Pillowcases come in one fabric (Smooth) and five colors. Natural is a soft taupe, straight from the field. Pure white is a classic, fresh bright white. The light grey is a perfectly neutral shade with a modern feel. Ivory is a soft off-white tone. Sky is a soft, warm blue, light and ethereal.
My close-woven, commissioned sheeting is water-finished, no need to wash before use. Allowance is made for shrinkage.
Material: 100% Linen. "Smooth"
standard 20" x 26"
queen 20" x 30"
king 20" x 36"
euro 26" x 26"
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.
Pillow slip arrived nicely packaged. The first night it was a bit scratchy. Did not use on the second night because of this. On day three I ran it through the wash and hung it out to dry. Later, I ironed and put it back on the bed. Has been real soft since. Matter of fact, it seems to be one of my favorites. Will definitely purchase the additional pieces to make this a set. Will you be having a white sale or maybe a bundle with sheets and one pillow case soon
These pillow slips actually finalised our conversion to an all-linen bedding household. We now have three large beds and one single all exclusively in linen. The softness of linen with its "warm when you are cold, cool when you are hot" feel is wonderful to sleep on, and the older it gets the softer it gets. The pale natural colours are perfect and go beautifully in our old south of France house, but they would probably go well anywhere. I am never going back to cotton.
Fantastic sleeping on these slips! The more I wash them the better they get. Can't wait until I can outfit the entire bed with your linens!
Goodbye cotton :)
I just love the entire Orkney line of bed linens.
