To iron, or not to iron? It is up to you!
It is a common misconception that linen needs specialist care, but this couldn't be further from the truth. We'll help you see how easy it is to care for and keep linen looking beautiful for years to come.
Linen is a natural fibre made from the flax plant. Due to the structure of the fibre's, linen does tend to crease more easily, however this is part of the overall look and texture of linen.
As linen is a natural fibre, it dries quickly and is breathable, making it the perfect fabric for the warmer months.
We recommendyou either hand wash or gentle machine wash linen garments in lukewarm or cold water and use a mild soap without bleach or brighteners. When using a washing machine, opt for a short, gentle cycle only.
If you want to extend the life of your linen garments, you may prefer to hand wash in place of machine washing, as this will help prolong the appearance and colour.
Avoid dry cleaning linen as the chemicals used at the dry cleaners can react with linen and weaken the fibres.
Tumble drying is not recommended and we advise that you always follow an individual garments care-instructions.
To dry your linen garments simply hang or lay flat over a clothes horse. Avoid over drying as this can made the linen brittle over time. Also avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight to protect against fading.
Linen garments should always be hung up in a dark space and should be dry before hanging in order to avoid any further creasing or odour while they’re not being worn.
