Tumble Drying vs Air-Drying; Everything You Need to Know

You've finally decided that beautiful Breeze Linen is the bedding for you, now it's time to understand how best to look after it so that it lasts for many washes and nights to come. We have a full care guide outlined here but we wanted to delve a little deeper into the drying processes we advise and what to avoid.

When it comes to drying clothes and linens, most people opt for tumble drying or air-drying and we often get asked is one method more favourable to follow over the other. The answer is, like most things in life, there are positives and negatives to both.

BREEZE LINEN BEDDING BUNDLE - MIDNIGHT

Tumble Drying 

As linen is one of the strongest natural fibres available it is totally fine to pop it in the tumble dryer for convenient and quick drying - we know how difficult it is to go even one night without Amurelle Breeze Linen after all! However, linen must be pre-washed in order to avoid shrinkage while tumble drying. Fear not, all of Amurelle 100% French flax linen is garment washed for softness and to avoid shrinkage. Just remember to wash at a low to medium temperature as this avoids unnecessary wear and tear on the fabric.

Air Drying

Air-drying is a very effective way to dry your Breeze Linen and overall it keeps it in better condition for longer. This is because it is gentler on the fabric fibres and avoids friction that sometimes occurs from dryers. This process is also more environmentally friendly as it reduces water and electricity usage. The only watch-out is to avoid direct sunlight for a prolonged period of time to avoid fading of colours.
