Saphyr - FAQs

Saphyr FAQ header


 1. What inspired the name Saphyr?

Saphyr is the common name for the flower that blooms on the flax plant from which linen fibers are extracted. The flowers grow in clusters with five petals that open at dawn and close in the same day. A field of flax in bloom looks like a reflection of the sky; the perfect name for a beautiful product!

3. How do I care for my linen?

The best way to care for your linen is to machine wash warm on the gentle cycle with like colors. Never use bleach! A non-chlorine bleach can be used if necessary. Tumble-dry low and remove promptly. The inherent wrinkles are a natural asset to the relaxed beauty of linen, but you may use a warm iron if preferred.

After the first or second wash, if you notice the raw edge start to "unravel" slightly, don't worry! This is completely natural. Just cut off any threads, and as your sheets are used and laundered a couple times the edge of the fibers will expand a bit to keep threads in place.
