Fabric care and information

Bedding

All of our organic cotton products are machine washable. We recommend machine washing on the gentle or delicate cycle with like colors, with cold water and a natural, plant based laundry detergent. We do not recommend using whiteners, as bleaching agents may diminish the brilliance and depth of the colors; when needed, use only non-chlorine bleach. Line dry, or tumble dry low and remove promptly. Fabric softeners and dryer sheets reduce the absorbency of cotton textiles and are not recommended. Place a set of our wool dryer balls inside the dryer to naturally soften the fabric and reduce drying time. Use a warm iron as needed.

Cotton Towels

We recommend machine washing on the gentle or delicate cycle with like colors, with cold water and a natural, plant based laundry detergent. Avoid chlorine bleach and fabric softeners. GOTS prohibits chlorine bleach in textile processing, so we use hydrogen peroxide for our whites. Non-chlorine bleaches are best since chlorine can turn cottons yellow and weaken the fiber. Fabric softeners and dryer sheets reduce the absorbency of cotton textiles and are not recommended. If you can air-dry your towels, do. It brings the outside in and saves energy. Machine drying is best at a low temperature — trust us, everything still dries. Drying towels at high temperatures makes them feel hard and lose their soft plush. Place a set of our wool dryer balls inside the dryer to naturally soften the fabric and reduce drying time. Do not use fabric softeners. For the softest towels, tumble dry low and remove promptly.

Cotton Accent Rugs

We recommend machine washing on the gentle or delicate cycle with cold water and natural, plant based laundry detergent; do not bleach. Tumble dry low and remove promptly. Clip loose ends and pulled loops with scissors; do not pull.

Linen Bedding and Apparel

Our linen is machine washable. We recommend machine washing on the gentle or delicate cycle with like colors, with cold water and a natural, plant based laundry detergent. We do not recommend using whiteners, as bleaching agents may diminish the brilliance and depth of the colors; when needed, use only non-chlorine bleach. Line dry, or tumble dry low and remove promptly.

Table Linens

Machine wash on gentle or delicate cycle with cold water and natural, plant based laundry detergent; do not bleach. Tumble dry low or air dry. Wool and heavily embroidered table linens should be spot cleaned only.

Decorative Pillows

After removing the insert, hand or machine wash the cover in cold water on the gentle or delicate cycle. Hang dry. Iron cover inside out, using a warm iron for cotton and wool, or a hot iron for linen, as needed.

Wool Blankets

We recommend machine washing our wool blankets on the wool cycle with cold water and mild liquid detergent; do not bleach. Air-dry flat; do not wring or twist. Do not put in dryer; heat can damage wool fibers. Store wool blankets in a tightly sealed bin or heavy plastic bag to protect against pests; add cedar chips for extra protection.

Alpaca Throws + Accessories

We recommend machine washing our alpaca blankets and throws on the wool or delicate cycle with cold water and mild liquid detergent; do not bleach. Air-dry flat; do not wring or twist. Do not put in dryer; heat can damage alpaca fibers. Store alpaca blankets in a tightly sealed bin or heavy plastic bag to protect against pests; add cedar chips for extra protection.

Down Duvets and Pillows

A down duvet will last many years if cared for properly. Always protect your duvet and pillows from direct contact with body oils by using a duvet cover and pillow protector. Launder no more than once every two to three years unless there is obvious soiling; more frequent washing will shorten the life of your duvet and Pillows. Machine wash in an oversized machine without a center agitator, using warm water and mild detergent on the delicate cycle. Check seams and fabric before washing; if weakness is evident, do not home launder. In order to fully dry the down clusters and to prevent mildew from forming, thoroughly dry on low heat well beyond the point when the outer fabric feels dry (approximately 3–4 hours). Place a set of our wool dryer balls inside the dryer to aid in the drying process. Air-dry for an additional 24 hours to release any moisture. In between laundering, occasionally place outside in fresh air and direct sun to restore freshness. Frequent fluffing will help retain loft.
