“The University of Cambridge determined that linen is the most appropriate material for sheeting for physical as well as psychological well-being.”
The Benefits Of Linen Bedding
There are many types of quality bedding available to improve the quality of your sleep experience but only Linen truly meets all the criteria for comfort, longevity, and sleep health benefits. Quality linen bedding effectively regulates body temperature by absorbing moisture more effectively than cotton, silk, and modal. Quality long fiber linen will feel soft,light, and airy.
Linen Bedding Quality
The quality factor with linen can be just as significant as other textiles like cotton, modal, and silk. There are generally two types of fibres resulting from a single crop. Two thirds will consist of long line fibres while the remainder are tow fibres. Line fibers are between 24″ to 36″ in length while tow fibres can be anywhere from 4″ to 6″ in length. Higher quality linen bedding will always be significantly higher in price due to the demand, the difficulty to handle and mill the fibres into a finished fabric. Although tow fibers have been know to be made into bedding the finished product is neither soft or as strong as its counterpart line linen. Cheaper linen sheets will even feel coarse after laundering when in theory quality linen bedding should only get softer the more you wash it.
