Care Guide


If you love luxury linen as much as we do, then you will want to take the best care possible for your fabrics. These care instructions go into detail so you know how and why to care for your linen.

Washing

Hand or machine wash under 40ºC / 104ºF on a gentle cycle with similar colours using a mild detergent. Linen will naturally become softer with use, so there is no need for fabric softener. Fabric softener will coat the fibres and prevent it from properly wicking moisture away. 
When linen is new, it is normal to show a little bit of lint.  After the first 4-6 washes, the linen will be lint-free.
Soak tough-stained linen in cold water up to 2 days to loosen the stain. Follow by handwash using a mild detergent. If stain remains, use a modern enzyme stain treatment. Avoid dry-clean or conventional bleach, instead, use a small amount of oxygen bleach for particularly bad stains.

Drying

Hang dry linen for the longest possible life and the softest feel. Do not wring the linen out as it is damaging to the fibres.
If you are using a dryer, tumble dry under 40ºC / 104ºF —any higher can damage and shorten the lifespan of linen. Remove linen from the machine while still slightly damp to air dry. This will prevent the fibres from over-drying and becoming stiff. 

 

Ironing

Lay the linen flat to dry while it's still damp. The fibres will relax and the wrinkles will smooth out.
If there's a need to iron, use a linen-specific or low setting. Our lighter colours like Off White are better ironed on both sides, while our darker linen should be pressed only on the backside.

Storage

Store linen in a cool, dry place. There is no need to pack them away in plastic bags, cardboard boxes, or cedar chests. Linen also benefits from being naturally insect-repellant so you can free your closet from mothballs.

Don't worry —we include a care guide cheat sheet with all linen purchases. 

Wash well and sleep tight!
