Your Lino linens have been expertly woven using the finest materials, and with proper care they will grace your home for years to come.
This simple guide will help address everyday care and provide tips to ensure the longevity of your bed and table linens.

 

  • Machine Wash Cold - Warm
  • Spot cleaning for heavy stains
  • Tumble Dry Low
  • Hot iron with steam
  • Wash separately
  • Do not wring

 

Machine-Washing

  • Always check the care label before washing the linens.
  • Machine-wash on a gentle cycle using cold - lukewarm water lower than 40C
  • Wash colours separately.
  • Use a mild liquid detergent without added bleach, whiteners, or fabric softeners.
  • Pre-treat stains, if any, prior to washing.
  • Place delicate lace and embellished linens in a pillowcase or a mesh laundry bag for washing.
  • Do not overload the washing machine, as this can cause abrasion to the fabric.
  • Do not pour detergent directly on textiles. Dilute detergent with water, then add linens.

Drying

  • Line-drying the linens in soft, outdoor sunlight is ideal as it is gentle and the sun provides natural bleaching.
  • To machine-dry , set to the lowest heat as high heat may weaken the fibres.
  • To machine-dry , gently shake out damp linens before placing them in the dryer .Tumble dry low.
  • Do not use dryer sheet fabric softeners.
  • Avoid overloading the dryer.

Ironing

  • Always check to make sure your steam iron is clean before using it on your linens to avoid brown spotting.
  • Iron bed and table linens while still slightly damp.
  • Use a steam iron on a warm/ hot setting for linen.
  • Spray with water from a spray bottle for stubborn wrinkles, if needed.
  • Iron on the reverse side to avoid ironing directly on embroideries and embellishments to maintain designs
  • Linens with delicate lace and cut work should be ironed beneath a press cloth.

 Tips

Par: We recommend buying linens as 2 or 3 par so while one set is being laundered, another can be in use. Washing in alternate cycles also helps in increasing the life of linens.

Storage: Store linens in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area, away from long exposure to direct sunlight. Wrap linens in white cotton or muslin for long-term storage. Avoid storing linens in plastic, cardboard boxes etc. as they may stain fabrics.

Shrinkage: All natural fibres will shrink to some extent, but in most instances our linens are pre - shrunk. Do not wash and dry linens on a hot setting, which is likely to cause over-shrinkage.

Dry Cleaning: White and light coloured linens are mostly machine washable. Coloured linens should be dry cleaned to prevent fading. Make sure to use a professional dry cleaner with experience in natural fibres and luxury linens.
