HOW TO CARE FOR

European Linen

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.

HOW TO CARE FOR

Organic Cotton

We recommend washing separately before your first use.

Gentle machine wash in cool to warm water – ideally 30 - 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.

As with all natural fibres – repeated washing, at high temperatures will shorten the lifespan of your bedding.

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. When using a tumble dryer, remove sheets promptly to reduce
creasing.  We recommend airing it while slightly damp for the best result and feel. Organic cotton is not chemically treated, so high temperatures can cause shrinkage.

Direct sunlight for long periods – will cause fading or yellowing over time. However organic cotton if properly treated will last longer than non-organic cotton.

Warm iron on reverse if required – ideally while still damp.
