How To Care For Your Scarf Or Shawl / 26 Feb 2014

As with all beautiful natural things, your silk, cashmere or wool scarf should be handled with care. When not wearing it, fold it without creasing it, and store it in a dark dry drawer or box. You can also hang it over a padded hanger in your closet. You can iron your scarf at low temperatures, and dry clean only when it becomes soiled.

I like to put herb sachets in the drawer where I keep my scarves; it keeps them fresh and acts as a moth repellant for the wool and cashmere scarves. You can purchase herb sachets, or you can make your own.
Recipe for herb sachets:
Mix together:
2 ounces each of dried rosemary, mint and lavender.
1 ounce of dried thyme
8 ounces of whole cloves
Sew together 3.5 inch square pouches of any tightly woven fabric. Fill with the dried herb mixture, tie the open end with a pretty ribbon, and place in your drawers and closets.

With a minimal amount of care, your purchase will stay beautiful for many, many years.
