Whilst living in France, I discovered the only bed linen for a sumptuous night's sleep was 100% linen. It keeps you warm in the winter, cool in the summer and allows the body to breathe. Once you have tried it you will never go back to cotton!

In the past it was normal practice for housewives to regularly boil their linen bedding! Fortunately we now use machines and a hot wash helps to kill germs, remove dirt from between threads and thoroughly cleans the fabric. Linen becomes softer after multiple washes and can withstand many washing cycles as linen fibres are stronger than other commonly used fibres, such as cotton.
Tumble drying is damaging for all natural fibres, including linen. So, where possible dry on a clothes line with the added bonus of the sun making white linens whiter. In our busy modern lives however, line drying is not always possible and we have to resort to using the dryer, so take precautions by using a low heat or delicate setting. Linen bedding should not be over dried and should be removed from the dryer when still damp if pressing is required.
Linen is a beautiful natural fabric but with natural fibres comes creases. Ironing is recommended when the fabric is still damp. Use a hot iron or "linen" setting when pressing.
