So as the title implies, I have a 100% cashmere topcoat and silk tie that got wet. I forgot they were in the trunk of my car, and there was a bad storm last night that caused my trunk to leak. The silk Zegna tie is soaked... The coat is soaked inside and out in a few places where the water was dripping on it; I'd say about 1/3 got soaked, 1/3 is damp, and 1/3 is pretty dry.

I have the coat layed out with a towl in it, and the tie laid out on a towl. I searched and found on here to use a light brush on the coat when it is dry, any thing else for either? Through searching I found that slik can dry yellow?
Any big do's or don'ts to help fix this? Am I screwed for either? Thanks in advance for the help! I feel so dumb...women make me forget things...
