squeeze out excess water and lay flat to dry. If you must put it in the washing machine, they recommend putting it in a delicates bag, and washing on a delicate cycle with like colours. Lay flat to dry.
Note: All fabrics react differently to wear and washing. Both may result in some colour fading over time.
Dyed fabrics have the potential to bleed dyes when wet, especially brighter colours. *Fabric and product dependant, a gentle and cold wash/rinse cycle can help set colours. Lay flat to dry.
