Why Linen?

Posted on July 10, 2013 by claire ongley | 0 comments

I love pure linen bed sheets, and that's why I stock beautiful washed linen sheets from Lithuania on the website. Many people have asked me, what is the big deal about linen sheets? So, I thought I would post a short blog explaining the magic of linen sheets!

Warm in the winter, cool in the summer.

Linen has temperature regulating properties. The linen fibre is hollow at its core which means it provides excellent insulation. Although linen sheets are thick, they are lovely and cool in the summer, yet cosy and warm in the winter. In hot weather, linen actually absorbs heat and moisture which gives you a better night's sleep.

Linen for life

Linen is a durable fabric, so although they may seem expensive, linen sheets are actually a wonderful investment and will last you for years to come. They even get softer and more comfy with age.

Washed linen vs Regular linen

The other question I get asked is, why washed linen? Well, you have to see and feel it to understand. The process of washing the linen makes it softer, and in my opinion, more beautiful. The more you wash the sheets, the softer and more beautiful they become. For linen bed sheets especially, I just adore the look and feel of washed linen.

Good for your health

Linen has antibacterial, anti-allergic and natural PH-balancing qualities!

Good for the environment

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, linen is also organic and environmentally sustainable (linen is made from flax which is a renewable resource).

Linen vs Cotton

Linen doesn't lint like cotton does, and it is even said that it gets whiter with age, unlike cotton and other fabrics which tend to yellow with age.

There you have it. The magic of linen bed sheets is undeniable!
