BEDLINEN FROM HEAVEN
A well-dressed bed is essential for a good night’s sleep so, as you’d imagine when it comes to bed linens we’re a little obsessed. Top of the pops for us is natural linen bedding. Here are four reasons why we love it
1. Cooler nights:
Made from fibers of the flax plant, linen offers natural breathability and moisture-wicking properties, making it ideal for keeping you cool and comfortable on warmer nights or of hot flushes hit.
2. Linen is surprisingly durable
While the fabric has an initially crisp feel, it will gradually soften with subsequent washes and holds up very well with minimal pilling. Unlike other bedding materials, linen is also hypoallergenic and resistant to dirt. Just follow the care guidelines (wash warm not scalding and air dry don’t tumble dry) and it’ll last years
3 Linens ticks the eco-friendly box too
Flax, the raw ingredient, requires very little irrigation and linen processing expends a low amount of energy
4. No need to iron
Crumpled is chic so put away that iron and celebrate the crinkles. And anyway, life is to short to iron your bedding
