These beautiful organic silks are harvested from an organic mulberry orchard in Hertfordshire. The silkworms feed off the mulberry leaves and provide the organic silk cocoons.
This process was monitored by the Soil Association, which awarded the certification for Organic Silk in 2014.
No detergents or bleaches are used in the production, nor are the silkworms fed with hormone enhancements, (This is common practice by many producers.)
Dry clean or hand wash (recommended). Machine wash on gentle cycle, with mild soap and warm water. Tumble dry on low heat, or iron dry from a barely damp state. Never use bleach on silk.
Please get in touch if you would like to order larger quantities.
