It’s so important to remember that fabrics and compositions vary significantly between products, and they don’t all like being treated the same.
To extend the life of your items and keep them looking and feeling wonderful, make sure you check the fibre content and care guidelines before washing or drying. The easiest way to do this is to read the care label on your product, showing instructions for how best to wash, dry, and maintain your bedding.
Caring for your Quilt or Duvet
Natural fill quilts including cotton, wool, feather and down can be dry cleaned. Should a spill occur, we suggest spot cleaning with a damp cloth and airing the quilt thoroughly. To be sure, always check the care label before cleaning your quilt, duvet, or doona.
The quickest and most effective way to revive your quilt is to air regularly. The best conditions are in sunlight on a breezy day.
During sleep, moisture and oils are naturally absorbed into your quilt or duvet. Over time, this tends to build and “smother” the filling which causes it to clump and lose its loft. Airing your quilt regularly will dry out any moisture, allowing the fibres to open.
After airing, give your quilt a good shake and fluff before making your bed to ensure the fibres are at their maximum loft. This will allow them to capture and retain more body heat for a warm and cosy night’s sleep. Doing this regularly will extend the life and performance of your quilt.
Our microfibre quilts are machine washable, but just like natural fibre quilts, should be aired regularly to release any moisture absorbed through use (we recommend every 6-8 weeks).
Caring for your Mattress Protector, Mattress Topper, or Underblanket
Our mattress protectors vary in fabrication, so be sure to check the label prior to washing. Most are hand or machine washable on a cold or warm gentle cycle. Do not tumble dry, line dry in shade.
Our mattress protectors, underblankets, and mattress toppers are dry cleanable and may be machine washed.
However, due to their size and weight, we recommend professional laundering in a large capacity machine.
Before using or storing, ensure your items are fully dry to avoid moisture build up and maintain loft.
Caring for your Pillows
Down and Feather pillows are to be dry cleaned only. Fluff and air these pillows before use, after dry cleaning, and regularly in between.
Our Hollowlight pillows require a warm hand wash. Rinse well and do not tumble dry or dry clean.
Our Microfibre pillow is machine washable. Either a warm hand wash or gentle machine wash is recommended. Line dry in the shade, or tumble dry on a low heat setting, turning frequently. Do not dry clean and be sure to fluff and air regularly.
When it comes to selecting or caring for your bedding, it’s always best to ask! We want you to find the perfect product for you and ensure it delivers quality and comfort for years to come. If our product care label or the guide above hasn’t answered your questions, either head in store or contact one of our customer service representatives for further assistance. If in doubt, reach out.
