Our linen is sourced from raw European flax; a sustainable plant that when initially woven can be rough and scratchy – this is why our linens are pre-washed. The more linen is washed the softer it becomes.
We recommend washing separately before your first use.
Bed linens should be laundered every 5 – 7 days; linen is ultra-absorbent, so leaving it longer can cause stains and discolouration.
Gentle machine wash in cool to warm water (no hotter than 40° C).
Always wash light and dark colours separately.
We recommend using a natural plant based laundry detergent; avoid detergents with bleaching agents & enzymes – these can weaken the fabric and cause discolouration.
Line-drying in the shade is ideal for the environment as well as leaving your linen outdoor-fresh and almost crease free. You can also use flat drying or tumble drying on a delicate setting – please note over-drying in the sun, will cause the linen to feel stiff and scratchy, and over-drying in the tumble-dryer will cause the linen to crease. For best results and feel air your linen sheets while slightly damp.
Direct sunlight for long periods – will cause fading or yellowing over time.
Warm iron on reverse if required.
Please note all natural fibres will shrink – while we have allowed for this in the sizing of our bed-linen, washing or drying at hotter than recommended temperatures will cause shrinkage.
Make sure your linens are stored in a dry and well-ventilated place.
