Washing and care instructions

A first-rate linen fabric is, when well treated, beautifully shiny, smooth and cool. As a highly absorbent material, linen is an unsurpassed material for both toilet and kitchen towels, even though the great beauty of the material has lead to it being used primarily for elegant cloths, napkins, curtains and other more exclusive items. Linen sheets are now popular once again, not least for their beauty and their coolness. All linen consists exclusively of flax thread. In half linen, the warp is composed of cotton yarn and the weft of flax thread. It is important to remember when considering care of linen that cotton soils more quickly than linen and must therefore be washed more often. So even if pure linen is a little more expensive, it may be economic in the long run if the article is to be used often.

Klässbols Linen Weaving Mill recommends following treatment:
The article is washed according to whether it is natural/unbleached, semi-bleached or coloured. Unbleached preserves its original colour best if perborate and optical brightener-free washing detergent is used. Although linen, like cotton, has a high abrasion resistance and tensile strength when wet, one should always try to wash linen as gently as possible. This way it will last for generations.

The washing temperature should be approximately 60° C providing more pronounced stains do not necessitate a higher temperature. The temperature should not, however, exceed 80° C as this can reduce the elasticity, shininess and strength of the linen. For thinner fabrics such as a number of curtains, a more gentle washing method should be chosen than that used for thick cloths and other items. This is most easily achieved by using a large quantity of water in relation to the number of items being washed.

Particularly delicate items may be put in a net bag to reduce wear and tear by the washing machine. The items should be shortly spin-dried as gently as possible.

Never mix linen with dark-coloured fabrics. For coloured linen, follow the detergent manufacturer’s instructions for ordinary 60° C colour wash. If a washing machine is not used, it is advisable to check the temperature with help of a thermometer to ensure that the fabric is not washed  for longer than 15 minutes once maximum temperature has been reached.

Avoid laying wet linen fabrics on top of one another. Roll them together instead while still damp. Natural coloured and coloured linen should not be dried in bright sunlight. We recommend that all smooth linen textiles are mangled cold to preserve the beauty of stiff, shiny napkins and tablecloths. Mangle napkins and handtowels unfolded. Lay four to six on a table in a step-like formation, one on top of the other and pull them into shape before mangling. Cloths and sheets may be folded into three or four. Try, when possible, to fold in different places each time the fabric is mangled, as the strain is greatest at the folds.

Linen should not be tumbler-dried.
Allow approximately 5-7 % shrinkage both lengthwise and widthwise.
