It’s comfortable, ultra-soft and creates a Pinterest-worthy space (with no ironing required) but those aren’t the only reasons why we use 100% Flax Linen exclusively for our signature bedding sets.
It’s Quick Drying
Natural flax linen dries quickly which means that sweat won’t linger in your sheets — it’s anti-perspirant (you can thank its moisture-wicking qualities for that) and it also dries faster post washing.
Flax Linen bedding is known for it’s durability; especially compared to other manchesters. With its incredible tensile strength, linen thread is twice as durable as cotton or wool, and becomes 20 per cent stronger when wet meaning washing will not degrade your bedding. In fact, it’ll only make your bedding softer.

Fact: Winter is our favourite season (more time in bed, and all) but before you update your linen for colder days and longer sleep-ins, have you considered our Queen Special size? This option includes: ✨ Two Pillowcases ✨ A Queen Fitted Sheet ✨ And a King Duvet Cover (it's oversized on a Queen bed, and makes things a little cosier. Also, it's ideal if you share with a blanket thief.) Our Queen Special in Oatmeal is pictured here, and is exclusively available at Bed Threads now. 💫
We’ve all been there. Your bedding looks… okay, but not as good as it used to. Some of this is due to the fabric stretching, which damages the surface of the fabric, leaving it looking flat and lacklustre. Thanks to it’s natural elasticity, flax linen keeps its style and finish, and best of all, becomes better the more it’s used and loved.
Keeps You Cool… and Warm
Natural flax linen fibres are known for their heat conductivity, which means more of that body heat generated when you are sleeping is distributed to the surrounding air. This ability of flax to reduce body temperature guarantees a more restful sleep. That’s not where it ends, though. Thanks to its natural temperature-regulating qualities, flax linen also keeps you warm in the cool, acting as a natural insulator, adjusting with the temperature as your body does. It’s the ultimate trans-seasonal bedding solution, and once you enjoy it season through season, you’ll see why.
The flax plant requires less water and fewer pesticides than other manchester-creating crops in order to thrive. The entire plant is utilised, even the elements which do not feature in the production of linen; the seeds are pressed to make linseed oil, for example. Linen is a renewable resource and is both biodegradable and recyclable making it an earth-friendly choice.
