WASHING YOUR LINEN
It’s true. Our linen sheet sets will be just fine in your washing machine. In fact, one of the benefits of linen bedding is that it get softer with every wash. Go for a gentle cycle, washing your linen bedding set using a mild, liquid laundry detergent. One more tip from the experts — wash linen with similar colors to help keep the hues looking their best.
SHEDDING HAPPENS, BUT NOT TO WORRY
We’re going to tell you this now: your linen sheets are going to shed. However, there’s no need to worry about it. This is actually part of the life cycle of natural linen bedding, as the fibers relax to become softer with age. We recommend tumble drying with wool dryer balls or running a few extra washes on cold to speed up the shedding process.
DRYING YOUR LINEN
Linen bedding and your average dryer have… a complicated history. Unlike some bed linens, our bundles can be tumble dried. That being said, we recommend tumbling on a low heat in order to avoid damaging the fibers. Be sure to remove the bed linens promptly in order to avoid over-drying or set-in wrinkles. As with any textiles, line-drying will prolong the life of your linens.
WORKING OUT WRINKLES
A laid-back, lived-in look is part of the appeal of natural linen bedding, so ironing really isn’t necessary. However, if you find yourself dreaming of a little more structure, you can iron your bed linens on a low, warm heat. Many household irons will even have a milder setting specifically for linen sheets. Just remember less is more with your linen setting.
