We recommend washing regularly to avoid discolouration. Soaking white sheets/tablecloths in cold water first will help loosen dirt before washing.
Our cotton bed and table linen can be machine washed at 40o Whites and coloured fabrics should always be washed separately. Bleaching agents and harsh detergents can damage the embroidery cotton.
Wash duvet covers inside out to protect the embroidery, also this makes ironing easier. I have also found it easier to put the duvet cover back on the duvet if the cover is inside out.
We recommend line drying, fresh air is best, fold when taken from the line to avoid creasing and make ironing easier. Our cotton products may be tumble dried at a lower heat setting.
Use the cotton setting on a warm. Correct washing and drying will reduce creasing and make ironing easier.
Ironing bed linens and table linens when slightly damp, using a steam iron, will give the best results. If the fabric becomes too dry spray with a water spray before ironing. Ironing on the reverse side for hand embroidered products will help protect and enhance the embroidery.
When ironing sheets, duvet covers or tablecloths fold in half-length wise making handling easier.
Cotton is sensitive to mildew, therefore your sheets and tablecloths should be thoroughly dry before storage. Store in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight.
Linen can be machine washed at 40oC.As linen is highly absorbent (it can absorb twice its weight in water before it drips) it soaks up more water during the wash cycle than most other fibers. It is therefore cleaned more thoroughly when the machine is not packed to capacity.
Line dry white linens in the sun when possible, this helps them stay white. Tumble dry on low if necessary. We do not recommend tumble drying as this is very hard on textiles made from natural fiber.
Use a steam setting on a hot iron, when the linen is slightly damp for best results.
Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
Our quilts are all handmade and therefore require special care to ensure long lasting satisfaction.
