New York's Tailoring Experts Explain How to Care for Fine Fabrics, New York, New York

When it comes to caring for beautiful garments, no one knows more than the dedicated team at Wo’s Custom Tailoring in New York. From three piece suits to vintage gowns, there’s nothing they can’t customize to fit you perfectly. In addition to providing superior-quality tailoring services, Wo’s Custom Tailoring takes pride in advising their customers on the proper care and treatment of fine clothing.

Check out these handy care tips from Wo’s Custom Tailoring and make sure all of your beloved garments enjoy a long life:

  • Silk: While you might think that all of your silk garments have to be dry cleaned, the team at Wo’s Custom Tailoring likes to remind their customers that silk products can be washed by hand at home without incurring any damage. As long as you use lukewarm water, a mild fabric soap, and never wring your silk dry (allow it to air dry instead), it should maintain its beauty and utility for years to come.
  • Wool: According to Wo’s Custom Tailoring, one of the most important things you can do to care for your wool clothing is to treat stains immediately. Once stains set into natural wool fibers, they become extremely difficult to remove, so it’s best to use the blot technique the moment you notice any stains. These professionals also note that most wool items only need to be dry cleaned a couple of times a year unless they’re frequently worn.


  • Cashmere: Like silk, cashmere can be hand washed at home as long as you use a gentle soap and allow it to air dry. The downside to washing your cashmere at home is that you have to be careful about how you allow it dry because it can easily wrinkle or lose its shape. Wo’s Custom Tailoring recommends drying your cashmere clothing on a completely flat surface or simply opting for dry cleaning instead.
