Dyeing Sweaters

I have 3 sweaters made of silk that were accidentally placed in the washing machine because they are dark (brown and 2 black) they seem to have white lines running through the fabric
How do I repair silk damaged by washing machines?

Dear Maria,
there is no easy fix here, and possibly no fix at all. You can’t reverse any shrinkage or twisting. As for the color – if they are 100% silk, you could possibly re-dye or over dye them with the same or a darker color. However, those dark colors are the hardest to obtain. Either get a catalog from www.dharmatrading.com and read it carefully, then experiment with over dyeing – else chalk it up to laundry mistake. Sorry,
