Linen Bed Linen
Linen fabric is excellent for people who overheat easily because it is extremely absorbent and actively heat-regulating. In addition, linen is a good choice for allergy suffers as it is naturally hypoallergenic, anti-static and mite resistant. While it has a slightly rougher feel than other fabrics, linen fabric comes with a host of benefits.
Silk Bed Linen
Silk feels delicate and fine, but it is actually the most robust fibre available because it does not need to be thread. The fabric is very low density – or lightweight – but has good insulating properties, making it suitable for fluctuating temperatures. It is also naturally anti-allergenic. While it requires high maintenance when washing, silk is extremely comfortable and displays a luxurious natural sheen.
Cotton Percale Bed Linen
‘Percale’ refers to the type of weave: plain and tightly woven for a medium density fabric, usually starting from 200 thread count. Bed linen made from this fabric is extremely soft, smooth, and easy to wash. Cotton percale is heavier than linen or silk so it is suited to those who prefer weightier bedclothes, but who still like a cooling effect.
Egyptian Cotton Bed Linen
Grown in the Egyptian Nile Valley, Egyptian cotton is special because of its long-staple fibres. Thanks to this, Egyptian cotton threads have less breaks and so are extremely smooth, supple and incredibly durable... perfect for those who love a little luxury. Egyptian cotton – like all pure cottons – is naturally non-allergenic, and will look and feel incredible after many washes.
