HOW TO CARE FOR LINEN

Look after your linen pieces, and they will always have your back. While they may look delicate, they are surprisingly durable and will go the distance if you give them the TLC they need.

WASHING

Always hand wash separately using cold water and never wring, twist or scrub the fabric. Use a mild detergent and don’t use any nasty bleaches on your linens.

DRYING

Lay your linens out flat in the shade to dry, as they may fade or become brittle if exposed to direct sunlight for too long. Be sure to re-shape while still wet to ensure they retain their shape.

IRONING

Always switch your iron to the linen setting to avoid damaging the fibres, and turn the garment inside out. While linen will naturally crease, ironing after laundering will avoid persistent deep wrinkles. It is best to iron while the garment is still damp as the heat from the iron will dry the fabric.

STORING

Always fold to store your linen knits, as hanging may cause the fibres to drop and lead to the garment stretching.
