Care instructions

Washing

  • Remove any spots before the bedding goes in the washing machine – once they’ve been heated, they will be permanent. Remove them with dish soap. Wet the spot, apply soap and massage in before washing
  • Limit the use of detergent. Too much detergent weakens textile fibers over time
  • Dilute your detergent before use. Do not put detergent directly on the fabric; straight detergent can cause discoloration
  • – Do not mix the bedding with clothes that have metal zippers or a rough texture – they can cause pilling and abrasion
  • Do not use fabric softeners; they coat the natural fibers and break them down. The same goes for dryer sheets; Lint sticks to them and causes abrasion inside the dryer that can create pilling
  • Do not use bleach. It can cause discoloration
  • Wash in warm or cold water – lower temperatures are good for the environment. We recommend 40 degrees Celsius

Drying

  • Line dry your bedding if possible; it’s more gentle for textiles
  • If using a dryer, take the sheets out before they’re completely dry. Drape them on a drying rack and then stretch out and fold
  • A too-hot dryer is what ruins most fabrics. Hot water is not a problem, but a hot dryer weakens and breaks natural textile fibers
  • Clean the lint filter regularly. If allowed to accumulate, lint creates a type of pilling on surfaces

Ironing

  • We do not recommend you iron your linen bedding. Ironing weakens textile fibers over time
  • If you still wish to iron we recommend you do so when the textile is still damp
