It is not necessary to wash the linen before first use, since there are no harmful chemicals.

All bed linen will see shrinkage between 3-5% after a few washes. This has been taken into consideration in the sizing of the products.


Washing instructions - Towels

Please wash your new towels before first use them so they get a better absorbency. In order for your towels to maintain their quality over time, we recommend the following:

Tvätta i 40 graderYou can wash your Alva towels in 60°, however for a more environmentally sustainable wash we recommend 40°

Avoid fabric softener, it can create a thin film around the terry cloth and impair the ability to absorb water.

Tumble dry on medium heat if you want a soft and fluffy towel. If you prefer a more rough feeling, we recommend hang drying.

Avoid contact with any bleach as it may cause stains of discoloration (bleach may be present in e.g. toothpaste and soap)
