Wondering what the hype is about linen? heres a few quick notes to get an idea!
These are the top four reasons to choose linen sheets:
- Linen is breathable. Linen is a highly breathable material that does a great job regulating your body temperature. Linen will keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
- Linen is durable. The threads of linen are usually longer and thicker than other fabrics, including those of cotton, making the material highly durable. Good-quality linen sheets can last you for decades.
- Linen has a lived-in look and feel. The texture of linen is slightly coarser than that of cotton, giving it that lived-in look and feel that many linen fans love. Even better, linen sheets get softer with every wash, while maintaining their relaxed look. Many high-quality linen sheets come pre-washed so they will feel soft right from the get-go.
- Linen is antimicrobial and hypoallergenic. Linen has unique filtering properties that greatly reduce the number of allergens and germs that can find their way into your bedsheets. It's also a naturally anti-static fabric, which means it repels dirt and stays cleaner longer than other materials (a huge bonus if you tend to put off washing your sheets!)
