Orkney Linen Duvet Cover


Also available in St Barts and Smooth linen.

The signature Orkney duvet cover, made from the linen that started it all. This was my first product — I sleep under it every night.

Elemental … timeless, plain, natural linen woven on traditional single-width looms, three pieces joined with with minimum seams. The fabric begins with its own clean, crisp texture, softening with wear and washing to a silvery sheen.

I added off-white, black, charcoal and now dusk. The plainest of buttons, natural coconut shell or white, and black buttons for black. Invisible zippers (we call it 'the Architect's Version') for minimalists.

Product Information

A duvet cover should fit the infill snugly, up to 6" smaller all round to ensure that it doesn't shift. I have even put a king infill into a queen cover, with cosy results. Please measure your duvet, as infill sizes are not standard.

For all custom requests please fill out the following form: Custom Duvet Cover

How Did I Live Without My Rough Linen!

I had been wanting linen sheets forever and my boyfriend decided to buy them for me for Xmas. From the moment I opened the beautiful package, I knew I was going to love them. My boyfriend then decided he needed a whole new bed and ordered his. I promptly followed up by ordering the duvet in dusk which is a perfect compliment for a chair with homemade slipcovers and my valances. A little luxury goes such a long way and makes me feel like a queen when I go to bed or just walk in the room! Thanks Rough Linen.

Love the Orkney Linen!

This is my second Orkney Linen Duvet Cover so I can swap them out easily when cleaning is necessary. I never place my linen duvets in the dryer, but hang them on a large rolling garmet rack instead. And while the linen does dry quickly, it’s nice to have a second to make up the bed immediately rather than waiting for the other to dry. I’m a big fan of Rough Linen’s bedding pieces!
