Orkney Linen Bolster


We use bolsters to fill that angle between mattress and headboard which eats pillows: try it to make reading in bed much more comfortable. Closure is a YKK invisible zipper in the seam.

Because the bolster cover squeezes inserts into the desired shape, I suggest filling them with king-size pillows. Save precious down pillows for sleeping on! You can buy bolsters at a discount as part of the bed makeover package.


Product Information

Material: 100% Linen. Heavyweight "Orkney," invisible zipper in seam.
Dimensions: 8" diameter x 32"
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.

    Love these bolsters excellent for reading in bed!

    I bought two king size pillows as suggested. They are just perfect . I have a question about smooth linen sheets are they cool to the touch or more like flanel I like sateen sheets they are cool to the touch.

    Bolster happiness

    I love making my bed with the Orkney bolsters and linen pillows. They make the bed look nice and are a pleasure to use. I’ve never been a good bed maker, but with the rough linen duvet, pillow shams and bolsters I feel like I can finally make a nice bed that looks put together and welcoming at the same time.

    Love my two bolsters

    Another gem from Rough Linen. Especially grateful for the tip on filling it with a cheap king-size pillow.

    Beautiful Bolsters

    I absolutely love all my Rough Linen products and can not imagine sleeping on anything else. The bolsters are perfect. Exactly what I wanted to fill in that ‘space’. They look great on the bed with the white or grey linens. Thanks for continuing to make beautiful linens that will last forever!

    Absolutely Perfect Bolster Pillows

    I decided to try bolster pillows to make reading in bed more comfortable and Rough Linen fit the bill. Other products had bulky zipper pulls, synthetic fabrics, odd sizes that would make it difficult to find pillow inserts, were too small for my king size bed, or had sleeves you have to stuff the bolster into with tootsie roll ends and ribbon ties that were fussy and unattractive. Rough Linen makes the perfect bolster with a truly hidden zipper, superior craftsmanship, beautiful natural fabric, simple design and it's the perfect size. I used a plain white king pillow as the insert so the print on the pillow wouldn't show through the bolster fabric - this was recommended by someone else and I thank them. The Orkney fabric is gorgeous and has won my heart so now I have my eyes on the duvet. I appreciate the products Tricia Rose has created as well as the fact that her products are made in the USA and I'll continue to support this company when I can.
