Care Instructions

Cotton

Washing

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.

Drying

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.

Ironing

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.

Storage

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

Washing

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.

Drying

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.

Ironing

Use a steam setting on a hot iron, when the linen is slightly damp for best results.

Storage

Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.

 

Silk/Velvet and Silk/Linen Quilts

Our quilts are all handmade and therefore require special care to ensure long lasting satisfaction.

  • Dry Clean only using a professional dry cleaner.
  • Do Not Spot Clean
  • Do Not Wash or Tumble Dry

 

Silk

Pure Silk is a delicate but hard wearing fabric which is easy to care for.

In order to retain its lustre follow this simple guide.

  • Always wash separately in a mild soapy solution in lukewarm water.
  • DO NOT sprinkle soap powder directly on to the wet article, scrub or use bleach or leave to soak.
  • Biological soap powders should not be used.
  • Rinse several times to remove soap suds and NEVER wring to remove water. Wringing can break the fibers.
  • Instead Rinse well and roll in towel to remove surplus moisture. Dry away from direct sunlight or heat.
  • Do not drip dry and iron on reverse side while still damp.
  • Machine wash separately on a delicate cycle at 30 C.
  • Deodorants and perfume sprayed directly on to silk will cause discolouring and should be avoided.
