    What is linen fabric made from?

    Linen is one of those fabrics that is timeless. It has been used for centuries because of its amazing properties making it a valued commodity all around the world. Linen cloth has been used for thousands of years, dating back to 8000 BC.

    Linen is made from flax fibers, giving it strength and durability as well as texture, breathability, and a beautiful drape.  It dries quicker than cotton and looks and feels fabulous against your skin, making it an excellent choice for your bed linen.

    It takes time to turn the fibers into the fabric we know, but well worth it and is used in many types of home linens.

    Linen comes in a variety of weights and thread counts which all have their own special allure and uses.  In the past, the tighter thread count was used in clothing and bedsheets. But now we have open-weave fabrics for both these uses which adds to today’s style and elegance.

    I personally like my duvet cover to have a flange around the edge which gives it a more elegant finish, and that’s why we have designed ours with that feature. For my bed, I have chosen, and totally in love with French Linen Sheets, duvet cover and pillowcases.
