    Orkney Linen Bath Sheet

    65 reviews
    vintage blue

    We love thin, sturdy linen towels because they dry quickly and rarely smell musty, since linen is inherently antimicrobial.

    If you prefer soft, fluffy towels, stay away from linen. The crisp ‘hand’ of these Orkney linen towels is bracing and invigorating Your skin will feel clean, polished and wide awake. An acquired taste, but I have had so many requests from customers, here it is!

    We present the big, big, bath sheet; generously sized to make a cozy cocoon or a modest sarong from armpit to knee.

      Elegant & Healthy Choice

      Love the linen towels and will never return to terry cloth. They feel wonderful, absorbs quickly, massages the skin, and no musty scent later when hanging up! They look beautiful and the linen lasts. In the long run, they are quality worth more than their initial investment.

      1 in Natural, 1 in Dusk

      I just bought two bath sheets, 1 in natural and 1 in dusk. The natural one is great. It is as expected with a crisp 'hand' that I'll love after a shower. The dusk was not as expected as far as the fabric goes. There are so many lighter colored pieces of flax woven throughout it, one of them many inches long and wide enough to be extremely noticeable. I'm used to a few small (centimeter or so) of these lighter pieces as I also own the dusk shams and some washcloths. I ADORE the color dusk, but I can't recommend this fabric with all of these lighter pieces woven throughout it. Rating: 3 for the dusk and 5 for the natural, averaging to a 4 stars.

      Natural A/C for sleeping

      I bought a few of these bath sheets after the past heatwave in southern CA. During that, I used a soaked and wrung out RL bath towel (which is smaller) to sleep under. As the water evaporates, it cools you down. Woke up to a nearly dry and not at all clammy towel and bedding and feeling like I’d gotten the needed respite from the heat of the day without having to use my A/C. I got the larger bath sheets for more coverage, but not so large that there was wet material soaking the bed or dripping onto the floor. I will admit that the first few seconds of covering your body with a cold wet towel is a bit unpleasant. The initial shock goes away quickly and I fell right to sleep. Not the standard review, but I figured it might be useful info this summer, and especially for those up in the PNW right now.

      Extensive Enduring Lint Issues

      have been buying Rough Linen for years. I LOVE their linens. But the last year or so I have ventured into the color fog and have had extensive lint issues. In the picture is a vintage blue towel washed with 2 new fog bath sheets. The lint gets on EVERYTHING I wash it with. It's obvious on the vintage blue but really can't been seen on the fog. However, when you dry off with a towel with unseen lint, the lint rolls up and attaches to your wet body. Its very unpleasant. Last year, I returned a charcoal robe for this same issue, but thought it was robe specific. It doesn't seem to happen with my washcloths. I even took apart and cleaned my washing machine to make sure very bit of lint was gone. The lint continued. I do not happily write this. I love Rough Linen products. I would continue to buy them if the lint issue is resolved. For now, I am using piles of lint rollers sheets with every wash, and I’m going to wash the new items dozens of times without using them to see if that helps. I hate dryer dried linens, which would probably help. I indoor line dry. Any advice would be appreciated. Right now it doesn’t look like the website is letting me add pictures I will see if it will let me later
