CARE

Everything you need to know to keep your well-loved Dallas Daws Designs pieces looking fresh for years to come.

-

Linen

All of our linen pieces are sent to you laundered. We wash them after they're sewn so they're pre-shrunk and the seams are set. For a lived-in, rumpled look, we suggest caring for it in the following way:

Machine wash. Linen is strong when wet, so it handles machine washing well. It also softens up beautifully over each wash and dry cycle. Wash in cold water with like colors and tumble dry on low. Iron with steam as needed.

These pieces can also be cared for any other way you choose. If you'd like a more pristine look, they can be hand washed and hung to dry or dry cleaned.

Other care. Linen is easily steamed or ironed to remove any wrinkles and help achieve a more polished look.

 

Silk Crepe + Raw Silk

Depending on the look you're going for, there are a few ways to care for your silk crepe and raw silk pieces.

#1 - Hand wash. This will preserve the color longer, as well as the texture. Simply hand wash in cold water with a delicate detergent, with like colors, and hang to dry.

#2 - Machine wash. For a more lived-in look, you can machine wash. The texture will soften over time and colors will fade. Wash in cold water with like colors, and either hang dry or tumble dry on low.

#3 - Dry Clean. If dry cleaning is your thing, this will keep the fabric looking pristine. We recommend you only use a green dry cleaner with this method.

Other care. Silk can feel stiff after hanging to dry, but can easily be softened. Using an iron on steam setting or a steamer can soften and get any wrinkles out.

 

Wool Melton

Depending on the look you'd like, there are a few ways to care for your wool blend pieces.

#1 - Hand wash. This will preserve the texture. Simply hand wash in cold water with a delicate detergent, with like colors, and hang to dry. If you are sensitive to wool, you can use The Laundress detergent or add a touch of conditioner to soften your wool.

#2 - Machine wash. For a more lived-in look, you can machine wash.* Wash in cold water with like colors, and either hang dry or tumble dry on low.

*Machine washing wool or wool blends can cause the tightening of the fibers, known as felting. This can cause slight shrinkage, but has not resulted in noticeable shrinkage, through our testing. 

#3 - Dry Clean. Dry cleaning wool will keep the fabric looking pristine. We recommend you only use a green dry cleaner with this method.

Other care. Wool melton can be steamed or pressed on medium heat with steam to soften any wrinkles and keep it looking polished.
