Manufacturers of the vintage silk wrap 's recommend hand wash in cool water but I always put mine in a pillow case and pop them in the machine on a gentle wash.
Drape evenly over the clothes line and it shouldn't require an iron. If ironing is required do so on a low heat setting.
When you receive your vintage silk wrap skirt it may have a slight vintage smell. If so, simply soak your wrap overnight in wool wash or mild clothes washing detergent.
