Care and Cleaning

The team here at The Little Linen Company hope you enjoy your baby product as much as we loved creating and making it. Here is a rundown of our care and cleaning information to help ensure your nursery item lasts. 

Handy Tips:

  • As a general rule, over drying damages fabrics
  • We recommend not to use fabric softeners or bleach
  • Keep all of our products away from fire
  • If your item has shrunk with harsh washing and drying you can grow it back to size using a higher than recommended heat while ironing.  
  • Trim loose threads if they appear.
