1. Separate Colours: Sort them by colour to avoid colour bleeding.
  2. Close Fastenings: Zip up zippers, button buttons, and turn the garment inside out to protect the fabric.


  1. Use a Gentle Cycle: Select a gentle or delicate cycle on your washing machine with cold or lukewarm water. Hot water can cause linen to shrink.
  2. Pop it in a wash bag for extra care! This is great for preventing pulls and damage from other garments.
  3. Mild Detergent: Use a mild detergent that is free of bleach and other harsh chemicals.
  4. Avoid Overloading: Do not overload the washing machine to prevent excess friction and wrinkling.
  5. DO NOT HANDWASH! This causes the dye to bleed.


  1. Air Dry: Lay the linen item flat on a clean, dry towel and roll it up to squeeze out excess water. Then, lay it flat to dry, or hang it on a padded hanger.
  2. Avoid Direct Sunlight: Dry linen in a shaded area to prevent the fabric from becoming stiff and discolored.

Ironing and Storing

  1. Iron While Damp: For a crisp finish, iron linen while it’s still damp using a medium-hot iron. Use the steam setting if needed. A garment steamer is always a great choice for this too.
  2. Store Properly: Store linen items in a cool, dry place. Avoid hanging heavy linen garments as they may stretch over time; instead, fold them neatly.


  • Spot Clean: For small stains, spot clean immediately with a mild detergent and cool water.
  • Fabric Softener: Avoid using fabric softeners, as they can coat the fibers and reduce linen's natural absorbency and breathability.
