WASHING

Hand wash your scarf in COLD water. Any non-bleach detergent will do. Hang dry and press with a low heat setting.

 

 

RAW EDGES

You may notice that some of the edges on your scarf are raw. Every scarf in the Argaman & Defiance collections is made with 100% silk in a twill weave or stitched to prevent any further fraying. The twill weave means the fibers interlock with each other, and with a little wear the raw silk ends will felt and knot itself preventing the scarf from fraying. Do not pull or tug on any lose fibers, rather snip the stray fiber at the root of the scarf with a pair of sheers.  

 

FINE SILK vs. RAW SILK

Raw silk is silk that has not been stripped of sericin. Silk emitted by the silkworm consists mainly of two proteins, sericin and fibroin; fibroin being the structural center of the silk, and sericin being the gum coating the fibers and allowing them to stick to each other. As a result of having their sericin left on, raw silk is somewhat heavier in texture and not as lustrous as the fine silk that you will find in the majority of our collections.
