Is There a Washable Silk?
Yes, luckily there is!
We all love silk. It’s a timeless fabric with some amazing properties to appreciate and adore. However, with those beautiful attributes of the fabric, cleaning your pieces has always been a bit of an issue, hasn’t it? Well, you’re not alone…
You might have resigned to hand washing your pieces in cold water and shampoo, which can work.
Or you might have developed a love/hate relationship with your local dry cleaner — to the point you wish you didn’t have so many opportunities to get to know them so well.
Either way, what if you knew that your favorite sleep and loungewear had the ability to be (safely) tossed in your washing machine?
Welcome to Eberjey’s refined collection of washable silk pajamas, sleep, and loungewear.
Which Silk is Washable?
At Eberjey, all of our silk pieces are washable. This makes our entire collection of luxurious sleepwear sustainable, biodegradable, hypoallergenic, and machine washable.
Choosing your silk sets is as easy as aligning with your inner style; your intimate, evening modus operandi. We want you to have something rich and luxurious for you to adore during the most comfortable moments of your 24hours.
What is the Difference Between Silk and Washable Silk?
Generally, washable silk is less sheer and more durable than regular silk. Also, the dying process is usually conducted after the garment has been constructed. This tends to make the colors richer, more profound, and ‘colorfast’ (meaning they won’t run).
If you tried to clean a traditional piece of silk in a machine, it would be absolutely ruined to the point of being unrecognizable.
Though our silk can be added to your machine to wash on the delicate setting, it’s always a great idea to include your pieces in a ‘delicates’ bag as well. This will reduce some of the stresses of the process.
Of course, you’ll want to air dry your pieces on padded hangers, and out of direct sunlight. Follow these tenets and your washable silk pieces from Eberyjey will serve to drape and look great on you for years to come.
What is Washable Silk Made of?
100% (Washable) Silk. Our silk fabric is also Bluesign®-Certified. This means it’s manufactured with the lowest possible impact on the environment.
A dream to wear and a simple to wash. Washable Silk is the smoothest fabric to join our luxurious silk sleep collection. Our silk has a momme grade of 16 and a fiber grade of 6A, which means it’s of a higher quality than most silk garments available.
Silk is a natural protein fiber, very similar to human hair, so it doesn’t need the same agitation, of say, a pair of jeans would need to get clean after a day in the garden.
This amazing fiber is harvested from the cocoons of the silkworm. These continuous threads can be pulled and wound at lengths of over a mile, with a tensile strength greater than steel.
That’s great, but it’s the feeling of the fabric and thermodynamic properties for the wearer that can’t be duplicated, though many have tried.
Silk really is a timeless, special fabric that even used to be used as currency — so invest in your best night’s sleep and love those returns.
For the Future: If you take good care of your silk garments, they can be passed down for generations, as heirloom pieces. It would be almost impossible to expect that from that pair of jeans.
What Kind of Silk is Washable?
All silk is washable, it’s just a matter of how your pieces can be washed.
What’s important is the fact that our collection is machine washable. This offers convenience and home management of your favorite pieces of sleep, or loungewear.
No more inconvenient (and expensive) runs to the dry cleaner. Just remove our silk after a delicate cycle of your washing machine and air dry your pieces on a padded hanger.
