Milton and Manor fabric is a natural product and has been woven with quality. Linen has a natural tendency to crease, enhancing its textured look; creases soften in use. A high linen/cotton content can pill and have fine threads visible, textured blends may also feature ‘slub’ effects. Natural fibres may give colour variations between batches. These are all characteristics which create distinctive features and do not affect durability. Our fabric will remain in perfect conditions for years, provided a few simple steps are followed.
Clean For fabric by the metre we recommend dry-cleaning preferably, or a delicate machine wash at 30°C with a low spin cycle. Do not overload the machine, linen items have to be thoroughly rinsed in plenty of water to remove all soap, detergent and residual soil and prevent the formation of the so-called age spots due to the oxidation effect of products.
Cushion covers we recommend dry-clean only.
For our cotton kitchenwares we recommend washing at 30°C on a delicates cycle and air dry (not straight back on a hot range cooker or in a tumble drier). Do not bleach and iron only on a low temperature. All natural fibres will shrink slightly when washed but the lower the temperature the better. The fabrics we have used are tough but treated gently they will last much longer! Our oven gloves and gauntlets will hold their protective properties for up to 5 years or 5 washes whichever comes first.
Dry Air drying our fabric is always recommended. Do not tumble dry.
Iron Iron while still slightly damp on the reverse side on a low temperature. For best results use a steam iron.
