Fine bed linens actually improve with proper care; they will become soft, smooth, and naturally wrinkle resistant. We suggest rotating your sheets. Allowing your sheets to ‘rest’ between uses will extend their life.
Our products are made from natural fibres that can be machine-washed at home, however, please be sure to read the care label on each item for the best results.
Machine wash using a moderate or cold temperature.
Avoid crowding your linens in the wash, and allow ample space for the size of your bedding.
Make sure there is enough water in the cycle. Use maximum water settings for load size.
Use very little detergent. Too much detergent may not rinse out causing buildup.
Do not use fabric softeners, bleach, detergents with bleach, whiteners, or alkaline detergents.
Machine dry filling the drum very loosely and tumble dry using a moderate temperature.
Do not use dryer sheets.
Do not over-dry.
Linen is a fibre that softens and gets smoother over time, and it does so by shedding excess and unnecessary fibres. It is totally fine and completely normal, and usually will come to a natural conclusion after a few wash cycles.
White linen may be washed hot, and coloured linens should be washed at medium temperatures.
Wash no more than one sheet and one pair of shams in as much water as possible (largest load setting on your machine), on a gentle cycle.
Use a very small amount of gentle soap.
When finished, shake the articles well to open them up before putting them into your dryer.
You want each piece to have as much room as possible to tumble dry.
WOOL & CASHMERE CARE
Keep it fresh and avoid unnecessary laundering by steaming in between washings. Do not iron, which will flatten and the pile, steam instead. Pilling may occur with the quality of the product, it can easily be removed with a cashmere comb. The fibres should settle after a few launderings.
If possible, turn items inside out when laundering.
Choose the gentlest cycle possible or wash by hand.
Use maximum water setting possible.
Do not use detergents that contain dyes or other harsh enzymes.
Don’t use a fabric softener as it will coat the cashmere fibres and cause excessive pilling.
Air dry by laying it flat rather than tossing it in the dryer. Store in a breathable container with cedar chips or anti-moth sachets to prevent moths and mustiness. Don’t hang on the clothesline as this can stretch and warp the shape of your bed linen.Use delicate low heat; never hot. Warm press while still slightly damp.
Silk is so smooth that it actually sheds dirt and stays clean longer, so you don’t need to launder it as often as other fabrics.
Do not allow silk to become heavily soiled. Silk can be weakened by perspiration and perspiration stains are almost impossible to remove. Keep your silk away from perfumes, hairspray, nail polish remover, and deodorants, which can dissolve silk.
DRYINGWhen drying, use medium temperatures and select the gentle cycle on your dryer. Remove before it is completely dry and air dry the remainder.
For garments and small bed linen items, such as pillowcases, it is wise to turn them inside out and use a large lingerie bag.
If pressing is desired, press inside-out on medium temperatures.
