Charmeuse is a lightweight woven with a satin weave, in which warp threads cross over four or more of the backing threads. Pure charmeuse satin is expensive and delicate but it is softer and a better insulator than polyester. Follow our care guide for better use.
- Satin items should be washed by hand or on the delicate cycle of your washer. When hand-washing, let the item soak in sudsy water for about 3 to 5 minutes. Gently squeeze the suds through the clothing. Rinse thoroughly with cool or cold water.
- DO NOT wring or twist your satin clothing as it will cause it to lose its shape.
- Avoid placing satin items in a dryer. Instead, lay the item flat on a clean, dry towel, and roll the towel, jelly-roll style, and apply pressure to squeeze out excess water. Unroll, remove item and lay flat on another clean, dry towel to finish air drying, away from sun or excess heat.
- Satin items should be ironed on a medium/light setting, with no steam. Iron the items inside-out with quick strokes, never allowing the iron to linger too long on any one spot.
