Pros of Linen Sheets :

To start with, linen bedding is great for your health. It warms up in the winter and cools in the summer, so it relieves the skin of excessive heat when body temperature rises and warms you up if you are cold. Resting on linen sheets will ease the pain and discomfort caused by sunburns, and daily contact with linen can reduce sensitivity to cold, flu and other diseases. Recent studies have also demonstrated that female fertility is increased with the use of pure linen sheets. Linen is hypoallergenic – it does not cause allergies, which means that people with allergies or sensitive skin will not need to worry about having an allergic reaction when touching the fabric or sleeping on linen sheets. Organic linen fabric is made from materials that are not exposed to harsh chemicals or pesticides, so the material is considered healthy. Linen has a light massaging effect because of the tiny breaks throughout the fabric. These breaks also stimulate our skin, which stimulates blood flow and promotes relaxation. Linen has been shown to promote deep and relaxing sleep. A recent study found that you fall asleep faster, sleep deeper, and wake up in a better mood after sleeping on linen sheeting.

Organic linen fabric sheets also absorb moisture more efficiently than synthetic materials. It is not only ecologically friendly, it is also antistatic – it remains cleaner for longer periods of time, doesn’t cling to the body, and isn’t easily wrinkled. Linen is 30% stronger than cotton. It is a fabric that becomes softer after every wash.
