Are Silk Bed Sheets Delicate
Of course, Silk bed sheets are delicate.
Silk is a natural protein fiber that develops from proteins secreted by silkworms. Since silk is an animal product, difficult to cultivate and time-consuming to weave, silk sheets are very expensive.
Silk, a very delicate fabric, should be hand washed using cold water and a mild detergent. If your silk is white, you should wash separately since the dye is liable to run during washing. You had better simply dip the silk sheets a few times in soapy water, and rinse clean them. Do not hang it in direct sunlight since that can damage the silk.
