Look after your Liv Lindley silk and it will look after you! We recommend hand-washing; it helps preserve the sheen, softness and long life of your products. It's kind to the planet too!
For best results, hand-wash:
1. Immerse the item in cold water with a few drops of silk-safe/pH neutral detergent. Gently move your silk item around in the water.
2. Rinse with cold water.
3. Optional: add 50 ml of distilled white vinegar to one litre of cold water, rinse the item to keep the silk sheen. To finish, rinse again in cold water.
4. To dry, spread item out on a towel and roll up gently to absorb excess moisture. Do not wring or twist the fabric.
5. Dry flat or hang, avoiding direct sunlight and direct heat.
6. Steam or iron inside out, on a very cool setting.
Machine-wash (pillowcases and face masks only)
1. Our products are machine washable on a cool, delicates setting (max 30°C).
2. Only a small amount of liquid silk-safe detergent should be used (pH neutral)
3. I recommend turning the pillowcase inside out and placing inside a laundry bag before washing.
4. Once washed, silk products can be left out to air dry in the shade and away from direct heat. Do not tumble dry!
This is the universal measure of the weight of silk, which typically indicates the thickness of silk fabric. I use the highest grade silk with a thickness of 22 momme for my accessories and 19 momme for the dressing gowns, to allow more fluidity and movement when worn. This quality provides the perfect combination of durability, practicality and affordable, pure luxury.
Mulberry silk is recognised to be the finest silk in the world. But I didn’t want to stop there - I have spent time working to source the most premium mulberry silk. The momme refers to the density of the silk fibre and so our grade 6A 22 momme mulberry silk is one of the highest qualities in the world, showcasing a beautiful sheen and lustre.

Cotton is more abrasive than silk and causes more friction against your skin and hair. This leads to dehydrated skin, fine lines and creases and can cause hair breakage and frizz.
Silk has a smoother surface compared to cotton and has many natural benefits:
- Hypoallergenic: Silk is naturally hypoallergenic, perfect for anyone who suffers from allergies or has sensitive skin.
- Kind To Skin: Recommended by dermatologists, silk is naturally breathable, meaning acne break outs, irritation and redness flare ups are minimised.
- Hydrated Skin: Silk has many beauty benefits including natural anti-ageing properties. Silk fibres are much less absorbant than cotton or man-made fibres, meaning our high grade silk helps skin retain it’s natural moisture. The result: a more glowing complexion.
