Viscose

A semi-synthetic fiber made of regenerated cellulose. Highly lustrous and absorbent, it dyes well and has no static buildup. It has poor resilience, weakens when wet, and is prone to mildew.

Test Item

Can you wash viscose? Does viscose shrink? These are common questions we get on viscose fabric care.

How to Wash Viscose

Viscose rayon is generally not safe to wash (unless labeled otherwise). Often, rayon is mislabeled or partially labeled; perform a water test in an inconspicuous area when in doubt. If your item passes the water test, treat it as a delicate item.

Handwash

You can hand wash or machine wash viscose. Handwashing is the safest route; simply add two capfuls or a squirt of Delicate Wash to a washbasin or clean kitchen or bathroom sink filled with cool water.

Submerge the item and gently agitate the water with your hands to evenly distribute soap. Soak for up to 30 minutes. Rinse the item well with cool water; do not wring; instead, press the water out of the item and lay it in its natural shape to dry.

Machine Wash

If you opt for machine washing, you should turn the viscose item inside out, and place it in a Mesh Washing Bag to avoid snags and tears.

Select the delicate cycle on the washing machine, and make sure the water temperature is cold and the spin is on low.

Add the appropriate amount of Delicate Wash according to the machine and load size.

Dry & Finish

Lay the item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack or hang to dry. Do not put it in the dryer, as it may shrink!

To remove wrinkles, we recommend steaming for the best and safest finish.

If you don’t have a steamer, you can use the iron by hovering over the item and using the steam setting.

To freshen items between wearings, spritz with Delicate Spray.

How to Avoid Viscose Shrink

Never place viscose items in the dryer! For more expert fabric and home care tips, check out the Clean Talk Blog.

Store

Knit items should be stored folded to prevent stretching or distorting. Woven items such as pants can be hung.

Always store items clean.

We recommend storing in a breathable cotton storage bag to protect items from bugs.

Storing in plastic encourages yellowing and can trap mildew-causing moisture, a prime environment for bugs.
