Bourette Silk is spun silk and has a warm, "earthy", natural feel. Silk is thought to be very helpful for eczema sufferers, and our Bourette silk is chemical and dye-free. This silk is IMO certified as organic and comes from a regeneration project near ChengDu in China. Find out more here.
Machine-washable at 30C. Please use a liquid detergent for delicates to protect the fabric - we recommend our "wool shampoo" or Ecover delicates. At a pinch, use your own shampoo in preference to normal washing powder, which is designed for cotton!
