spritz with water so the silk is damp, then iron it using the wool setting on the iron. that takes wrinkles out of just about anything. dont go much hotter or it may scorch the fabric.

That is just about what I was going to say. Wet the silk first then press it, if you are afraid of scorching it you can place a towel over the silk and press that, and/or wet the towel.

And next time I would say don't put them in the dryer.

Also if you are trying to steam them put some weight on the bottom so that the wrinkles are also being "pulled" out. I don't think that would cause anything weird in your silk, it is very strong.

I think I will get a clothes steamer and see how that works.  I did a little research on them and they look like they would be good for replacing my iron as well.  So it shouldn't be too hard to convince my husband that it should come out of the household budget rather than my crafting budget. Grin



If it is possible, get the steamer.  I use mine almost daily.  My husband has learned to appreciate it as well.  He has also used it (of course when I told him to do it himself because I was busy with something else Roll Eyes)  It is well worth the investment if you need to remove wrinkles a lot (clothing that is/not our bodies Grin).  It isn't like some of those other things I've bought and don't use because they aren't worth the effort Wink.  Like I said, I got started with the cheap version (under $10) and now I have the larger model.  If unsure/money tight try the inexpensive handheld one.  I bought a large one for my married daughter for Christmas and plan to buy another for someone else this year!  Something they needed, but wouldn't buy for themselves.

"If I had a magic charm
It would protect you from all harm
There'd be no sirens to alarm
We could stay here every day
And if I were a super hero
Good guys all the villains zero
I'd save you from all that is evil
So you can sleep at night"
