NATURAL STONEWASHED FRENCH LINEN.

We want you to have the best experience with your linen so please follow our care instructions.

To love and care for your linen…

  • Before washing do up any buttons.

  • Machine wash with a mild detergent in either cold or warm water. If linen has been dyed, please wash separately.

  • Never use bleach (not even on white linen) as this will damage the fibres.  An OxiClean soak (such as nappisan) is fine, just make sure it’s well dissolved before adding fabric.

  • Fabric softeners can be used but they were never meant for natural fibres.

  • Linen is best air dried but a drier can be used on a medium setting.

  • For over dried or wrinkled linen, just damp down and allow to relax.

Linen has a distinctive shabby chic look that comes from its soft texture and light crumples so doesn’t need to be ironed but can be just damp down with a light spray of water as you iron.

ORGANIC BAMBOO BED LINEN.

Bamboo is so very easy to care for….

  • Just wash separately using a mild washing powder either in cold or warm water 30C and using a gentle cycle.

  • Do not bleach or dry clean your bamboo sheets but if you want to whiten just soak using an oxy clean such as nappisan (make sure that it is well dissolved before adding sheets).

  • Tumble dry on a cool setting using a gentle cycle or iron on low heat setting if required.  Personally, I air dry my sheets and finish off in the dryer folding as soon as I take them out (so easy)

Bamboo fabric becomes quite stiff when wet – don’t panic as it dries it will return to its gorgeous softness.

If you have purchased a bamboo duvet cover it’s most important that you always do up the zip when washing.

Please note: if you do not use a mild washing powder and a cool to warm wash on a gentle cycle then pilling of your sheets may occur,  we do not offer a refund for pilling.

100% MULBERRY SILK DUVET INNER.

Always use a duvet cover or throw to protect your silk inner.

A properly covered silk duvet should not require cleaning under normal conditions of use.  Unlike duvets with a feather and down filling, they remain free from dust mites.

  • Your duvet should be regularly aired outside on a sunny day, without a cover for a couple of hours.  This has the effect of purifying and fluffing up the silk floss. Vigorous shaking is unnecessary and not recommended.

  • Washing your silk duvet, whether by hand or machine, is not recommended as it may cause the silk to lose some of its natural properties.

  • Do not tumble dry.

Do not dry-clean your silk duvet using commercial dry cleaning methods.  Silk should never be cleaned with any form of chemical cleaner such as those used in the dry cleaning process as the chemicals will not only affect the silk’s natural properties but also cause it to harden, thus reducing its softness.

SPOT CLEANING

Treat localised spillages immediately by wiping the affected area with a clean white damp cloth.  If the spillage has penetrated through to the silk floss, delicately hand wash the affected area only using lukewarm water (maximum 30C) and a non-biological detergent suitable for washing woollens, then rinse thoroughly using cold water.
