(icon 1 - machine wash laundry label)

  • Linen is machine washable

Wild Fig linen is stonewashed, which allows for the linen to be washed on a delicate cycle using lukewarm to cold water. Wash your sheets with a gentle detergent to ensure it last longer

  • Tumble drying is not a necessity. That said, if need be, tumble dry your pieces on a cool air or low-temperature setting

  • Gone are the days of spending hours with your iron
  • If you do feel the need to press your precious linen sheets, ensure the sheet is damp before you start
  • Press on both sides of the fabric unless it is a dark stained sheet, then only press on the reverse side of the fabric
  • Use the medium-hot steam setting on your iron

  • For a first time wash it is best to wash your linen separately
  • To lessen the crease, take your sheets out of the washing machine soon as the cycle has stopped 
  • Dry lying flat or air and line dry the fabric
  • Ensure not to use high heats when drying to prevent shrinkage
