Linen Bedding Wash & Care Guide

Did you know that linen actually becomes softer and more absorbent after every wash? Proper linen care will keep them soft and cozy for years to come.

Linen—Washing Machine or Dry Cleaning?

When linen is woven into bedding fabrics, it is also specially treated to be machine-washed or hand washed. Linen bed sheets don't require dry-cleaning; however, if you do have linen clothes or garments, dry cleaning is often recommended.

When using a household washing machine, wash linen bedding in lukewarm or cold water as part of your linen care routine. If possible, use soft water for your machine. Wash on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent to keep the fabric fibres soft. 

To dry, you can machine dry (tumble low) your bedding fabrics as long as you do so at lower temperatures. If you remove the fabric before it's fully dry and hang to dry, you can avoid the linen becoming stiff. 

Washing & Drying Linen - Quick Guide

Sömn recommends machine wash under 30ºC / 86ºF on a gentle cycle with similar colours using a mild detergent and hang to dry to preserve the linen fibres.

There is no need for fabric softener. It will coat the linen fibres and prevent them from properly wicking moisture away.

If using a dryer, tumble dry on low heat and remove while still slightly damp to air dry.

Do I need an iron for linen care?

Linen naturally has ruffles and creases that contribute to its softness. There is no need to iron linen fabrics. If you choose to iron, use medium-hot temperatures on a steam setting while the fabric is mildly damp.

Ironing Bedding - Quick Guide

If there's a need to iron, use a low setting. Lighter colours, like Off White, are better ironed on both sides. Darker linen colours should be pressed only on the backside.

Can I store bed linens in the closet?

You have two choices for storing linen bed fabrics: hang or store flat. Wherever you choose, ensure it's a cool, dry, and well-ventilated area. We recommend storing in acid-free tissue paper between the folds (not regular tissue paper as it can stain white linens) for longer-term storage. Tissue paper will help soften any fold creases, which eventually weaken fibres.

Don't be tempted to store linen bed fabrics in bathrooms because the moist, warmer environments will lead to mildew on your sheets. If you wish, you can store linens with scented sachets (as long as it's a white sachet to avoid staining.
