Linen - Washing
New linen should be washed in cooler water temperatures for the first few washes. We recommend that you separate your linens from other items in the first wash. Future wash temperatures should be at 40°C but for stubborn stains, temperatures can be raised to 60°C. At that temperature, the smooth flax fibers that make up the linen material will release any staining. Use a neutral or mild detergent that does not contain any bleaching agents such as chlorine or peroxide.
Linen - Ironing
Remove your linens from the dryer promptly while still damp to reduce wrinkles. Smooth and fold, or press with an iron if desired. Iron linens while still slightly damp on the reverse side of the fabric. Use a steam iron on a warm/hot setting for linen and a water spritzer if needed.

Dried Flower and Grasses
Dried flowers will last in excess of one year if they are stored correctly. They should be kept out of direct sunlight so the colour does not fade over time.
