Linen fabric has been widely used for centuries, and there’s good reason for it! Linen is stronger, more absorbent and more durable than other fabrics. It’s also naturally lustrous and lint-free, looking and feeling better after every wash. Since pure linen is moisture wicking and temperature regulating, it’s great for year round use, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. If those reasons weren’t enough to make linen the perfect sheeting fabric, it’s also an environmentally friendly, biodegradable, renewable resource. That’s because linen is made from the flax plant, which is used in other products, such as flax seed oil and even linoleum.

It’s officially summer, so it’s time to swap your heavier bedding for warm weather essentials that will help you sleep comfortably cool. The first thing you’ll want to do is switch your thick comforter for a summer or blanket weight comforter. If you’re a very warm sleeper or live in a particularly hot climate, a coverlet will provide just the right amount of warmth, while also adding texture and style! To keep your out-of-season bedding free of dust and dirt, try our breathable Cotton Canvas Zippered Storage Bag- perfect for storing your down comforters!
Light, breathable sheeting makes sleeping on hot summer nights more comfortable too. Linen and seersucker are summer classics for good reason! Linen is naturally moisture wicking to keep you cool and seersucker’s puckered stripes increase air circulation.
Now that your bed is ready for the summer heat, make sure you have weather appropriate sleepwear. Fabrics that are moisture wicking or are sheer and lightweight like cotton lawn, make the perfect summer pajamas!
