The Benefits of Pure Linen Bedding

The Benefits of Pure Linen Bedding

What is Linen Fabric?

The flax plant is used to make linen cloth, which is an environmentally benign, biodegradable, and renewable resource. Flax plants are also used to manufacture flaxseed oil and paper, in addition to cloth. Linen fabric is created by spinning flax plant fibres into yarn and then weaving them into cloth. The provenance of the flax is a good determinant of linen quality. Western Europe and Ukraine produce the best flax.

There are several advantages to using linen bedding

For good reason, linen cloth has been widely used for ages – it is stronger, more absorbent, and longer lasting than other materials (linen is 30 percent stronger than cotton, for example). Linen is a midweight fabric that is naturally glossy and lint-free, and it improves with each wash. Linen is hypoallergenic, antibacterial, and one of the most breathable materials on the market. Sleeping on natural linen sheets is also healthy for your skin because of these properties – especially for individuals with sensitive skin.

Pure linen is ideal for year-round use because it is both moisture-wicking and temperature-regulating. Linen bedding keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter, providing a comfortable sleeping environment. Furthermore, according to a study conducted by the University of Milan, sleeping on linen sheets causes you to fall asleep faster, sleep deeper, and wake up in a better mood, making them one of the best sheets available today!

Choosing Linen Bedding

Look for 100 percent linen sheets, pillowcases, pillows and duvet coverings. Check the place of origin as well. The greatest quality luxury linen textiles are produced in Europe, such as Italy and Portugal.

Caring for Linen Bedding

Always read the care directions on your bedding before washing it, but linen sheets may usually be machine washed on a warm soft cycle. Over time, linen becomes softer and softer, never pilling, stretching, or losing its shape. If desired, use an iron on a low warm setting because linen wrinkles rapidly.
