As well as being exceptionally soft, linen's natural long fibres help to regulate your body temperature as you sleep with its breathability and high moisture absorbency. It's also perfectly weighted which helps to ease you into the perfect deep sleep.
Linen is perfect for every season - fresh in the summer and cool in the winter. Another great quality of linen bedding is that it gets even softer and softer with wear.
The production of linen is very sustainable as every part of the flax plant can be used. It is a rotation crop, farmed naturally in small batches.
There is a common misconception that linen is a tricky fabric to care for but it is actually very durable and low maintenance.
Linen is a natural fabric that becomes softer and more absorbent with use (which is why we are such big fans) and is a breeze to care for. Here are a few pointers to help you make your linens last.
Linen can be machine washed as well as hand washed. Dry cleaning is not recommended, however.
-Wash on a warm gentle cycle. A 110F degree wash is perfect for removing dirt and natural body oils, dissolving washing detergent as well as being eco-friendly. I can also be washed on a hot wash.
-An extra rinse will ensure that any powder residue is removed as this can deteriorate linen fibres affecting their longevity.
-Use a mild detergent and skip the fabric softener. Linen softens dramatically over time so no need to add softener.
Air drying is best but can leave your bedding feeling a touch stiff at first. To remedy this, we recommend a combination of line and machine drying. Stick your bedding in to the dryer for 10 minutes to soften, then hang on the line or spread flat whilst still damp to allow gravity to get rid of wrinkles.
Please note that linen dries faster than cotton so adjust tumble drier times accordingly to avoid scorching.
At Piglet we love the effortless, elegant texture of natural linen, however, they can be ironed whilst damp with a medium-hot iron, or steamed.
We strongly advise trying to tackle any stains as soon as possible by sprinkling with baking soda and adding a few drops of vinegar then blotting (not scrubbing). Bleaching is not recommended as it breaks down fabric fibres.
We recommend storing your bedding in your Piglet linen bag when not in use to prolong longevity.
