Care / Washing Instructions

Washing Instructions

All of our cotton, linen and some wool products can be machine washed and tumble-dried. Our Alpaca and fine micron wool products must be dry cleaned
  • Wash separately in cold water on a short, gentle cycle, with as much water as possible to allow for movement
  • Avoid harsh detergents
  • Use a liquid detergent without bleach or brighteners
  • Always pre-dilute your detergent and clear any residue bleach

Drying Instructions Per Fabric Type

100% Cotton

  • Tumble dry on delicate setting, medium heat - Do not overdry

100% Linen

  • Tumble dry on delicate setting, low or no heat. Linen will become brittle if it is dried at a high heat temperature or for an extended period. When the fabric rubs on itself in a “dry” condition, it will abrade and show fiber on the surface.
  • Tumbling keeps a soft drape. You can line dry, but the fabric will be stiff initially
  • Remove the product slightly damp from the dryer than to “bake and break” the fibers.
  • Avoid exposure to direct sunlight over long periods
