Since we spend a third of our lives sleeping, getting the bed right is essential to ensure sleep quality and well-being. There is nothing like a gorgeous linen bed set for comfortable, pleasant nights. Compared with synthetic fibres (such as polyester), linen is anti-fungal, biodegradable and easily recycled. When you find out about its advantages in terms of fabric and colour you won't be able to resist its fine, timeless texture!
Benefits of linen
If you are in search of high-quality, soft material for your bedding (duvet cover, bedspread, sheets, pillowcases) for a good night’s sleep, switch to linen, a soft fabric made from natural fibres and an elegantly woven structure. Breathable yet insulating, slightly heavy but hanging nicely, it is a sure bet. Linen bedding is suitable for all types of bedrooms. Time, wear and repeated washing soften linen.
No more damp sheets – linen has unique filtering properties and can absorb as much as 20% of its weight in moisture without leaving a trace, thus significantly reducing allergens and bacteria growth, as well as potential skin and breathing disorders. Plus linen bedding will keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Models and colours
Linen bed sets are available in various shades, 1 or 2-coloured, with sleek lines or frills, leaving you spoilt for choice to find the style and tone that will best suit your bedroom. For an understated look, choose traditional colours such as black, grey, white or beige. If you want to add a touch of creativity, go for more unusual shades – indigo blue, olive green or mustard yellow, the new must-have colour, with an exotic, warm feel.
A mustard duvet cover will give your house a charming, laid-back atmosphere and will blend in nicely with contemporary or more classic furniture. For maximum comfort, choose a 100% cotton quilted bedspread that will keep you cool at night and feel soft on the skin.
The size of your fitted sheet is important and must be taken into account for a perfect hang. Make sure to carefully measure your mattress if you don’t know its size. When washing linen bedding it is recommended to use a mild natural detergent and machine wash up to 60°C. To preserve the uncommon style of pleated linen, avoid ironing your sheets and use a hair dryer on a low setting instead, to preserve the useful life of flax fibres. Linen bedding gets softer with every wash, is easy to care for and does not shrink. To sum up, linen is a healthy option, pleasant to the touch and sensitive skin-friendly. So go ahead and enjoy the gentle touch of linen for a good night’s sleep, keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter.
