Gentle machine wash with like colours at the indicated temperature
Line dry - in order to keep your bed linen in good condition, drying should be paid attention to.
Low heat tumble dry
Tumble dry on a high heat (tumble drying is damaging for all natural fibres including linen (think of all that lint in a dryer). It can break natural fibres which leads to premature wearing the fabric and therefore reducing its otherwise potentially very long life.)
Expose to the sun for extended periods of time (colour bleach)
We do not recommend ironing either - the natural wrinkly look is the characteristic and "charm" of modern linen.
About linen bedding.
Linen sheets are a dream to sleep in year round.
Warm in the winter - with its natural insulating properties, linen can do just that. Linen is able to retain heat and warmth from your body to keep you soundly sleeping.
Cool in the summer - as a naturally lightweight fibre, it makes sense that linen would breathe well in the summer. In addition, linen will actually help rid the body of heat. This fibre has the ability to keep you cool as apart of its natural properties. Not only that, but linen dries quickly; it is able to wick sweat away from the body.
Unlike cotton, linen when cared for correctly has the potential to last up to 2-3 decades before needing to be replaced. In fact, the more linen bedding is slept in, lived in and washed, the softer and more beautiful it becomes.
