Washing a 100% silk duvet
I love my new 100% silk duvet (silk cover, silk threads as the filler.) Now it's time to clean it. It says dry clean only. Something about the filling, which is the more natural form of the silkworm's threads), not drying properly. I don't see why this would be, since I've washed and dried down duvets, and have washed and dried 100% silk fabric.
I don't think drycleaning is a very sanitary way to clean things (from "things" I've heard.)
Has anybody successfully broken the dryclean only rule on one of these? Thanks!
