Wash separately in cold water on a short, gentle cycle.
- Avoid harsh detergents.
- Use a liquid detergent without bleach or brighteners
- When needed pre-dilute your detergent and clear any residue bleach
- Air-dry your linen garment on a padded hanger or place it flat on a drying rack
- Avoid exposure to direct sunlight over long periods
- Tumble dry only on delicate setting, low or no heat. Linen will become brittle if it is dried on high heat or for an extended period. Tumbling keeps a soft drape
- Remove the product slightly damp from the dryer to “bake and break” the ﬁbers. Allowing the fabric to rub on itself in a “dry” condition will cause abrasion
Did you know - linen gets better with every wash - softer silkier and always beautiful
As a general rule, linen garments can be machine laundered on the delicate or short cycle with a cold water wash and rinse. You will extend the life of the fabric if you hand-wash your linen clothing in cold water. Steer clear of harsh laundry detergents when washing linen clothes. Buy a mild detergent formulated for delicate fabrics. Always remember to separate your whites and colours.

- Non-allergenic properties—this helps people who suffer from allergies, particularly dust mite allergies
- Lint free—it is resistant to lint
- Durable—it is also resistant to abrasions, making it even more durable
- Temperature—it is able to withstand high temperatures
