Linen Care

Linen is one of the world’s oldest fabrics and also one of the easiest fabrics to care for. Linen gets better with age and softens the more it is washed. It is a strong, durable fabric that resists pilling.

Machine Washing

All our linens are machine washable in cool to warm water. We recommend using a gentle PH balanced detergent, which works well for all natural or organic fibres. Wash with similar colours and avoid overcrowding the washing machine, as this could result in the linen being twisted and pulled out of shape. Please note: natural fibers can shrink when washed by approximately 5%.

Stain removal

The long smooth fibers in linen help resist dirt and stains. Pre-soak any stains before washing. Never use bleach, as it will destroy the natural fibers. Instead, treat stains with a non-chlorine oxygen bleach.

Linen Care


Linen absorbs water quickly and dries quickly too. Line dry your linen, but avoid wringing it out before drying, which could affect the shape. Drying white linen in the sun can help maintain the colour. Be sure to dry thoroughly before storing.


Iron while the linen is still damp. Use a steam iron or a water spritzer for better results if desired.

Wool and Cashmere Care

  • dry clean only
  • if needed, set your iron on the wool setting and use steam when pressing

Alpaca Care

We recommend dry cleaning all our Baby Alpaca or Alpaca Lambswool throws.

Alpaca clothing can be dry cleaned or when advised, we recommend hand washing.

Hand washing

Hand wash in cool water with a very mild soap or baby shampoo. Soak the garment and gently press to remove water. Avoid wringing or twisting the garment as this may affect its shape.

Do not use the hand wash cycle on the washing machine and never use bleach as this will damage the natural fibres.

After washing, roll in a white towel to remove moisture. Lay flat to dry and block the garment to reshape it to the original dimensions.
