Frequently Asked Questions / Care Guide / Size & Fit
How do I care for my 100% silk Hesper Fox nightwear products?
- Our range is made in 100% silk charmeuse, also known as silk satin, so called because it is made with a satin weave in which the warp threads cross over the backing (or weft threads), to produce a fabric with a lustrous and reflective finish.
- Silk is a delicate, luxury fabric that needs to be treated carefully for it to maintain its lustre, shine and colour.
- Please read the care instructions carefully before attempting to launder your items. By following the instructions, your Hesper Fox pieces will look their beautiful best for longer.
- We recommend either taking your items to a specialist dry cleaner experienced in the handling of silk and delicate fabrics or hand washing at 30 degrees. Do not machine wash silk.
- If you are unsure about temperature, always go to a cooler temperature and always use a specialist silk detergent as some regular detergents contain enzymes and harsh chemicals that help get your wash clean but can degrade the delicate structure of silk fibres or leave residues which will reduce its sumptuous feel and luxurious sheen.
- Do not apply detergent directly to your items. Instead, make sure it is fully dissolved before adding your pieces. Do not soak them for a prolonged period of time and always make sure that the water runs clear when rinsing. Items can be rolled in a clean towel to remove excess water and should be air-dried away from direct sources of heat. Do not tumble dry silk.
- Carefully iron on the reverse side with your iron on a low setting to restore lustre.

We are very proud to produce and source all our garments at a fully audited factory in Europe who value transparency and high ethical standards as much as we do. They take great care in lovingly attending to the beautiful tailoring and finishes we pride ourselves on; French seams, mother of pearl buttons, delicate rouleaux straps, rolled hems and silk bindings. Our creative director regularly visits the factory and works very closely with the team to oversee production.
