price per single flat sheet

If your mattress is deeper than 12" (30 cm), you will need to go up a size. An 8" tuck is the minimum. For really deep mattresses, I have now introduced a seriously oversized sheet - 127" x 127".

My pure Belgian linen sheeting comes in two colors, Strong White and Smooth Natural, which harmonize perfectly with the original, heavier Orkney fabric, both Natural and White. I have it woven to my specification to be the quality and heft equivalent to brands costing twice as much. Don't compare this with even high-end chain store linen - this is better.

Sheeting is closely woven and smooth in texture, in contrast to the 'rough' of rustic Orkney which resembles traditional homespun.

The incomparable comfort and quality of cool, strong, smooth pure linen - either white or natural.
I make these sheets the old way: flat, and large enough to tuck around a mattress.  

I am incensed whenever I have to make a bed with a mean spirited, stingily proportioned fitted sheet – straining to get the last corner down, seeing the sides roll up again like window shades if the elastic isn’t hooked under the bottom.

Once on, the sides too often ride up to expose an unappetising inch or two of mattress or mattress protector.

Part of the problem is that mattresses seem to get deeper all the time: who wants to have to think of these things? 

Fitted sheets use far less fabric than a traditional flat sheet, and ‘sheet sets’ not only have a fitted bottom sheet, but the top sheet is usually short. Modern fitted sheets and short flat top sheets may seem like a convenience, but the impetus behind them was to save on fabric. This is a cost benefit for the manufacturer, as he is quite literally cutting corners.

The traditional way, usurped by this twentieth century penny-pinching, was to have flat sheets large enough to be securely tucked in all the way round.  Hospital corners provide a time-honored neat finish but if you don’t care, you don’t have to do them! 

However this skill is still very much a feather in the domestic cap, right up there with hollandaise sauce.
As you can see from the video (above) , not only is it faster with two people, it is almost fun. Try it with a dear one.  You will learn a lot about each other

Smooth White Linen sheets and pillowslips in Daniel Hale's house at St. Helena, CA.
Smooth Natural linen sheet complements the Orkney duvet cover
Natural flax is called 'grey' at the mill, but I would describe it as a silvery-taupe. It's the same color as Orkney, just the texture is much smoother and the fabric is less dense - but still more substantial than most linen sheeting. Don't compare it with even high-end retail chains - mine is better.

I commissioned the mill that weaves my Strong White linen to weave un-dyed, natural linen, double-width. Smooth Natural linen is exceptionally strong as it hasn't gone through a bleaching process, so it is more eco-friendly as well.

I am delighted with the way all the fabrics blend harmoniously with each other, and with my vintage linens. Each has a distinctive texture, and each brings its own strength and refinement to the mix.

There are practical advantages to the soft subtlety of natural - for areas of the country with iron in the water, for men who discolour the sheets in hot weather (I'm trying to be delicate here), or if your pets love your linens as much as you do. All linen wears clean, but natural is more forgiving day-to-day.

We live about 350 miles north of Minneapolis in north western Ontario. These are your Smooth White linen sheets drying on the clothes line. Today is above freezing and sunny so they will dry. I am in for a treat tonight when I make the bed with the scent of our fresh northern air. Thank you so much for your excellent product. I am a convert to pure linen. ~ Cathy

I bought the sheets in the hope that we'd "sleep cooler" in warm weather and that does seem to be the case. No more waking in the night to throw off the top sheet and light quilt. The bed just feels cooler. The size is fine - no problems at all with the corners or sides coming untucked on our standard queen mattress. Laundered to mostly dry in the dryer - dries fast, so be careful! Finished by laying it on the dining room table for a few minutes to let the wrinkles relax (the table is covered in one of those water resistant "French coated" wipe clean cloths). Wish I had waited a few weeks for the newer gentler white, but all in all, I'm very happy with the sheets. ~ Meridee W.

I thought cotton sheets were good. Then the hot weather hit. The linen sheet is a revelation: cool when it's hot; warm when, finally, the dawn air cools. Thank you. ~ Linda D.
Just received my sheet in natural! OMGosh! I am so, so happy, and my husband, who doesn't exactly comment on bedding, told me he felt cooler and more comfortable and asked where I got the sheet!
Love it, and can't wait to slowly get bedding for all of us, mom, dad, four kids, grandparents...you get the picture!
I grew up in Norway on ancient bedding and never found anything I loved here. This is a dream come true. Thank you for taking the time and interest in being an artist for all of us. It is individuals like yourself who change the world, one person at a time.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! ~ Nina and Bobby
Thank you for making such a great product. The quality and comfort is great! I will be ordering another set soon. These sheets and cases cannot be compared to Restoration Hardware linen. Far superior. Your product is as nice as any Italian linen.
From Tricia Rose's description of her ordeal in finding the perfect white linen sheet I suspect these are the sheets I have been looking for - for what? Twenty years? Longer?

The only ones I have even found that I like are Italian hotel sheets. Congratulations to Tricia and Rough Linen for figuring out one of the most gaping holes in contemporary retail bedding. I just ordered a set and am sending this link to all my friends. Wow!

Congratulations and best wishes. And THANK YOU! And thank you Remodelista for the tip. You made my day.

I too have looked for years for linen sheets. Seeing your post, I immediately ordered everything--duvet, sheets, shams. They arrived last week and are beyond gorgeous. I could not be more pleased. In addition, Tricia went out of her way to make a item that she doesn't normally make, just because. Amazing.

Good Morning Tricia
I cannot tell you how much I love my linen sheets, not sure what gives me greater pleasure sleeping in them or washing them and seeing them flap dry in the sun!  I would like to order another set so that if the weather is wet and cold (as it is at the moment) I don't have to put them in the dryer in order to get them back on my bed in the same day.
Thank you for your wonderful product - I live in Brisbane Australia
Regards ~ Jo

Tricia,
I'm thrilled with my sheets! I travel often to Italy on business and years ago I used to stay at the Grand Hotel et de Milan. How wonderful it was to stagger off an overnight flight all jet lagged and then slip into bed around into the cool, crisp linen sheets there! I feel like I now have the very same sheets in my own apartment!

I have an older set of Restoration Hardware's vintage washed linen sheets and these are so much nicer. Thanks for what you do...
Adam

Hi Tricia;
Just to let you know that I LOVE your linen. I already have the Restoration Hardware stonewashed linen set, but I can't sleep on them--they're too rough, regardless of how often I wash them (maybe because they're stonewashed?).
Anyway, since I really wanted linen bedding, I took the chance and purchased one of your smooth linen sheets, to see if yours were different. Holy Cow--are they ever! With only ONE washing it's amazing. I can't get over how comfy and soft it is. Now I have to stock up on your stuff!

By the way, I featured your lovely house and some of your linens on my blog I'd rather be living in Bora Bora.

thanks again
Karen

My new Smooth Linen Sheets
Love them! These replaced our previous set of Italian linen sheets bought from a major catalog company, which only lasted a few years (what a disappointment). I had wondered about your shipping charge for a couple of sheets, until I received the package and realized how very much more substantial these sheets are than our previous set -- there is no comparison. Really appreciate the extra depth all the way around, too, which makes making the bed so easy; they haven't come untucked once (we had paid an upcharge for extra depth on our previous set and still had issues with the sheets pulling out).
Also, speaking as a seamstress, the stitch quality is excellent, and they are laundering nicely. I have already shared the sample card with others (we have been singing the praises of sleeping on linen for years). So nice to purchase items on-line that are everything one hopes!

Very truly yours,

Helen

Tricia,
I wanted to thank you for the most AMAZING sheets ever! I have wanted a set of sheets for years, and my most wonderful family and friends went in together and got me a set for my birthday last month.

They are beyond incredible! I just ordered two pillow slips to go along with them.
I have never slept better in my life!
Brian

I absolutely love my newest smooth linen natural sheets.  The color is amazing!  I now have a white and a natural set, enough for my lifetime and perhaps my daughter’s too. 
It’s hot here in Casa Grande, AZ and I now intend on the white set being my summer set and the natural my winter set.  No need for anything besides a small throw over the bed in the middle of winter. 
The linen is precisely as you state, cool in summer and warm in winter???  How can that be?  Don’t know but it works for me. 
I would love to send you pictures as I recently redid my bedroom and master bath, however, I am the worst ever at photography so it just won’t happen, but if you are ever in the Sonoran Desert stop by and have a look, you’ll love it.
 
Kathy

Thanks so much, Tricia!. Wonderful material! 

By the way, we've been sleeping on our lovely linen sheets for a while now. We just love them! The feeling is so decadent. Soft yet textured. People often times ask me what it's like...they assume it must be scratchy. I try to explain it, but all I can ever come up with is that they are really soft but also textured.
I also love the history behind linen. The craftsmanship. The multitude of uses. The romanticism of a bygone era. The casual elegance of it. I feel like I'm sleeping in what we were meant to sleep in! And, of course, it's best sans clothing :)

Thanks so much for making such a beautiful, timeless classic! ~
Liz

Hi Trish, I love my linens from you.

I started off with one sheet, and now my bed will be complete after I order my bed skirt.,

My husband also loves sleeping in these sheets. The most luxurious sheets ever!


Cheri

We are so in love with your products.

In fact I will never be comfortable on any other sheet.

Joyus

I have been meaning to thank you for the beautiful sheets, here is a picture of them drying on my line in the city (Montreal).
When I received them it was -30 outside and I usually tend to have flannel sheets on during the winter months but I so wanted to try them right away...you know I never went back to flannel...they were super cozy. Thank you ~ Annick
love. love. love. From kathleen everett of salt point, New York on 2/2/2013. my husband and i adore these sheets. I was hesitant to buy flat sheets as bottom sheets because he plays NBA basketball in his dreams. not a problem. the sheets are so generously sized (and we have a deep mattress) that they stay in place MUCH better than the fitted bottom sheets I've been fighting with for years. the texture is divine. weight luxurious. we are lucky to live on a farm with a giant clothesline so i hang them out-can't speak to how they do in a dryer. worth every penny. love.
Sheets: My new love!
I have found a new love! I have been in the process of redecorating my master bedroom and bath. I worked with a designer friend who recommended I purchase linen sheets. I was really skeptical as my experience with linen has been quite "wrinkled".
After exploring on the web, I came across Rough Linen. I purchased just one pillow slip to begin with. I was surprised at how nicely it washed and felt against my skin. I took the plunge and purchased sheets as well.
I am in love!
The linen is textured yet delectably soft--I don't know how else to describe it. The sheets are pure luxury! I didn't say anything to my husband. He of course immediately noticed I had changed sheets.
After a couple of nights he said he really liked the sheets--the oversized dimensions and the feel. He told me to hurry and puchase more while I can! That is a first for him! I truly look forward to crawling into bed each night. Thanks Tricia for such a wonderful product that makes me feel pampered every night! ~ Linda
Review: I ordered this wondering how a flat sheet would work--guess what. A piece of cake. My mattress is very deep and heavy. After I got it in place, it stayed there. It needed very little, if any, adjustment. I am so happy with this. It is so comfortable, smooth, and luxurious. I am always looking for ways to upgrade my life, and I have found a great one. Next is the duvet cover. ~ Carol, Maryland
From the moment I unwrapped our box to see each item individually folded and bound by a beautiful ribbon with hand-written tags, I knew that I had bought something very special. It was a great experience to unwrap our sheets and pillow slips - the care and thoughtfulness made me smile.
Then, our first night with the linen - and what a treat! The sheets and pillow cases were so comfortable.
I think the best way to capture how much we love the linen is that on our first night we said "Good-bye to Egyptian cotton forever!".
We will never go back!
Thank you Tricia for giving us luxurious linen that makes me feel so special every night of the week. ~ Petrea ACT, Australia on 3/23/2013.
Hi Tricia,
My gorgeous linen arrived safely to Australia this morning...I'm totally thrilled with the quality, weight,fit and look of everything I ordered,especially the king pillowcases (the smooth linen in white for sheets and pillowcases is amazing)...and the workmanship is the best I've seen! I will be back for more soon!! (The duvet cover is not one of your pieces, so I now have my eye on your Orkney one! ) My ohh sooo inviting bed awaits me...xx ~ Toula

Thanks Toula for your wonderful photographs ~ best Tricia

Dear Tricia, I am so happy that a random internet search for sheets made in the USA led me to you! As I am sure you know, the Sonoran Desert here in Arizona can be rather a rough climate to sleep in during the summer months, even with modern conveniences like air conditioning.

I am an interior designer and know a thing or two about fibers and their applications. Intrigued by the durability and moisture-wicking properties of linen (and the obviously beautiful quality of your sheets from the site photos) I ordered a set of summer-weight white for our bed and- oh, my! They are just gorgeous!

My husband, who is always "too hot" in the summer months, still can't get over how he no longer wakes up sweating in the middle of the night, and they get softer with each wash. Thanks for making such a beautiful product and pricing it so reasonably for the quality.

Beautiful, exquisite sheets!! Quality! My best-ever purchase!! I was thrilled when I opened the box and found my beautifully wrapped and presented sheets! They are truly works of art, beautifully soft and an absolute dream to sleep in! The pillowcases are also beautiful. Comment for any other NZ buyers, NZ Customs duty adds to the price of getting them into NZ but it is well worth it - you will not be disappointed!! I will definitely be ordering more! Thank you Tricia.
The feel -- the weight, drape, and substance -- of these summer weight sheets is utterly perfect. I can see them lasting a lifetime (and beyond). And they're perfect nearly year-round for the Northern CA weather.

I found it difficult to get a photo of the sheets and duvet without my cat. One night I went to bed to find her lying in my spot, tucked in. I can't recall her ever having done that, but she appears somewhat obsessed with these sheets. Maybe it's the very subtle flaxy/grassy scent, which I love ... In my urban bedroom, they make me feel more connected to the earth and remind me I'll live in a greener place at some point.

I feel I did something really good for myself in buying these sheets and I also feel like they were an incredibly smart purchase given how long they'll last (almost bought the CB2 sheets and am infinitely relieved I found your site in my research). I think I've landed on the perfect combo here, but I almost want an excuse to buy more... Maybe there's a a colorful St Bart's duvet cover in my future, for the really cold nights.

So: Thanks for the lovely internet shopping experience, the impeccable workmanship (I'm a beginning sewer and I marvel at the edges), and the free lavender bag, which I keep in my bed and which is a small but indispensable pleasure. ~ Laurie

This is the highest quality bedding product I have ever owed! I feel like royalty! Love the very generous size. So nice when your husband rolls over a takes the cover with him; there is still some left for me! Also, love the smoothness and consistency of the linen and the 'hand' of the fabric. Very pleased with this purchase!
I received my lovely linens very quickly, just over a week after placing my order, which is great seeing we live in the most isolated city in the world! The package was beautifully presented, it felt like such a luxury! Pity it was pouring with rain the morning it had arrived but thankfully it cleared up long enough to get the sheets dry and onto the bed that afternoon! The children had a lovely early night and so did I!

Sleeping in linen feels so much more luxurious and I love the generous sizing of the sheets, greatly appreciated when sleeping next to a cyclone! I am also impressed that the bottom sheet stays tucked in just as a fitted sheet does and can now alternate the sheets readily which is bound to save on fitted sheets!

Thank you Tricia and the Rough Linen team for such a great service and product! Look forward to future purchases! ~ Ingrid Iaschi of Western Australia,

I himmed and hawed for a long time before buying these sheets. I almost bought Restoration Hardware's...they were a tad less expensive and still I thought they were quite a lot. I never in a million years thought I'd spend this kind of money on sheets....but I have to say, it was more than worth it.
I love that they are locally made, no chemicals are used in the manufacturing process (I can't stand when sheets are finished with formaldehyde) and they are of such high high quality. I gave them to my husband and me for Valentine's Day and explained to my husband that they will last us 100 years...and we'll be Valentine's for 100 years.
They are super comfortable, sexy and relaxed at the same time. Cozy and luxurious, like we are in a fancy hotel. These will be the only sheets we ever use again. I can't wait to buy more for my kids!! ~ Celeste
After thinking about ordering these sheets for several months, I finally made the move and am so very happy that I did. They really surprised me with how wonderful they feel. I was a bit concerned about my husband's reaction but he absolutely loves them, and is impressed with the workmanship on them. I've been hanging them outside and they dry in no time. We'll be moving to a colder climate soon, but these sheets will still be hung outside. We hope to order more, maybe in the natural. Thank you for creating such a wonderful product! ~ Marguerite
Love my Cal King smooth white linen sheet!

I am now a convert to the european style flat sheet tucked as bottom sheet, and our linen duvet covering us in lieu of a top sheet. Such a lovely, textured, sensual feeling against the skin.

My next order will be the oversized Cal King in smooth natural. Although the Cal King tucks well in width, it is not as generous a tuck in length. The oversize should be perfect.

Thank you for an heirloom quality product, Tricia. It's lovely. ~ Anon, Ventura, CA

Linda loves her new Rough Linen Smooth White Linen
It looks so inviting in my little bedroom, in my little downtown condo in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
I've been dreaming about these linens for one year. Finally did it and I'm a happy girl! No more percale bamboo or jersey for me!
Thank you Linda - BTW go http://rufflinen.com ~ Tricia
Rupert too loves his new Smooth White Linen sheet, pillowslips and duvet and says: "Ruff, Ruff (linen)!!"
"The sheets start out with that lovely crisp feeling, and as you wash them they become softer, more vintagey, softer and softer, better and better.
Just to look at them gives me joy - the texture, the linen weave - and to sleep on them is nothing short of heavenly…
Do I need to go on?!" ~ Malibu, CA

Smooth Linen natural sheet
From Irina Phillips of Clovis, California on 6/8/2014.
Very nice color and texture. After washing it once and sleeping on it for a week you can feel it getting softer. Like everything else I bought from Rough Linen it has amazing craftsmanship!

Rough Linen sheets
From Jenny Schmidt of Picton,, New Zealand on 6/8/2014.
We are so pleased we found Rough Linen and could purchase and have sheets sent to NZ. The sheets feel quite different to the cotton sheets we have previously used, these sheets feel warm and soft. As it is winter here we notice the sheets don't feel cold in the morning. They are so comfortable. We love them.

Highly recommended
From Christopher Frame of Brookline, Massachusetts on 5/28/2014.
Feel great and look even better after you've slept on them.

A tactile treat
From Anonymous of Edmongs, Washington on 5/23/2014.
Sleeping on linen sheets has been a new, lovely experience. I love the way they feel when I slide into bed and then snug the top sheet over me. Sometimes during the night I awaken slightly and notice the texture against my skin. These sheets are engaging my senses in a new way! We're still learning how to make the bed so it stays tucked in--I'm totally onboard with the idea, though, because I've had numerous fitted sheets wear out long before the rest of the set needed to be retired. Rough Linen sheets will be a long-term presence here.

Lovely Sheets
From Erin of Rural, South Dakota on 5/22/2014.
Was always intrigued by linen sheets, but had never tried them. SO glad that I did! I like a crisp (not too soft) feeling sheet and these fit the bill perfectly. My husband even commented that they are very comfortable. The textured feel is fantastic and they are great at keeping us warm or cool depending on the night. This will not be my last purchase from Rough Linen. Now I just need to keep working on making my hospital corners perfectly!

Always fresh and cool
From Jana of Amherst, Massachusetts on 5/21/2014.
This sheet gets softer and more lovely with each washing yet still retains its textured feel. Dries way more quickly than cotton and needs little detergent to get clean. This linen hardly wrinkles at all when left to finish drying on the bed. For a special treat, I spritz it with scented water, smooth it out, and call it an early night! I have the Orkney natural duvet cover too (for summer I take the duvet insert out). Expect some lint with the first washing. With just 1 wash it has developed a beautiful luster and softness. Do not hesitate to buy Rough Linen!

Perfect Sheets
From Wendy Monk of Accord, New York on 5/17/2014.
These sheets are perfect to sleep on, they have a wonderful hang, feel great against the skin, tuck in beautifully - I can't wait to buy more.

Sheets
From Stephen Jennings of Tallahassee, Florida on 5/10/2014.
Well, it would be very hard to go back to cotton after these. Superb weight, feel, and they launder beautifully. Scrape together the funds & buy.

Simple pleasure
From Tricia Jackson of Crescent, Iowa on 5/6/2014.

My sheets are simply beautiful. The texture is softer and more comfortable than you would think. I enjoy making my bed everyday.

Wonderful sheet!
From Maria Elhardt of South San Francisco, California on 5/2/2014.
Feels much more durable than sheets we have had in the past. The weave looks coarser (easier to see individual threads), but it is not scratchy or stiff and has not wrinkled nearly as much as I expected it would. We love it.

Glorious!
From Anonymous of Nashville, Tennessee on 4/30/2014.
Don't hesitate to purchase these sheets! I've never had linen sheets before...these are pure luxury and worth the money! I did a lot of research and shopping before this purchase, and I'm glad I purchased from Rough Linen!

The Best White Sheet
From Anonymous of Malibu , California on 4/24/2014.
I
now have two of the Standard White Sheets, as well as 2 Standard White pillow cases, 2 St Barts pillow cases and a St Barts duvet cover from Rough Linen…
Everything is amazing - light, fresh, warm, cool, cozy, exactly as you wish it was exactly when you want it.
The sheets start out with that lovely crisp feeling, and as you wash them they become softer, more vintagey, softer and softer, better and better.
Just to look at them gives me joy - the texture, the linen weave - and to sleep on them is nothing short of heavenly…
Do I need to go on?!

I absolutely LOVE linen bedding
From Lynn Landry-Rody of Thunder Bay, ON, Ontario on 4/18/2014.
I just want to tell you that I LOVE my linen bedding and towels.
My grandmother wove linen dish towels in the early 1920's, she used them for 75 years. The more they were used the more wonderful they became. Because Grandma and Mom were appreciators of natural fibres, I grew up with an appreciation of them too. I am celebrating my natural fibre knitting, weaving and spinning store's, 20th Anniversary this year. Threads in Time, natural, healthy, beautiful product for people who love to create fine accessories and apparel. Thank you Tricia for providing the world with healthy, natural linens. Gratefully, Lynn

Worth It
From Andrew of Denver, Colorado on 4/16/2014.
I spent the last handful of years buying decent sheets at a discount on Overstock and they were always hit or miss. They'd either be uncomfortable or tip. I decided on linen sheets and found Rough Linen through apartment therapy. I've been extremely happy with my purchase. Not only do they feel great but the natural color looks very nice in the bedroom.

Elegant • Fabulous • Wonderful • Soothing • Love !!!
From Zola of Roseville, California on 4/12/2014.
Can't say enough about your lovely sheets. They are awesome. I am thrilled your linens are in my house too! I am sleeping in pure luxury thanks to you Tricia! Very impressed. Love the properties of linen. I am Soooo pleased with your expertise Tricia and your awesome linen products. Your lavender sachet is a lovely touch too. Well done!

Beautiful sheets
From Rose Blamey of West Vancouver, British Columbia on 4/6/2014.
The sheets are absolutely lovely. The quality of the linen is stellar. My only disappointment is that I was advised to purchase sheets that are too large. I understand that the extra size is needed for the bottom sheet as it isn't fitted but is still too large; and the top sheet is really too large and all of it is very difficult to tuck in. I will wash them a couple more time before taking them to be cut and re-hemmed. They are gorgeous though!

Lesson learned
From Mary of Goonellabah, NSW, Australia on 3/29/2014.
I have to make a sad confession - I bought a second pair of linen sheets from another supplier and I am disappointed. I so loved (still do) the white sheets, Orkney pillowcases, and summer throw that I got from you.
I thought I'd get another set of linen sheets and bought them on-line from a small Australian supplier as I do try and support local business.
When I wash your sheets and they dry on the line, the creases blow out and they have a smooth fluidity that I really enjoy. I love the deep hem at the top of the sheet, the feel of the sheets when I get into bed.........
None of this applies to the other linen sheets I bought. They always look crumpled rather than natural, aren't as soft and just don't feel special.
So, a lesson learned!

Your linen is fabulous!
From Maria of Cashton, Wisconsin on 3/28/2014.
I absolutely love linen. Your linen is fabulous !!!!! I almost have everything but the Duvet.
After my white sheet. I love simple things but quality. I have a farm house among the Amish people and they taught us that living simple is real.
I can not be any happier with your outstanding quality and linen fabric and every product of your linen. I will have your linen always in my home and in my heart.

Alright, I'm impressed
From John Chapman of Dallas, Texas on 2/28/2014.
My wife made me buy these sheets. I was really skeptical that any sheet could be worth this much money. I was wrong. They are amazing. I love the texture and weight. It's quite apparent they will last forever. Within a month, I had already ordered another set. Keep up the great work!

Love Flat Sheets!
From Sandra Ross of Marietta, Georgia on 2/23/2014.
We have a sleigh bed and it's always been difficult to make up with fitted sheets. Who would think a flat sheet would be superior?~~but it IS! Flat is adjustable! Flat is smooth! Flat is comfortable! Love the sheets!

Lovely!
From Craig Buchholz of Edmonton, Alberta on 2/20/2014.
I wasn't sure what to expect out of these sheets. I was particularly worried about not having a fitted sheet (since I had never made a bed with a bottom flat sheet before). These are beautiful! They wash well, and have a warm and soft feel to them. I would recommend them!

Just do it
From Celeste Perez of Greenbrae, California on 2/16/2014.
I himmed and hawed for a long time before buying these sheets. I almost bought Restoration Hardware's...they were a tad less expensive and still I thought they were quite a lot.

King Flat Sheet
From Robyn Raley of Sonoita, Arizona on 1/23/2014.
I Love this sheet. I decided to get the King for my Queen. My husband is a tosser and a turner and the Queen sheet just seemed to come undone during the night. I'm so happy with this King sheet and it feels heavenly to sleep in.

Wonderful quality!
From Marguerite Junod of Orlando, Florida on 12/2/2013.

I was a bit concerned about my husband's reaction but he absolutely loves them, and is impressed with the workmanship on them. I've been hanging them outside and they dry in no time. We'll be moving to a colder climate soon, but these sheets will still be hung outside. We hope to order more, maybe in the natural. Thank you for creating such a wonderful product!

Luxurious and practical
From kem of Marietta, Georgia on 11/17/2013.
We are thoroughly enjoying the linen sheets. At first we were not used to the texture, but as we have washed the sheets they have softened a little. They feel like my favorite summer linen skirt. The sheets dry quickly in the fresh air outside. My husband noted that they seem to "breathe" more than our cotton sheets. The quality of the stitching and linen is just what I was expecting. We are very happy with our purchase.

Thank you
From Gabrielle of San Francisco, California on 11/14/2013.
I love these sheets and pillow cases so much. I had been on the hunt for years and am so happy that I found your site! I look forward to adding to my collection in the future.
Thank you again for investing the time in making some really beautiful products.

Bed Makeover
From Gael of Ukiah, California on 11/8/2013.
This could become a dangerous obsession! I was on the quest for a luxurious bed that also looked great. Linen was not my first choice, but I took the plunge after some research. At first, I was nervous that I wouldn't like them because of the "stiffness", but after a few washes, they began to transform. And they do in the night! Amazing stuff, and super beautiful. Love, love, love my bed. I have since ordered more for a second bed and the seasons. You all should feel proud of creating something so completely delivering of quality in an era when the meaning of that word is lost. Thank you! P.S. My cat says,"It's about time..."!

Wonderfully comfortable
From Beth Ann Locke of Vancouver, British Columbia on 10/29/2013.
I was so excited about getting these sheets. I had been looking at deep gray sheets at another online store, then read up more about linen (after hearing they were "difficult") and came across Rough Linen. I was a bit worried that my husband, who doesn't always enjoy new things, might balk. He sleeps very well. Maybe even less snoring?!

Love my sheet
From Katharine Clinard of Cleveland, Georgia on 10/25/2013.
I use the white sheet as a coverlet/bedspread and it brightens up the room. Love the size! 130 by 130 gives me plenty of covering. I will definitely order more from Rough Linen in the future.

highly recommended
From Catherine Caldwell of Boca Grande, Florida on 10/18/2013.
Wonderful quality and great weight for our warm SW Fl weather. I purchased two sheets and two pillow slips. I will be purchasing more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beautiful!
From Jenny of Sterling, Virginia on 10/6/2013.
Beautiful weight, supple, comforting feel, cool and do not absorb body heat. Soft white glow color. Love the texture and hand. Beautifully sewn and finished. I love them.

I love linen
From Anonymous of Ottawa, Ontario on 9/30/2013.
I love the linen sheets. I have a high queen bed but I ordered the king for lots of tucking on the bottom and overhang on the top.

EXQUISITE!!!
From Carol of Porirua, New Zealand on 9/27/2013.
Beautiful, exquisite sheets!! Quality! My best-ever purchase!! I was thrilled when I opened the box and found my beautifully wrapped and presented sheets! They are truly works of art, beautifully soft and an absolute dream to sleep in! The pillowcases are also beautiful. Comment for any other NZ buyers, NZ Customs duty adds to the price of getting them into NZ but it is well worth it - you will not be disappointed!! I will definitely be ordering more! Thank you Tricia.

Lovely!!
From Emily L of Phoenix, Arizona on 9/19/2013.
I am so happy that a random internet search for sheets made in the USA led me to you! As I am sure you know, the Sonoran Desert here in Arizona can be rather a rough climate to sleep in during the summer months, even with modern conveniences like air conditioning.
I am an interior designer and know a thing or two about fibers and their applications. Intrigued by the durability and moisture-wicking properties of linen (and the obviously beautiful quality of your sheets from the site photos) I ordered a set of summer-weight white for our bed and- oh, my! They are just gorgeous!
My husband, who is always "too hot" in the summer months, still can't get over how he no longer wakes up sweating in the middle of the night, and they get softer with each wash. Thanks for making such a beautiful product and pricing it so reasonably for the quality.
I definitely see a reorder in my future...

keep finding beautiful linens
From Kristine of Vallejo, California on 9/14/2013.
Hi, Tricia, here are my linen photos and pics of redecorated bedroom. I love your site. I will be a life long customer and am saving for a new Duvet cover!!!
Thank you for teaching me to make square hospital corners and what a bolster is actually for!! Who knew??
Thanks again, your ordering, and delivery are exceptional. Very happy with the order confirmations and speed of delivery. I knew I had made the right choice as soon as I picked up the USPS box, very heavy:)
Please keep finding beautiful linens!!
Warm Regards, ~ Kristine

Summer white sheet
From Irma of Blaine, Minnesota on 9/14/2013.
The summer sheet is perfect for me. I am a warm sleeper so this is a better weight than heavy linen. Is there a chance that natural sheets will someday be available in summer weight?

Generous
From Katherine McLean of Victoria, British Columbia on 9/9/2013.
I love how generous this sheet is. I can drape it or tuck it in and it makes the king size bed so much easier to make. It feels luxurious and it makes me feel pampered!

I am amazed!
From Laura of Hopkins, Minnesota on 9/5/2013.
We have a 'sleep number' bed on which fitted sheets just bunch up in huge wrinkles. The linen flat sheet gets tucked in better and stays put! I am amazed! I love it.

Amazing bed linens.
From Elizabeth Bennett of Swansboro, North Carolina on 9/4/2013.
The quality & craftsmanship of these linens is evident from the moment you open the package. Perfect mid weight, oversized, smooth yet strong linen. The seams are finished beautifully and the seams are STRAIGHT. I have already orderied more linens.

The best
From Amanda Outten of Elk, California on 9/1/2013.
Really, this is the best sheet I have slept on in years. Any woman going through menopause and having hot flashes needs this sheet. So cool, so crisp (if lightly starched), so calm. I also bought 2 more sheets to make curtains. Because the flat sheets are so big it is easy to get a nice tight fit when making the bed.

twin sheet
From Rob of Waltham, Massachusetts on 8/31/2013.
I love this sheet! It's the perfect texture and weight for use all year. Quality linen sheets are hard to find for a reasonable price. We can't sleep with anything else. Linen stays crisp and fresh while other fabrics just get yucky after a few nights. If you're a hot sleeper absolutely nothing else will do.

Feel like royalty!
From Kim Brown of Florence, Alabama on 8/31/2013.
This is the highest quality bedding product I have ever owed! I feel like royalty! Love the very generous size. So nice when your husband rolls over a takes the cover with him; there is still some left for me! Also, love the smoothness and consistency of the linen and the 'hand' of the fabric. Very pleased with this purchase!

utterly perfect
From Laurie of San Francisco, California on 8/30/2013.
The feel -- the weight, drape, and substance -- of these summer weight sheets is utterly perfect. I can see them lasting a lifetime (and beyond). And they're perfect nearly year-round for the Northern CA weather.
I found it difficult to get a photo of the sheets and duvet without my cat. One night I went to bed to find her lying in my spot, tucked in. I can't recall her ever having done that, but she appears somewhat obsessed with these sheets. Maybe it's the very subtle flaxy/grassy scent, which I love ... In my urban bedroom, they make me feel more connected to the earth and remind me I'll live in a greener place at some point.
I feel I did something really good for myself in buying these sheets and I also feel like they were an incredibly smart purchase given how long they'll last (almost bought the CB2 sheets and am infinitely relieved I found your site in my research). I think I've landed on the perfect combo here, but I almost want an excuse to buy more... Maybe there's a a colorful St Bart's duvet cover in my future, for the really cold nights.
So:
Thanks for the lovely internet shopping experience, the impeccable workmanship (I'm a beginning sewer and I marvel at the edges), and the free lavender bag, which I keep in my bed and which is a small but indispensable pleasure. ~ Laurie
