To keep your wind down essentials at their very best, follow our easy care tips.

Bedding

Love your bedding and it'll love you back. 

Store your bedding away from direct sunlight, in a cool, dry place. Avoid storing in plastic - we recommend using breathable natural storage bags. To maintain the uniquely Bedfolk colours, do not use any products containing bleach when using or washing your bedding.

100% Cotton Bedding

1. Wash

Wash your cotton bedding separately from your other laundry, using a small amount of mild liquid detergent. We recommend a gentle 40-degree cycle, but you can wash up to 60.

2. Dry

Tumble-dry your cotton bedding on a low heat. Be careful not to over-dry as excessive heat can damage the threads, causing them to lose their softness and reducing their lifespan. If you don’t have a tumble dryer, then line drying works well too!

3. Iron

Our Relaxed style has been designed to be un-ironed, as it has a natural ‘lived in’ look. If you want to experience our Classic Cotton Bedding and Luxe Cotton Bedding at their very best, give them a quick iron. Our Luxe Cotton Bedding is a sateen weave - to restore the natural sheen after washing, simply iron to smooth the fibres. 

To make ironing as easy as possible, we recommend removing from the dryer whilst slightly damp, and ironing straight away. You can iron or steam to remove wrinkles, or just let your bedding be. 


100% Linen Bedding
1. Wash

Wash your linen bedding separately from your other laundry, using a small amount of mild liquid detergent. We recommend a gentle 40-degree cycle, but you can wash up to 60 (though washing linen on very high temperatures can make it stiffer when dried).

2. Dry

Linen is at its cloud-like best after a gentle tumble-dry. Tumble your Linen bedding on a low heat. Be careful not to over-dry as excessive heat can damage your bedding and make it feel less soft. If you don’t have a tumble dryer, then you can line dry, but your linen will have a crisper feel. We would recommend steaming line-dried linen to help re-soften the fibres (they will also naturally soften over time as you sleep in them).

3. Iron

Our linen bedding is at its soft and effortless best un-ironed, but if you prefer a crisper hand feel and smoother look, iron your linen inside out, on a medium heat, whilst your bedding is still a little damp. Alternatively, a steamer can be used to help re-soften the fibres and remove any stubborn creases.


Duvets & Pillows

On arrival, we recommend allowing your duvet and pillows to air / rest in a warm place for 24 hours. This will allow the filling to ‘re-loft’ and return to its soft and fluffy best before use. It is also worth regularly flipping your duvet - it will last longer if rotated on a regular basis.

1. Wash

To keep your duvets and pillows at their very best, we'd highly recommend professional laundering, as both the washing machine and tumble dryer should have 50% empty capacity to allow the products to re-loft. 

If you prefer to dry clean, our 100% Down and Recycled Down products are suitable for this. Down Alternative duvet / pillows are not suitable for dry cleaning.

2. Dry

As per washing, we'd always recommend professional laundering to ensure the products are completely dry (which is important to avoid odours and keep the fill at its fluffy best). Professional laundering also means the duvet / pillows have the capacity to re-loft in a large commercial drum.

We recommend air-drying the Down Alternative duvet / pillows, as high temperatures can damage / melt the filling.


Quilts (inc. Quilted Squares)
1. Wash

If you have a large enough drum to wash at home, use a small amount of mild liquid detergent when washing your Quilt. We recommend a gentle 40-degree cycle, but you can wash up to 60.

Alternatively, if you are unable to fit your quilt into the drum of your washing machine, we recommend professional laundering.

2. Dry

Our Quilts can be tumble-dried, do so separately on a low heat (excessive heat can damage the threads and filling). If this isn't possible, then drying flat or over a drying rack is the next best thing. Do not iron your Cotton Quilt or Quilted Squares as this can damage the filling.


Linen & Cotton Throw
1. Wash

Wash your Linen & Cotton Throw separately from your other laundry, using a small amount of mild liquid detergent. We recommend a gentle 40-degree cycle, but you can wash up to 60 (though washing your linen and cotton throw on very high temperatures can make it stiffer when dried).

2. Dry

To dry your Throw, you can choose to tumble or air-dry. Be careful not to over-dry, as excessive heat can damage your Throw and make creasing more likely.  If you don’t have a tumble dryer, then you can line dry, but due to the linen content it will have a crisper feel.

2. Iron

Our Linen & Cotton Throw doesn’t need to be ironed, but if it has become a little creased just gently iron on a medium heat, whilst still a little damp. Alternatively, a steamer can be used to help re-soften the fibres and remove any stubborn creases.

Bath

Please do not dry clean your towels / robe. Be careful to keep your bath essentials away from household cleaners (such as bleach) which can cause damage. 

Plush Towels
1. Wash

To keep your Plush Towels soft and fluffy, wash separately from your other laundry to avoid items that may pull the plush fabric (such as zips, velcro and hooks). In the event of a snagged loop, please avoid pulling - simply snip off with scissors. We recommend a gentle 40-degree cycle with a mild liquid detergent, but you can wash up to 60 (though washing your towels on high heat will cause the terry-towelling to become stiffer when dried).

2. Dry

Tumble dry on low for optimal softness and remove promptly. Alternatively, you can line dry.


Plush Robe
1. Wash

Wash your Plush Robe using a small amount of mild liquid detergent to keep it soft and fluffy. We recommend a gentle 40-degree cycle, but you can wash up to 60 (though washing your robe on high heat will cause the terry-towelling to become stiffer when dried). Wash separately from your other laundry to avoid items that may pull the plush fabric (such as zips, velcro and hooks). In the event of a snagged loop, please avoid pulling - simply snip off with scissors.

2. Dry

Tumble dry on low for optimal softness and remove promptly. Alternatively, you can line dry.


Everyday Robe
1. Wash

Just pop your Everyday Robe into the machine on a gentle cycle in warm water. We’d recommend a 40-degree cycle, but you can wash up to 60. Use a small amount of mild liquid detergent, and wash with similar colours / fabrics.

2. Dry

We’d recommend air drying to keep your Everyday Robe super-soft. If tumbling, please do so on a low heat (and remove promptly).
