Silk Garden? On the label there are 3 symbols with no writing, and 4 different symbols with English underneath. The top three symbols are - what looks like a beaker with an X through it, then a circle with a wavy line through the middle, and some Japanese (I think) letters in it, and lastly a circle with the letter F in it and a horizontal line beneath the circle. The symbols with English say Prohibit Bleach, Iron on Low Degree, Dry Clean, and Do Not Tumble Dry.

I'm guessing I can hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry, but I'm afraid the colors will run and turn muddy. I don't want to ruin my just-finished Quant! Can anyone help?!

You can wash Silk Garden by hand. I've done two blankets with it and actually put them in the machine to spin out--they look beautiful and softened up considerably!

Wonderful! Thank you! :muah: I probably should have checked when I bought it, but I was so spellbound by the beautiful colors I never thought about it :roflhard:
