Does linen shrink?
Yes, linen will shrink if you aren’t careful. And once it has shrunk, it’s most likely irreparable. The biggest culprits in linen shrinkage are washing in hot water and using the dryer on high heat. Not all linen will shrink the same, in fact 3 to 4 per cent is normal, but some linen can shrink up to 10 per cent. To avoid this, look for linen clothing for women that has been pre-shrunk, and always wash on cold then line dry.
Does linen stretch?
On the other hand, linen clothing does not stretch. Linen is a very durable fabric and is very hard wearing when used for clothing. However, due to this low elasticity, if the fabric is folded or ironed in the same spot repeatedly, the fibres will break down.
How to wash linen?
Linen clothing can be machine washed but always double-check the garment’s washing instructions before putting it in the machine – some items will need to be hand washed or dry cleaned. Separate linen from other fabrics and separate by colours. Set your machine to a cold to lukewarm, gentle cycle and don’t overfill the drum. Use a gentle, high-quality detergent and never use bleach. Line dry if possible, but if you must use a dryer, set it as low as possible, and finish on a clothes rack.
All our linen clothing for women is made of the highest-quality handmade linen. Update your wardrobe with Eadie Lifestyle with pieces you love today.
