Our towels arrive unwashed; if your towel seems stiff, this will go away after washing. Please be aware that unwashed linen may shrink moderately.
Contrary to popular belief, linen does not require special treatment. Simply hand wash, or machine wash with non-chlorine detergent and like colors. Line dry, or tumble dry on lowest heat. Adding a tablespoon or two of hair conditioner to the wash helps keep linen fibers soft and strong.
