Additional

At Beyond France, we spend a lot of time washing and ironing linen so these suggestions come from experience:

Washing linen
If the linen is heavily soiled, it can be washed at up to 60 ° with a 90° pre-wash. The Linen can also be sprayed or soaked with stain remover. To save energy and the environment do not wash hotter than necessary, 40° is sufficient for light soiling.

Dyed Linen should be washed at 40°, in a separate wash.
The Indigo colour is achieved by a natural dying process, which means there is natural colour fade

Drying and ironing linen
Linen is renowned for creasing. So, to minimise creasing and make ironing easier:

Iron linen when it still damp.

Use a tumble dryer to make the linen feel soft and easy to iron. Even a short blast in the dryer will make a difference.

Don't dry in summer sun as the linen fibres will dry like cardboard.

Don't leave dyed products in direct sunlight. If desirable natural linen can be lightened in the sun.
