Is linen better than cotton?
When it comes to choosing the right bed sheets for you, it really depends on personal preference, however linen boasts several great qualities to help you sleep soundly. Both cotton and linen fabrics are breathable, but despite being thicker and heavier than cotton, linen sheets are more breathable due to their lengthy and wide fibres. Linen’s luxurious look and feel will add elegance to effortlessly elevate the look of your home, though if you prefer a lighter feel, you may want to consider one of our cotton or bamboo ranges.
What are the pros and cons of linen sheets?
A linen sheet set will provide you with a wealth of benefits when it comes to cosy and safe sleeping. It's an excellent temperature regulator and has a breathable, lightweight quality that makes it a favourite among many. However, for some, linen's rougher texture and tendency to wrinkle might make a different fabric preferable.
How long do linen sheets last?
With proper care, a premium quality linen sheet set has been known to last up to five years comfortably due to its excellent durability.
How often should you wash linen sheets?
You may think that linen bed sheets don't need regular washing like your regular cotton ones. But you should be doing regular washing for your linen sheets, even if not weekly, at least every week. It is advisable to wash your linen bed sheets before first use as well as after every use.
Can you put linen sheets in the dryer?
Depending on the quality make and any product finishes, putting your linen sheet set in the dryer on warm is fine, and with dryer balls, it can help reduce wrinkles. Always refer to the respective brand's cleaning guidelines for the best results. If you prefer to line dry or the care instructions recommend it, ensure you do so out of direct sunlight, which can cause linen to fade, and in some cases, shrink.
