Should I wash my bed linen before I use it?

We use natural fibers in our bed linen, you will notice that your new bed linen linen will shrink a little on the first wash. We recommend that you wash it before you use it. You may notice the size feeling bigger on your fitted sheets, don’t worry if it’s not a perfect fit when you first take it out of the packet. It will shrink to fit after it’s first wash.

Which bed linen is best to choose for minimal ironing?

If you’re not a fan of ironing, we would recommend you choose a Sateen finish. This takes the least amount of ironing (if any when you dry flat). We would advise you to stay away from pure cotton percale if you don’t want to iron every time and you like a crease free bed. Percale needs the most work, but is certainly worth it and one of our very best sellers.
