Linen Sheets, Duvet Covers, & Pillow Cases
Primary Goods Linen bedding is made from 100% French Linen and any new linen should be washed before the first use. Expect to catch a hearty helping of lint the first time you wash your sheets, but the quantity will decrease with each cycle, while softness increases!
- Keep linen separate from other fabrics.
- Separate white and color fabric (like momma taught you).
- Wash using a warm, gentle cycle with liquid detergent (we like Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Laundry Detergent).
- Tumble dry using a warm, gentle cycle.
- Stop the drying cycle just before sheets are dried completely, put them on your bed fresh out of the dryer to minimize wrinkles.
- Use Primary Goods' wool dryer balls instead of dryer sheets.
- Use bleach, harsh detergents, powder detergent or fabric softener.
- Fill the machine to capacity.
- Wash bedding with any items that have zippers, studs, or hooks.
Cotton Sheets, Duvet Covers, & Pillow Cases
Primary Goods' cotton bedding is made from 100% long-staple cotton with a percale weave that gives the fabric a look that’s elegant and smooth. Even though our sheets come pre-washed, we still recommend brand new bedding before first time use.
- Wash colors in cold water.
- Wash white, natural, and ivory colors in warm water.
- Tumble dry on medium heat.
- Use a warm iron for a crisper, cleaner look.
- Use chlorinated bleach—it will damage quality cotton fibers over time. Only use non-chlorinated bleach, if necessary.
- Reduce wrinkles by—
- Removing cotton sheets promptly after washing.
- Shaking sheets out prior to placing them in the dryer.
- Removing sheets while they are still slightly damp and hang to finish drying.
- Machine-wash cold using natural detergents.

The Silver Pillow
Your pillow will be getting lots of use (as it should!) and will need a wash. Washing your silver pillow every 3-6 months will keep it clean and make it last.
- Unzip and separate the outer pillow from the inner pillow
- Rezip the outer pillow.
- Insert both pillow parts into the washing machine. For best results, use a front-loading machine.
- Wash on a gentle, cold water cycle, using mild liquid detergent.
- Tumble Dry on low temperature with dryer balls.
