Linen is especially wonderful for hot summer days because it is among the most breathable of fabrics.
Flax, the totally natural raw material from which linen is made, is a hollow fibre with breathable properties. It is perfect for helping regulate body temperature.
Linen thread retains only a small amount of heat. Since it encloses only a little air between its fibres, it feels cool to the touch.
Plus, linen absorbs moisture well and can store some of it inside its fibres. It can absorb up to 20% of its own weight in water without the fabric feeling moist. Most of the moisture is then released relatively quickly.
This makes linen perfect for anyone who sweats in their sleep during summer. The fabric absorbs the sweat, leaving your sheets feeling cool and dry.
Linen bedding also feels soft and cuddly and it actually gets softer with every wash.
Last but not least, linen bed sheets are wonderful for people with allergies. Learn more
