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!

When you use our Oeko-Tex® Certified products, you can rest easy knowing that the fabrics are free from harmful chemicals and safe for your entire family.

It’s time for spring cleaning again! If cleaning your entire house seems like a daunting task, reduce stress by breaking it up and focusing on one area at a time. We’ll help you get started with some quick tips to organize an important part of your home – your linen closet. An organized linen closet will make finding the right sheets and towels a breeze, saving time and effort throughout the year.
1. Start by going through your closet and determine what you should keep, donate, re-purpose or toss. If you’ve been keeping random, mismatched pieces that you “might use” one day and haven’t touched in years, it’s time to part ways. After sorting through your stockpile, wipe down your shelves and let them dry before putting things back.
2. Label your shelves or storage bins by either the size or room that each towel or sheet set belongs to. By having designated sections within your closet, finding exactly what you’re looking for will be a snap.
3. Keep your sheet sets even more organized and easily accessible by folding the sheets, shams, pillowcases and duvet cover into one of the coordinating pillowcases. That way, you won’t have to rummage through everything, causing a mess in the process. Keeping your most-used items at eye level or below will also help prevent neatly folded stacks from toppling over as you take out specific items. Seasonal linens should be stored on the top shelves in dust bags.
If you’ve got seasonal allergies, then you know that in addition to more sun and warmer weather, springtime is also the season of runny noses, sneezing and itchy/watery eyes. Allergy season can also lead to restless nights since symptoms don’t stop at bedtime, but with a few changes and some planning, that doesn’t have to be the case!
1. Use a HEPA filter in your bedroom to reduce the amount of pollen, dust and pet dander in the air. HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters work by trapping debris in a fine mesh filter as air passes through. And speaking of pet dander, it’s best to keep your furry friends out of the bedroom, especially during allergy season. That’s because their fur is a magnet for dirt and pollen.
2. Washing your sheets more often can also help reduce nighttime allergy suffering. If doing laundry at least once a week doesn’t work into your schedule, keep an extra set of sheets on hand. Showering before bed, instead of in the morning, will also help keep symptoms at bay and prevent the pollen collected on your skin and hair from transferring onto your sheets. For even more protection, use anti-allergy bedding.
3. Know when you need a new mattress or pillow. Unlike sheets and bedding, pillows and mattresses are much more cumbersome to clean, but still collect dust, pollen and even mold! Mattresses should be replaced every 7-10 years while pillows should be replaced more frequently.
