We often hear that linen bedding is difficult to take care of, and we are pretty happy to say that it isn’t true. Washing linen is just as easy as any other fabric while drying it takes significantly less time than cotton. And in case you were worried about linen’s tendency to wrinkle, we would encourage to embrace this naturally relaxed look and forget about ironing your bed set at all.
Another common misconception about linen is its softness, or, rather, lack of it. However, it is nowhere near the truth. First of all, we stone-wash our linen to make it softer and smoother. That way, you already receive a gentle item upon purchase. Moreover, it gets even softer over time – linen fibers break during washing, so the longer you use it, the finer it gets.
We like to say that linen has a built-in climate control function, and it really is true. It sustains the temperature balance perfectly while allowing your skin to breathe. Therefore, you won’t feel hot in it during the summer, and it will keep you warm in winter.
It all depends on your perception. But when it comes to bedding, cheaper isn’t always better. Quality pieces made of high-quality linen fabrics can be slightly pricier, but it usually pays off as, with proper care, they last a long time.
Would love to get some linen bedding, but can't find the perfect fit? Since we produce our products ourselves, we are happy to make size adjustments according to your needs.
