Features and Facts
Not Too Hot, Not Too Cold
Linen is something of a temperature-regulating superfibre, and a brilliant bedlinen choice if you struggle with hot flushes or overheating at night. Its hollowfibre structure is stronger and more absorbent than cotton and helps to regulate your body temperature as you sleep. You'll keep your cool during sultry summer nights and feel comforted and warm during colder months.
Ooh La La
Made with pure French Linen, woven with flax grown in Normandy. The long staple lengths of this quality linen create an incredibly soft, textured fabric that just gets better with age. And here's a fact for free - the casual rumples and crumples you see in linen are due to its low elasticity. Creases are linen's way of showing you it's doing it's job!
A Textural Treat
This bedlinen is made with yarns that are ring-spun. Not sure what that has to do with a super night's sleep? Well, it makes the fabric stronger and much smoother. The result is a long-lasting and super-smooth bedlinen with a beautiful texture that you'll be able to enjoy for years to come. This bedlinen is also pre-washed and pre-shrunk to minimise shrinkage; what you see it what you get!
We rigorously test our bed linen to make sure it has what it takes to supercharge your sleep; we pay particular attention to colour fastness, longevity and washability.

The Look & Feel
Linen feels indulgently textured and soft against your skin with a deliciously rich drape. It feels beautifully cooling when you first lie between your sheets but also helps you feel extra cosy in the winter.
Linen's rumpled charm is effortlessly appealing. The plain weave fabric is speckled with naturally occuring slubs in the fabric showing the beauty of this natural fibre; it's just the thing for a chilled-out bedroom.
We've kept things simple with this bedlinen range so you can style it up or leave it as it is. The duvet cover and Oxford pillowcases have 5cm borders. The fitted sheets are elasticated around the full edge of the sheet for a perfect fit.
The duvet covers are fastened with tie closures so you don't need to worry about ironing around fiddly buttons. Pillow cases have an envelope closure for a neat finish.
Keep your bed clean and fresh by changing and washing your bedlinen regularly. Once a week should do the trick. You can wash this bedlinen at 40°C, although we'd recommend you wash it at 30°C for a greener way to stay clean.
Do your bit for our planet and dry your bedlinen by hanging it to dry out of direct sunlight. It will dry best on an outside washing line. If time or space is tight, this bedlinen can also be tumble-dried. You'll have fewer creases to deal with if you remove your bedlinen from the drier while slightly damp and then hang it to air dry.
Always use the best detergent for the product you are washing. If you're washing white bedlinen we'd recommend powdered detergents. If you're washing coloured bedlinen, we'd recommend you use a washing gel/liquid or a detergent suitable for coloured fabrics.
Never, ever use bleach on your beautiful linen bedding. Bleach breaks linen fibres and will shorten the life of your bedlinen. Avoid detergents and stain removers containing optical brighteners - they create an optical illusion that changes the appearance of the colour. It's not just detergents that can affect your bedlinen; some creams and facewashes contain chemicals that will bleach your bedlinen, such as benzoyl peroxide. Suncream and bronzers can also stain your bedsheets; having a shower before bed to remove skin products will help your bedlinen stay looking good for longer.
