How Can I Stop My Scarf From Shedding?

Nothing can make an outfit more than choosing the right accessories to top up your whole look. While you may be using your favorite scarf from your collection, and although you look absolutely stunning, nothing is more frustrating than having to take it off to find that it has been shed all over your clothes. 

Scarf shedding happens when the little fibers of your scarf fall off and cling to whatever surface they land on, and in this case, your outfit. Because of this, you might have to put your scarf back on just to hide the chaos. 

Sadly, even cute scarves may have to go through some shedding, so you're probably wondering how you can avoid this catastrophe. Fortunately, our team is scarf experts, and we've created a quick guide to help you avoid embarrassing scarf shedding. Let's take a look!

The Different Types of Scarves and How to Treat Shedding

When it comes to figuring out the best way to stop your scarf from shedding, you need to consider its type. 

  • Protein Fiber: These fibers are from animals, including wool, angora, and cashmere. To help avoid shedding, you should fold up your scarf, put it in a Ziploc baggie, and pop it in the freezer for 24 hours. This will help stop the shedding problem before you wear it.
  • Cellulose Fiber: These fibers are from plants and include linen and cotton. To avoid shedding, throw the scarf in the dryer for ten minutes before wearing it.
  • Polyester: This synthetic and durable fabric is often used for different types of clothing. While it may feel good, it can be a bit unsightly when it starts to shed. Since polyester shedding can be a little intense, we'll discuss how you can avoid polyester shedding below. 

How to Manage Polyester Shedding

You most probably own cute scarves made from polyester. Perhaps you're here because you've experienced their wrath when they started shedding. Finally, here's a step-by-step guide that could help you manage the issue and avoid that embarrassing chaotic shedding moment:

  • Step 1: Brush down your polyester scarf with a dog shedding brush or natural bristle brush before your scarf. By doing this, you help remove loose fibers, and that will shed when you wash;
  • Step 2: Wash your polyester scarf according to temperature and the washing instructions it came with. Ideally, you want to use gentle detergent as well with a cup of vinegar——the vinegar will help deter shedding;
  • Step 3: After washing, let your polyester scarf hang and dry outside;
  • Step 4: After drying, spray down your polyester with starch and wait two minutes until it's dry. By doing this, you help the polyester fibers become stiffer, making them less susceptible to shedding. 

Wrapping It Up: Say Goodbye to Chaotic Scarf Shedding With The Tips Above

Thankfully, you can finally bid farewell to the chaos that is scarf shedding. Of course, the key here is to determine the types of cute scarves you have and what kind of fiber you're dealing with to know the best way to handle scarf shedding. After following these tips, you can walk with confidence and unwrap your scarf, knowing you won't be dealing with shedding again!
