How to Care for Your Cotton or Linen Brahms Mount Blanket

Congratulations! You're the proud new owner of a Brahms Mount blanket. Whether cotton or linen or a blend of both, you'll love how easy it is to care for your new throw.

Cotton Blankets and Throws

Washing

  • A front loading machine is ideal to give plenty of room for circulation.
  • Wash on a short, gentle cycle on low heat, with as much water as possible to allow for movement.
  • Avoid harsh detergents. Use a liquid detergent without bleach or brighteners. Always pre-dilute your detergent.

Drying

  • Careful drying is very important.
  • Tumble dry on delicate setting, medium to high heat.
  • Tumbling helps keep a soft drape. It's best not to line dry.
  • It's better to remove the blanket slightly damp from the dryer; that way, you'll avoid baking and breaking the fibers.

Linen Blankets and Throws

Washing

  • A front loading machine is ideal to give plenty of room for circulation.
  • Wash on a short, gentle cycle on low heat, with as much water as possible to allow for movement.
  • Avoid harsh detergents. Use a liquid detergent without bleach or brighteners. Always pre-dilute your detergent.

Drying

  • Careful drying is very important.
  • Tumble dry on delicate setting. With linen, use low or no heat; with linen/cotton, use medium heat.
  • Linen will become brittle if it's dried at a high temperature or for an extended period. Whenever the fabric rubs on itself in a "dry" condition, it will abrade and show fiber on the surface.
  • Tumbling helps keep a soft drape. You can line dry, but the fabric will initially be very stiff.
  • It's better to remove the blanket slightly damp from the dryer; that way, you'll avoid baking and breaking the fibers.
