Following our brushed cotton flannel bed linen caring tips will lengthen the life of your sheets and duvet cover sets to keep them looking and feeling beautiful for longer.
Care instructions for washing flannel bedding
Our flannel bedding is slightly oversized to allow for shrinkage during washing, this will ensure your fitted sheets will still fit the bed after laundering.
Shake flannel sheets before laundering to remove loose fibres and dust.
Cold machine wash and warm tumble dry to remove excess lint, it may take a few washes for linting to subside.
Clean out the dryer filter regularly as it will fill up fast with flannel fluff - don't be alarmed by the volume.
Shake each flannel item after drying, before folding or putting on bed (best to do this outside).
Avoid laundering flannel with dark bedding or clothing.
Do not soak. Do not use bleach or fabric softeners. Bleach can weaken bed linen fabric, and fabric softener contains silicon which creates a waterproof coating on textiles.
