Christmas time is coming! Shops are getting ready for the season, putting on their best decorations and stacking goods in large amounts. Maybe not yet, but soon people will start looking for gifts and high streets and shopping malls will get crowded and tiresome. So why not get ahead by buying top quality gifts – linen towels, linen bedding including linen duvet covers – early from the comfort of your own home?
The gift of pure linen bathroom towels is something that will be cherished for a long time – every time the person uses their towels they are reminded of you and your kindness. Linen hand & guest towels will adorn a bathroom when guests are there and will speak of taste and preference for quality of the owner. For those who like preparing meals and who spend lots of time in kitchen, a set of stylish linen tea towels is also a good gift idea.
We talk and write about linen fabric and linen items made of it a lot. Let’s now take a look to the origins of this beloved fabric of mine! Ancestors of linen bed linen, linen tablecloths and linen clothes come from very early days of humanity.
Linen fiber together with wool fiber is one of the oldest used by humans. Linen fibers are produced from the stems of the flax plan. Linen was an important textile before cotton and other fibers as it is very versatile and can serve many purposes. The best thing about flax plant is that all its parts can be used for something – so no part of it is wasted. For quality linen fabric only best stems are used, but the left over parts –like linseeds, oil, straw, lower-quality stems – are turned into many products: lino, soap, healthy nutritious oil, paper, even cattle feed and lots more.
* Obvious as it sounds – read the care labels when preparing to launder your linen bed linen for the first time. It’s surprising how little of us actually do this! Care labels always provide the specific instructions for caring for your linen bedlinen based on the weaving type, thread count, colors and other things. Laundering instructions may appear to be the same as of other bed linen you have, but it takes only few seconds to make sure.
Let’s talk today about linen duvets (or linen duvet covers)! Why are they considered a luxurious bed linen to have? Why are they healthy?
Duvet covers are a usual piece of bed linen mainly in Europe. In the United States comforters are used with flat sheets between one and the sleeper. But a custom of encasing a comforter with a cover is getting popular in USA too. To keep down comforters clean and hygienic one must put a cover or them. Avoiding flat sheets makes bed making quick and easy too!
As duvet cover is used directly next to skin, it is very important, what fabric it is made of. And because a duvet is a large piece of bedding that is clearly visible and noticeable, the design of your duvet cover plays major role when creating an atmosphere in the bedroom.
Nowadays flat and fitted bed sheets are used for the same purpose – to protect the mattress and make smooth surface for lying. The owner of the bed linen has to decide if the bed sheet has to pull snugly over the mattress, so that it cannot be easily pulled off, or it has to fold easily and neatly when not in use – as these are the main differences of these bedding linen pieces.
But those seeking truly luxurious sleeping experience and enjoying a traditional way of using bed linen, have to know what flat and fitted sheets were originally used for (and are used, for that matter).
