I hope this isn't too much of a repeat question - I did poke around a bit.

I have a lovely dyed raw silk scarf my bf gave me - which I'd love to be able to wear, but which currently makes my neck turn green if I attempt it!

I've found a few different tips on setting the dye, but I thought I'd ask here as well as I don't want to dull the colours too much by overheating it or stripping too much dye out or anything (but of course, also want it set really well so it doesn't stain other clothes I'm wearing) - plus of course, I don't know what kind of dye was used on it.

Any tips?

Thanks!

Dharma sells a dye fixative which I've had really good experience with.
