Wet vintage linen can be delicate. When the fibers are wet, they become fragile. Tears or separations are commonplace. So, how can you dry vintage linens safely? The best way is to use a large towel. Lay the wet linen on a large towel and roll it up, squeezing the water out of the linen as you go. Repeat as many times as you need until the linen is fairly dry, then drape the linen piece over a drying rack. Make sure you support the linen across the entire drying rack and not just one rung, as one rung will stretch that area touching the rung. Let it dry – then fold it. Try it – you’ll never dry fine linens on the line or (shudder) throw them into a dryer again.
