Linen is a highly breathable fabric that can absorb up to 20 per cent of its weight in moisture. Beyond its look and feel, Linen is temperature regulating, anti-static, anti-bacteria and acts as a natural insulator.
Linen sheets have been the top choice while outfitting a bed. With its various thread counts and woven structure, these sheets are smooth and comfortable without breaking the bank.
The threads of linen sheets are generally thicker and longer than cotton and can outlast their counterparts due to its durable nature. With a stiff-to-smooth and consistent feel, this sheets can also have slight massaging properties due to microscopic breaks in the material. The softness of linen sheets can also intensify over time after multiple times of washing without losing their durability.
Linen allows for increased airflow. It is the most breathable bedding option. Definitely the best choice for someone who tends to overheat at night but still prefers the feeling of sleeping under the covers.
