Unlike most linen which has quite a crisp hand, the Ellie is a sateen linen which is soft and luxurious to the touch, which will only soften more as it’s washed. Edged with a beautiful hemstitch, Ellie offers the coolness of linen with a comfort that is usually ascribed to cotton or cotton blends. Linen has never been more luxurious.
WASHING AND DRYING
Machine wash using moderate temperatures and gentle cycles in a small to moderate load. Do not use ‘water saver’ settings. Select a mild soap such as Tide Free, Linen Wash, or Ivory. Do not use any type of bleach or fabric softener. Machine dry on gentle using a moderate temperature; do not over dry. Ironing can be done on the appropriate fabric setting while the fabric is still slightly damp.
Do not use caustic soaps, bleaches, Persil, or Woolite detergents. Sleep in nightwear made with natural fabrics; nightwear made with synthetic fibers is one of the biggest causes of pilling. Do not launder with any articles that are heavy or coarse, they can scour the fabric. Acne medications and whitening toothpastes contain chemicals that will bleach almost everything.
