Not Just For Summer


Bed sheet sets

There’s no doubt that linen is a great fabric choice for summertime: light, breezy linen curtains and billowy linen resort wear are common summer sights. The popularity of linen makes perfect sense, too. Since linen can absorb up to 20% of its own weight in moisture and still stay dry to the touch, it’s a fabric that keeps us feeling fresh and cool in the warmer months. But many people don’t realize that linen bed sheets are perfect for year-round use.
While it keeps us cooler in hot temperatures, linen is unique in that it also helps keep us warm when the weather turns chilly. Because it helps regulates temperature, linen flat sheets are an ideal choice for any climate. If you tend to get too warm while sleeping, linen sheets help cool you down; if your teeth are chattering, linen bed sheets will warm you up. Linen is a breathable fabric that absorbs moisture, which allows you to awake feeling refreshed.
Linen sheets are also anti-bacterial and non-allergenic, which makes them an excellent choice for back-to-school season. Because these sheets can suppress bacteria and will not cause allergies, you can be secure in the knowledge that your choice in flat sheets are not only comfortable, but are also beneficial for your overall well-being. Whether you have young children, have skin sensitivities, or work in an illness-prone environment, pure linen sheets can help keep your family healthy.
With the stress of school, work, and normal daily life, one of the other benefits of linen sheets is that they’ve actually been shown to help you sleep better. Linen flat sheets and sheet sets have a massaging effect (due to the microscopic breaks in the fabric), become softer with every wash, and the feel of the fabric helps stimulate blood flow and relaxation. Studies have shown that linen bed sheets can help you fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly — a must in today’s world of hustle and bustle.
Finally, the beauty of fall reminds us to protect our planet, and you can start with your choice of bedding. Linen sheets are made from flax, one of the strongest natural fibers (it’s twice or even three times as strong as cotton!). When flax is used to make linen, the leftovers are all used in other ways; for instance, the seeds are made into linseed oil, which is used in linoleum floor tiles and in paint. Flax is also a renewable resource, and linen is fully bio-degradable. On the whole, linen bedding is an incredibly eco-friendly choice. We can actually help our environment in our sleep!
It’s clear that making the switch to linen sheets benefits more than just the look of your bed. It’s a choice that can help improve the quality of your sleep and health, and can preserve our valuable resources. You’ll “fall” right into bed this autumn with your new linen bed sheets!
