Fine linen scarves and jackets should be washed gently by hand. Put the item in cool or tepid water that has gentle soap in it. Gently press down on the item repeatedly and squeeze, not wring, the water out. You can roll up your item in a bath towel to absorb a lot of the water and then lay it on a dry bath towel to dry or hang it on a plastic hanger (not wood or metal in case of staining). If you can catch your item while still damp, it makes ironing a lot easier. In either case, dry or damp, iron on the linen setting with steam. You can also dry clean these items.
