Care Instructions for Linens
While we take great pride in the quality of our linens the truth is they are not indestructible (as much as we wish they were). Taking care of your handmade linens will ensure you'll get the most out of them.
GENTLY WASH ALL GOODS WITH LIKE COLORS AND FABRICS
All of our linens are pre-washed using an environmentally safe and hypoallergenic detergent.
Pre-treating stains with a safe, hard-working stain remover works great before washing.
Machine wash with like colors on cool or eco warm. Dry on medium heat and remove immediately or lay flat to dry.
You can also hand wash our goods.
MACHINE DRY ON COOL OR LAY FLAT TO DRY
If you are after the pressed look we recommend laying flat to dry. Smooth them with your hands to get a head start on ironing.
For a softer feel you can also toss them in the dryer on a cool or eco warm setting. Remove promptly and smooth with your hands.
Hand towels can be hung to dry on a hook in your kitchen, bathroom or wherever you use your towel.
IRON OR STACK LINENS
If you plan to use an iron it is most helpful to iron your linens when they are still damp. Natural fibers such as linen and cotton dry quickly so if they end up drying completely before you get to ironing them just spray the napkins with a little water to dampen them.
Water relaxes the fibers so from there you can smooth out the fabric with your hands if you wish to to give yourself a head start on ironing. This step isn't necessary but can be helpful if you're going for a very crisp look.
Take a very hot iron and iron your linens using steam on any stubborn wrinkles. Some people like to iron both sides to get them as smooth as possible. We recommend avoiding the use of starch as it can break down the fibers in your linens over time.
Ironing is not required, especially if you are after a casual look. Simply smooth out your linens by hand and stack. Linen is quite forgiving and relaxes over time if stacked.
All of our linens are meant to be used often and have been designed to be used casually on an everyday basis.
