General properties of Silk-Filled Bedding

Uponremoving your new silk filled bedding product from the package, you may noticean unfamiliar odor. This normal occurrence is the natural scent of silk,intensified as a result of being sealed in protective plastic bag. Be assured that with daily usage and properventilated storage this scent will completely dissipate and not reoccur.

If youprefer to hasten this process, Empress Silk recommends spinning the silkbedding with a sheet of fabric softener in a dryer set on low for about 20-30minutes. Or you may simply hang on aline in a sunny or well-ventilated area for a day or two.

Again,please be assured this scent is natural to all pure silk and not the result ofchemical treatment.
