Linen Care

Caring for Your Linens

Proper care of your Peacock Alley linens will ensure a greater longevity. The indulgent luxury of Peacock Alley sheets will bring you endless nights of comfort.

Home Care

Machine launder in cold water on the gentle cycle with a cold water rinse. Use a mild detergent without added bleach, whiteners or softeners. Do not use a liquid fabric softner. This can damage the cotton fibers.

Tumble dry on low heat. Remove sheets promptly to prevent wrinkling. If desired, press linens while slightly damp on the reverse side of the fabric using a steam iron on the hot/warm setting.

Please Note

Certain facial creams and body lotions contain ingredients such as peroxide, bleaching agents, oils or acids. Some of these agents may cause discoloration upon laundering.

All natural fiibers will shrink to some extent. You can expect about 3% shrinkage wtih Egyptian cotton. To minimize shrinkage, avoid hot water washing and high heat drying. Never over-dry your linens.

Caring for your Matelasse

Matelasse French for "quilted" or "cushioned," and in usage with fabric, refers to quilted textiles. Peacock Alley's matelasse fabrics are woven on jacquard looms in Portugal and Italy. Crafted from the finest quality materials and workmanship, your Peacock Alley matelasse is designed to be enjoyed for years to come.

Home Care

Many of our matelasses are machine washable. If you choose to launder your matelasse at home, machine wash cold on a delicate or gentle cycle with a mild detergent. Avoid using any harsh detergents or bleach. Tumble dry your matelasse on low or using the air feature on your dryer. High heat can cause excessive shrinkage.

Professional Laundering

If you choose to have your matelasse professionally laundered, ask your cleaner for a "cold water block process," which will help retain the matelasses size and shape.

Dry Clean

Please dry clean any matelasse that contains a linen blend.

Please Note

All natural fibers will shrink to some extent. Our coverlets are generously cut to allow for a normal shrinkage of 3 to 5 inches in length and width. Our 100% cotton matelasses is all natural and slight variations in color and texture arise during weaving and dyeing. These variations lend beauty and character which is the perfection of matelasse.

Caring for your Down Bedding

Cleaning Down Bedding

Spot clean your pillow or duvet cover with a gentle detergent or linen wash product. As with your pillow case, wash your pillow protector weekly to keep the pillow clean and extend its life. To freshen your down or down alternative products, place outside in direct sunlight. To clean your down or down alternative products, we recommend a professional launderer familiar with cleaning these types of products. We do not recommend dry cleaning as the chemicals can actually break down the fluffy fibers of the down. 

Keep Your Down Fluffy

Every few months, to help keep moisture down and the fluffing up, toss your down duvet into a front-loading dryer set on air or low. We recommend periodic laundering by a professional to maintain optimal fluff.

Covering Your Investment

Use a pillow protector and a duvet cover to help keep your bedding nice and clean. Make sure to continuously use these items to maintain our 100-night warranty*. *Some restrictions apply.
