How to wash your linen

Tip 1

Act fast.

Promptly remove stains as soon as possible by gently blotting them with a damp cloth and mild, eco-friendly soap.

Tip 2

Group hues.

Wash linen items with similar colors to prevent color bleeding.

Tip 3

Don’t stuff.

Avoid overloading the washing machine to ensure proper cleaning and prevent excessive wrinkling.

Tip 4

Be gentle.

Use a mild, eco-friendly detergent without harsh chemicals to avoid damaging the fibers.

Tip 5

Take good care.

Avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals as bleach weakens the fibers and causes discoloration.

Tip 6

Mind the temp.

  • For linen bedding, wash in warm water — not cold, not hot — on your machine’s gentle cycle.
  • For linen apparel, refer to care instructions on the item as the ideal water temperature for washing varies by style.

How to dry your linen

  • Air-dry linen bedding and apparel for a crisp, fresh hand, or toss linen into the dryer set at a low temperature to reduce the risk of shrinkage and to avoid damaging the fibers.
  • If drying, remove it promptly to minimize the appearance of wrinkles; some are inevitable, but we think they only add to linen’s irresistible, laid-back appeal.
  • Use a steamer to smooth out wrinkles and creases for a more refined look.

How to store your linen

  • Store linens in a well-ventilated, cool, dry place. Avoid direct sunlight and humidity to prevent discoloration and mildew.
  • A clean canvas container with a zip closure is best for storage. Canvas is breathable yet offers a barrier to keep out moths.
  • Avoid plastic bins and cardboard boxes because they could discolor or break down linen fibers.
