There is nothing more luxurious than butter-soft French Flax Linen Sheets..
French Flax Linen Sheets are the ultimate luxury bed sheets. They are light, snuggly, they get softer with every wash and they last and last and last. Sure, they are a heady financial investment – but if you are looking for quality over price – you really can’t go wrong!
What is French Flax Linen?
French Flax Linen sheets are made from the very best flax plants which are three times stronger than cotton. Specialized flax plants like those grown in France have been bred over generations to produce the very best textiles in the world.
In fact, French Flax Linen was worn by the likes of the Romans (yes their toga’s were made of French Flax Linen) and even King Tut was buried wearing a Flax Linen Tunic.
Why is French Flax Linen So Expensive?
Cultivation of the flax plant is incredibly tedious and time-consuming. The Flax is very difficult to spin and there are many very labor-intensive steps in production. This cost has to be passed on to the consumer.
Why are French Flax Linen Sheets So Good?
French Flax Linen is highly absorbent (great for us menopausal women who sweat a lot). It is temperature regulating, keeping you cool in the heat and warm in the cold. And it washes beautifully – getting softer with each wash. French Flax Linen is also very hypo-allergenic, so if you suffer from eczema or any other skin disorders, it is a perfect choice.
A good set of French Flax Linen Sheets will last so long, your kids can inherit them!
And another fantastic feature of French Flax Linen is that it is environmentally friendly. The harvesting process leaves no environmental footprint and it is totally biodegradable.
