How to care - Your Elegant Silk Scarfs & Stoles

As with all beautiful natural things, your silk scarf should be handled with care. When you are not wearing it, fold it without creasing it and store it in a dry drawer or box. You can also hang it over a padded hanger in your closet. You can iron your scarf at low temperatures and dry clean only when it becomes soiled.

By putting herb sachets in the drawer where you keep your scarves; it keeps them fresh and acts as a moth repellant for Silk scarves. Infact, you can make your own herb sachets

How to make Herb sachets:

Mix together:
2 ounces each of dried rosemary, mint and lavender.
1 ounce of dried thyme
8 ounces of whole cloves

Sew together 3.5 inch square pouches of any tightly woven fabric. Fill with the dried herb mixture, tie the open end with a pretty ribbon, and place it in your drawers and closets.

With a minimal amount of care, your purchase will stay beautiful for many, many years.

What is Silk ???? - Tuesday, February 22, 2011

SILK - The Queen of Textiles, spells luxury, elegance, class and comfort. Exquisite qualities like the natural sheen, inherent affinity for dyes and vibrant colors, high absorbance, light weight, resilience and excellent drape etc. have made silk, the irresistible and inevitable companion of the eve, all over the world.

 

Chemically speaking, silk is made of proteins secreted in the fluid state  by a caterpillar, popularly known as 'silkworm'. These silkworms feed on the selected food plants and spin cocoons as a 'protective shell' to perpetuate the life. Silkworm has four stages in its life cycle viz., egg, caterpillar, pupa, (cocoon)and moth. Man interferes this life cycle at the cocoon stage to obtain the silk, a continuous filament of commercial importance, used in weaving of the dream fabric.
