Caring for your CROP linen items

Linen can be laundered with confidence and by caring for your linens thoughtfully, they will live long and age beautifully.

It is important that you select an appropriate washing agent. Many detergents contain additives such as optical brighteners that work very well on white linens but can discolour colored linens. We recommend that you check that your detergent does not contain a whitening agent. If unsure, you can use a soap powder. If you have hard water with a high lime content, we recommend that you use a softener. Please also unfold your linen items completely before washing.


  • Hand wash at a maximum temperature of 40º C. Spin dry to remove excess liquid if desired.
  • Gentle machine at a maximum temperature of 40º C .
  • Do not dry clean.
  • Do not bleach.
  • Do not wring.
  • Line dry. In regions with strong sunlight, we recommend drying linen items with the wrong side receiving direct sunlight.
  • Normally we would recommend that you do not tumble dry linen items but with care they can be partially tumble dried on medium. It is important that your linen items are not over-dried. Happily, you will find that damp linen is ideal for pressing out crumples and creases.
  • Press on the reverse side with a medium iron with steam, a spray atomiser filled with distilled water or press whilst damp.

Please note that certain clothes can damage our products. Denim jeans are a good example of this. The dye from the jeans can rub off and transfer to our items. This damage will be permanent and cannot be removed from the fabric. Please keep this in mind when wearing and/or using our CROP linen products. Please remember that once the item is in your care, you are responsible for what happens to it.

If you would like a more accurate estimate or require your item/s to be shipped earlier, please contact us as soon as possible after placing your order.


All of our fabrics are made of 100% Belgian linen. Slubs and yarn variations are inherent natural characteristics of our fabrics. Images of products in this store show an example of the product and not the actual product you will receive. We make every effort to ensure that the colors are displayed as accurately as possible.  However, colours will appear differently from device to device and we cannot guarantee the color display accuracy of your personal device. If for any reason you are unable to place your order through our online store, please email us with your order and shipping address and we will email you a PayPal invoice that you can pay securely online.


We accept payment via Paypal and Stripe. We do not collect your credit card details, your payment is processed securely by your preferred payment gateway. For French customers, we also accept payment via bank transfer or by cheque. Please email us at and we will contact you directly regarding your order.

We use Paypal Express checkout which automatically hides your billing address from us and the postal service. This may be of particular interest to our customers who wish to maintain their privacy to the fullest extent.

Visiting the Workshop & Open Hours

Given our location and the fact that our work often prevents us from breaking or putting down our tools, we ask that visitors make an appointment so as to ensure that you have our full attention. We are open between 10 am and 7pm Monday to Friday but we’re happy to schedule studio visits in the evenings and on week-ends too.

Dolfin Chocolate Shipping & Storage

Chocolate is a fragile and complex substance. It is very sensitive to odours, light and variations in temperature: so it is best kept in a cool, dark, dry place, preferably between 14 and 18°C.

Due to these factors, please consider your current local weather conditions before ordering chocolate.

Why isn’t my item branded?

CROP linen items are made to a very high standard, using materials of extraordinary quality. They embody these intrinsic and evident qualities and as such, they can stand on their own merit. We hope that if someone asks you about your CROP linen items that you will share your experience with them and hopefully recommend CROP linen to them.

Are your blog posts sponsored?

None of my blog posts are sponsored by third parties, either in money or kind. When I mention other makers, growers or food producers in my posts, I do so in support of these individuals and their businesses. This show of community support is important to me.
