Our products are hand made with care and consideration from the best quality European Linen. We hope that they may last at least a lifetime if properly looked after. Please follow these care instructions to maintain your linen goods and feel free to get in touch should you need advice.
Our fabrics can be laundered with confidence in washing machines – white thick weave fabrics in temperature 60°C, colour fabrics in 40°C. Fabrics with delicate, jacquard weave of “net” type should be washed by hand. All Timeless Linen products carry full washing instructions.
Unfold your linen completely before washing. Do not overload the machine. Wash your linen preferably at max. 40°C. Use a mild detergent. Low tumble dry. Never use bleach.
Most linen fabrics can shrink after the first wash by 2 to 8 % depending on the fabric. This shrinking may be minimized by always pre washing linen in cold water.
Drying in tumble dryer is not recommended for linen. Heat damages the fibers, is conducive to excessive shrinking, and shortens your linen lifetime. Using your dryer with the proper low settings is eventually possible, when you have no other option but not on a regular basis. Don’t over dry.
If spin dried we recommend the spinning with the maximum speed of 800rpm. For preference, line-dry and let fresh air, wind and sunshine do it for you!
For eventual stains we suggest to use Shout. Mild dish detergent or bar soap, rubbed into damp fabric – especially for grease, are other possible options.
Important to know: don’t apply heat until you are sure the spot is gone. Heat can set a stain and make it more difficult (or impossible) to remove.
Our products are made of pre-washed linen and if hang out directly after wash they do not require ironing. However if you choose to iron your items we recommend the ironing on slightly damp linen on the inside of the fabric. Check the sewn-in label with the universal symbols for the appropriate setting for your iron.
