What's so special about Linen...?
At Sheets on the Line, we pride ourselves on our lovely Pure Linen ranges that feature bed sheet sets, quilt covers and cushions. But why is Pure Linen considered to be the most luxurious of all the bed linen fabrics?
Sheets on the Line’s Pure Linen is made from only the finest of Belgian flax fibers. Generations before us have known and appreciated the qualities of linen, which is one of the world’s oldest and most prized fabrics.
The Belgian flax thread is then imported to our weaving partners in India and lovingly made into the fine ‘European grade’ linen that our customers so love.
Linen possesses unique filtering, moisture absorbance and evaporative qualities, making it bacteria resistant and the perfect non-allergenic bed linen. Which is why it is recommended for people with skin issues and those who suffer from overheating. Linen is a hollow fibre, much like wool and it is a breathable fabric, keeping you warm in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Pure linen can absorb as much as 20% of its weight in moisture before feeling wet, always having a pleasant, fresh, cool feeling when against your skin or being slept on. Pure Linen is in fact anti-static and can even help soften and preserve the skin due to its natural pH balance and actually had properties that help to repel dirt and stains.Pure linen bed linen is twice as durable as cotton bed linen and it is even environmentally friendly. Linen is a renewable resource and the flax crop requires no irrigation to grow and flourish.
Sheets on the Line’s Pure Linen bed sheets and quilt covers are vintage washed and have a delightful softness to them, becoming even more so with each use and washing cycle. But above all the joy of Sheets on the Line’s Pure Linen is the sheer comfort and feel against your skin.
