To care for your linen, wash it in a lightly-filled washing machine at 40 degrees Celcius. Wash it separately for the first few wash cycles, as fibres can come off the product in the first washes. Linen is best air dried outside on a wash line, and does not need to be ironed before use. If drying outside is impractical owing to weather and space conditions, it can also be tumble dried on a medium heat, preferable until it is just about dry which gives a softer feel. It can then be ironed slightly damp if a crisp look is your preference, or folded once properly dry for a more relaxed feel.
