So you’re hooked on the look of linen, but have no idea what it’s like to actually sleep on it. Chances are you dedicated time to researching your perfect mattress, so why wouldn’t you do the same for that smooth layer that lies between you? Whether you’re a linen virgin (or you’ve slept around a bit) here’s five reasons why our linen will change the way you rest.
1. It’s Durable
Linen is for life. Because of its naturally thick strands, linen is considered the world’s strongest fiber (even 30% stronger than cotton!). If properly cared for, our sheets can last for a decade or more. They’re basically like your favorite jeans — only stronger.
2. It’s Always The Right Temperature
Linen fibers have a hollow core which makes them great natural insulators. They easily react to the temperature of your body and your environment to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter which means we can pretty much guarantee you’ll reach fairytale levels of “just right”.
3. It’s (Actually) Soft
It’s a common myth that linen isn’t very soft, and we’re here to help prove that wrong. Our linen has been carefully stonewashed to create an irresistible lived-in feel. And the best part is — our technicians have mastered their techniques to give you the softness of a hundred washes without any of the wear. And yeah, it really does get even softer over time (but don’t we all?).
4. It’s Good For Your Skin
Linen is naturally hypo-allergenic, which means it’s always going to be kind to your body. It’s unique ventilating and bacteria-resistant properties are great for people who have sensitive skin and it’s natural pH balance can keep you feeling smooth.
5. It’s Environmentally Conscious
Linen is made from the flax, a plant with a very small environmental footprint. Flax needs only a little water and energy to grow, and in the making of linen, nothing goes to waste. The longevity of linen is an added bonus and when it’s eventually time to replace your sheets, our linen is fully biodegradable.
