Garment CareTo enjoy your new Lee Valley garment and prolong your experience of its quality and comfort, please follow our care guidelines below.
- All our garments are made from natural fibers like cotton, linen and wool.
- Cotton, cotton flannel and linen garments can be machine washed and ironed, but keep them out of the tumble dryer.
- Woolens should be hand-washed in warm water and laid out flat to dry.

Lee Valley Sizing
We consider our sizing to be generous in fit.
Note: Our Sleepwear is Unisex, therefore we recommend that ladies would size down. Generally a Size Small Nightshirt would fit a 10/12 UK size more than comfortably (6/8 US).
How to measure:
We find it best to measure a garment that you have at home which fits best.
a. Chest: Chest Measurement given is a half measurement, best practice is to lay a similar garment on the floor measure 2cm below the armhole and measure straight across to other side.
b. Center Back Length: Take your measurement from the center back of the neck (not including the collar) measure straight down to the hem of the shirt/nightshirt.
c. Sleeve Length: With sleeve lying out flat, take measurement from outer edge shoulder seam straight down including the cuff.
d. Waist: Lay your trousers flat on the floor or table and measure straight across the waist seam to seam. Note that measurement given is half measurement.
e. Outside leg: take measurement from top of the waist band straight down on the outer edge to the hem.
f. Inside Leg: Measure a similar style pants that fits you well by laying it flat and measure inside the leg seam from crotch to hem. Or measure the inside of the leg from crotch to the ankle.
