Scarves are delicate accessories and should be treated as such. At Les Sûtras we are often asked about the best ways to care for your scarves and here we have tried to put together some useful tips and tricks to help you along.
Our scarves come in a variety of authentic materials, colours and prints. The care instructions may differ based on their material. But by and large, it is important that you treat your scarves as gently as you can.
Our silk scarves are either pure silk or a combination of silk and wool. It is not always necessary to wash your scarves.
Silk scarves are lightweight and extremely smooth to the touch. There is a textural difference based on the type of silk used. Les Sûtras offers both printed silk and pashmina silk scarves for you to choose from.
Most of the time, airing them is more than enough, however, if you do wish to clean your silk scarves:
Store silk scarves in a cool dry place, folded, rolled or tied on a hanger.
At Les Sûtras we have scarves made of different types of wool. Our Lamb’s wool scarves are warm and hardy but need to be handled with care nevertheless.
Pashmina is a speciality material sourced from a special breed of sheep that are reared and raised in the northernmost regions of India. The Pashmina sheep have a soft silky coat of hair that is finer than human hair. Being lightweight and warm at the same time, this coat imparts its characteristic luxurious and light warmth to the material itself.
We also have a large range of Cashmere scarves that are characterised by their fine silky texture and warmth. To maintain the smooth delicate feel of these scarves some care needs to be taken
Cotton and Modal scarves are definitely more hardy than the woollen and silk scarves but we nevertheless recommend that you dry clean them to protect their longevity.
