Caring for your clothing

With a little love and care, your nightwear and loungewear can last for restful sleep upon restful sleep and you can enjoy your new pjs for many relaxing years to come. Here are our top tips for keeping your nightwear good as new.

If you need any help at all, we're always here to listen and advise so please don't hesitate to get in touch with our lovely team, we're here on 01243 822 599 (and we love a good nightwear natter).

Caring For Your Robes

There are a few belts and bobs to remember when washing your 100% cotton or linen robes, but in general it's a breeze and you'll soon get into the swing of it.

When your robe is ready for a freshen up (or you've managed to spill your breakfast down it), pop it on a warm wash with similar colours (you don't want your white robe turning blue because of that random sock). Make sure you reshape your robe as it dries and simply line dry (or pop on a low heat tumble dry if necessary).  Your linen robe might benefit from an extra spin to get rid of any excess water before hanging it out to dry.

If ironing is your thing, you can iron linen and cotton robes on a warm setting on the reverse.

Caring For Your Jersey Garments

Looking after your soft and stretchy jersey nightwear is easy.

These can be washed up to 40 degrees, but we recommend washing at 30 on a gentle wash to be kinder to the environment. Always wash with similar colours, then line dry and reshape if necessary.

Try not to mix your colours and whites together, especially because some of our piece-dyed items may leave a little colour behind in the machine during the first couple of washes.

Jersey can be tumble dried on lower heat, but we always prefer to dry on the line or airer to save energy.

Our brushed cotton needs a slightly gentler aftercare because of its beautiful soft finish. We recommend giving it a gentle cool wash, with similar colours, then line dry or dry flat near a radiator on cooler and wetter days. Reshape your nightwear as it dries. Please do not tumble dry, this fabric does not like the heat.

Caring For Your Woven Nightwear

Looking after our 100% cotton or linen woven nightwear is super simple.  These are made from our best selling fabrics and all can be washed up to 40 degrees, although we always recommend washing at 30 on a gentle wash to be kinder to the world.

Wash with similar colours, reshape whilst damp, then line dry or tumble dry on low heat. You can iron on a medium heat setting if you love a crease free look. Linen is made to be creased so don’t feel that ironing is a must here at all.

Tumble drying can slowly break down any fabric, and uses lots of energy, so we say avoid if you can. We know it's not always ideal or possible to line dry (thanks so much to our British weather), so if you need to, flat drying close to the radiator is your next best option. It should be said that a gentle tumble with a softener will make our 100% linen nightwear feel super soft if that is your preference.

How To Keep White Nightwear And Colours From Fading

The bright side (see what we did there) of line drying is that your lovely new white cotton robe can catch some rays, which in turn acts as nature's very own bleach. Remember to not leave your darker coloured nightwear outside for long periods of time as the sun's rays can start to discolour your non-white garments and none of us wants that.

When it comes to laundry, a good detergent always helps too. We adore everything from our friends at Wilton London who make the loveliest smelling, good-for-the-planet, super-duper laundry detergents and we can't imagine using anything else now.

Thanks for reading folks. Do let us know if we can help further; we love to talk and we're always happy to help. or call us on 01243 822 599
