Washing

We recommend machine washing your linen in cool or lukewarm temperatures. Do not wash them in very hot temperatures as this will fade the colour. Do not use harsh detergents that contain bleach or opticals brighteners, as they can leave marks. They can also weaken the fibres and fade the colour over time. A wool detergent is always a good option. If possible, avoid pouring the detergent directly onto the linen, it is better to add detergent that has already been dissolved. Also, make sure there is a good rinse cycle at the end of the wash, so that detergents are properly washed out.



Drying

Linen is a natural fibre, and natural fibres will fade quickly in direct sunlight, therefore drying your linen correctly is important. It is best to dry your linen naturally in a shady spot to ensure the sun doesn't fade them. Do not leave wet linen on wood or coloured objects, as it could also cause stains. We recommend steering clear of the dryer, however, if it cannot be avoided, use a tumble dryer on a low setting, not a hot setting.



Ironing & Dry Cleaning

Linen does not require ironing, but if you do want to use an iron, it is best to apply a light water spray and then iron using a low heat setting. Do not dry clean your linen as the chemicals used can weaken the fibres.
