We make beautiful products for your home in a responsible and respectful way. IN BED pieces are designed to last and we want you to love & use your products for years to come.

To help you look after your products and prolong their lifespan we’ve included below a series of product care tips that will ensure your bedding, sleepwear and homewares are looking their best for as long as possible whilst also being gentle on the earth.

It may come as a surprise to learn that half the carbon emission created from clothing & textiles is created during the use phase (when they are washed, tumble dried, ironed, used in any way.)

The best way to look after your textiles is by being gentle and considered. It’s no surprise this is also the most gentle on the earth; so not only are you taking care IN BED, you're taking care of the planet.

 

Linen

We recommend a lukewarm wash 30 degrees celsius (86 degrees fahrenheit) or less as this is the most eco friendly temperature to wash.

Avoid tumble drying where possible. Not only do dryers consume a high level of energy but they are harsh on your clothes and greatly shorten the lifespan of your linen and textiles.

Line dry your linen whenever possible. Not only is it gentler on your clothes & the planet but sunlight is a natural antibacterial agent and also helps to brighten whites (please note we advise against leaving your linens on the clothes line for an extended period as sunlight can bleach colours if left for too long)

Use an eco friendly detergent. Some of our favourites are listed at the bottom of this page.

 

Cotton Gauze

As an open weave we recommend paying special attention to pulling threads. Avoid anything sharp when handling it - rings, nails, zippers etc.

Gentle machine wash separately (again avoid to mix with any items with zips, metal fasteners etc)

We recommend a lukewarm wash 30 degrees celsius (86 degrees fahrenheit) or less as this is the most eco friendly temperature to wash at or below.

Do not leave wet in the machine for a long period of time.

Avoid tumble drying where possible. Not only do dryers consume a high level of energy but they are harsh on your clothes and greatly shorten the lifespan of your linen and textiles.

Line dry your linen whenever possible. Not only is it gentler on your clothes & the planet but sunlight is a natural antibacterial agent and also helps to brighten whites (please note we advise against leaving your linens on the clothes line for an extended as sunlight can bleach colours if left for too long.)

Alpaca & Wool Throws

Alpaca naturally repels dirt & odor meaning it needs minimal laundering (we recommend once per season when in use unless soiled).

Dry clean only, sparingly.

 

Cashmere & Knits

Our knitwear is made from premium fibres and needs to be treated with the utmost care & attention to retain it’s beautiful hand feel and appeal.

Gentle hand wash with lukewarm water & an eco friendly detergent.

Dry flat in the shade.

Do not machine wash, bleach, tumble dry or dry clean.

 

Cotton Corduroy & Velvet

We recommend a gentle, cold machine wash for our cotton corduroy & velvet cushion covers. This is also the most eco-friendly temperature to wash.

Wash inside out.

Dry in the shade.

Do not bleach, tumble dry or dry clean.

Use an eco friendly detergent. Some of our favourites are listed at the bottom of this page.

 

Cotton Towels

Wash before first use.

We recommend a gentle machine lukewarm wash 30 degrees celsius (86 degrees fahrenheit) or less as this is the most eco friendly temperature to wash.

Line or tumble dry (tumble dry will help keep your towels soft and fluffy however we first recommend a line dry as it is more eco friendly)

Use an eco friendly detergent. Some of our favourites are listed at the bottom of this page.

Avoid fabric softeners as this may affect your towels natural absorbency.

If pile loops get caught and pull free, cut them off at the base with sharp scissors. Cutting loose ends will prevent affecting other areas. Leaving loose threads dangling will cause it to unravel.


Keeping your towel soft & fluffy

When you first receive your new towel we recommend shaking it out well to loosen the pile. We also recommend storing your towel somewhere a little humid (like in the bathroom while you take a shower) and either using or washing it straight away to bring back the soft & fluffy feel which may have been a little squashed during transit.

 

Mending & Repairs

Over the course of their lifespan, your products may snag on rouge zippers or pointy corners, be a little too loved by your furry friends or simply lose a button or tie in a tumble dry.

In these instances we encourage you to mend your IN BED items and believe that the odd patch or mismatched button adds character and appeal rather than spoiling a product.

No matter how old your IN BED product is, if you find yourself missing a button, duvet tie, zipper or are in need of a patch of linen fabric, we urge you to get in touch as we will happily send you a replacement piece to mend your beloved piece free of charge.
