Our Smooth Linen flat sheets are large enough to tuck around your mattress. Using traditional hospital corners ensures a perfect fit - the sheet stays securely in place thanks to its generous size. One end is finished with a handsome 5" hem, so it is suitable as a top sheet as well.
Woven to our own specification in 100% pure linen, this fine sheeting is breathable and smooth to the touch. Choose from three colors: Natural, Pure White and a cool Light Grey. Natural is a soft taupe, neither bleached nor dyed, straight from the fields. White is yarn-bleached for strength, without optical brighteners: it will lighten with washing and use. Light Grey is a soft, perfect neutral with a modern feel.
Individually cut and crafted in California.
Note: 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, we have now introduced a seriously oversized sheet — 127" x 127"
Material: 100% Linen. Strong "Smooth"
twin 80" wide x 120"
queen 100" wide x 120"
king 118" wide x 120"
calking 118" wide x 125"
supersize 127" wide x 127"
Care: Machine wash with a small amount of gentle detergent, not Tide. Tumble dry on hot or medium, and remove from the dryer while still very slightly damp so wrinkles do not set. Shake the fabric out flat and smooth it with your hands. If you can dry outside, let fresh air and sun work their magic. Allowance is made for shrinkage.
I purchased one flat smooth linen sheet in white and have used it as a bottom sheet and also as a top sheet. I have never slept on linen before and was interested to see if I was as hot in the summer sleeping with linen as with a regular sheet (tmi but which I always sweat on). Bottom line: a surprisingly cool and very soft sleep! I am not Sweaty Betty. Will absolutely purchase another one. Just waiting for a sale as they are expensive. Also: the sheet washes beautifully and dries quickly when you take it out damp. I use a spray bottle as suggested to mist water on the exposed sheet of the made bed to smooth wrinkles out. It works like magic.
The oversized smooth linen sheets, in white, are superb. I'm familiar with these sheets, since I have purchased the same sheets, in other colours, in the past. And shared them with friends, naturally. These actually seem just a bit softer and smoother out of the box, a texture that took about five washings for the previous purchases to reach. Having a white, floppy, generous, cloud of fabric to sleep in is almost sinful.
