The cold weather is coming to a close, which means we can toss our double-layered comforters and flannel sheets into the back of the closet until November. It’s time to break out the spring linen, baby.
Don’t have linen sheets? Well, it’s time to reconsider. Snowe just released a whole new line of linen sheets made from Italian linen and Belgian flax which has been washed in their proprietary “air wash” to pre-soften the sheets. Parachute makes linen sheets crafted in Portugal that will wear down as you wash them. Even fast-fashion brands like H&M make linen sheets.
You change over your wardrobe when the season changes and that same consideration should be put into your bedding. You spend basically as much time in your sheets as you do in your clothing and they should accurately reflect the temperature outside. Giving your bed a spring makeover is like wearing a short-sleeve shirt outside for the first time; it changes how you feel about the fabric. Now you won’t have to worry about getting too hot with your overly bulky flannel or microfiber sheets made for colder weather.
Linen Sheets to Invest In:
Snowe’s newest launch gives you the sturdiness of linen without the break-in period. Their “air wash” technology means these sheets are “blasted, tumbled, and whipped with bursts of air.” This set is meant to last you decades (instead of seasons).
Primary Goods only makes two kinds of sheets: linen and percale. The innovation, however, is in the design. Add these stonewashed French linen sheets to your bed and never have to fuss with a top sheet again because the duvet has snaps that connect the top sheet directly to it.
These Belgian and French flax linen sheets from Brooklinen are stonewashed, individually pre-washed and garment-dyed. Plus, they are OEKO-TEX certified chemical-free, meaning they were “ tested for harmful substances and certified to meet the strict global safety criteria.”
Parachute’s linen sheets are the classic linen sheets that you know. They’re sturdy and durable and will be a soft, luxurious place to sleep after only a couple of washes.
