Silk/wool scarves should be either dry cleaned or gently washed in cool water with a mild soap and rolled in a large towel to absorb water. Then lay the scarf on a dry towel to dry. With this particular blend of fibres, high contrast colours can bleed onto each other so I do not use high contrast colours with this particular silk/wool yarn. When completely dry, use a linen tea towel or press cloth over the scarf and iron with steam. It's best not to let hot steam water drip on the silk/wool yarns, thus the use of a press cloth.
