Do linen curtains block light?
This will depend on the weight of the linen fabric. Medium-weight linen fabrics will let some light through, but they also look lovely with sunlight passing through them – something which cannot be achieved with other fabrics. However, if you wish to completely block out light, we recommend you make your linen curtains with blackout or thicker bonded blackout (blackout with a thick bonded fleece layer) lining.
Can you see through linen curtains?
Yes, you can see through some of our linen ranges. For example, our sheer linen curtains allow light to pass through them and will give your space a gentle, warm touch. But we also carry heavier fabrics with a tighter weave to give you more privacy. Many of our heavier fabrics can be used for both curtains and upholstery. Get in touch with us or order free samples to get a better feel for our fabrics.
How do you clean linen curtains?
We recommend you dry clean our linen curtains to avoid shrinkage. A washing machine cycle will shrink most of our fabrics (this is also true of our linings, even if you have one of our pre-washed curtains). If you are unable to dry clean them, then gently hand wash them in a clean sink or basin. While linen has a high abrasion resistance and tensile strength, it’s best to treat it with care to ensure it lasts for a long time. Never mix linen with dark-coloured fabrics. We recommend you keep an eye out for care instructions, as they will vary from product to product.
