Material: 100% Linen. Heavyweight "Orkney"
queen 20" x 28"
king 20" x 36"
square 24" x 24" (note: Our square shams are 2" smaller than a standard euro size because we like them to fit snugly - it looks neater and gives more support for leaning up against).
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.
The sheets and casings are great they get softer as they age. Will always purchase linen from this company.
I use these shams as pillow cases. I'm not a fan of button closures, so the zippers are perfect (and it's no exaggeration to say that they really are almost invisible). The linen has a wonderful, rich feel, and the craftsmanship is first-rate.
I absolutely love them! gradually I have replaced all our shams with the Rough Linen shams.
This linen is beautiful. It’s hard to describe the quality you can “feel in your fingers”. There’s a weight to it, and although it still has a comfortable softness there is that beautiful roughness to it at the same time. I would highly recommend the Orkney collection. Also, we ordered Black and it is a deep lovely black.
I’ve now bought several beds worth of linens from Tricia, and each time I am pleased with the quality. I bought the charcoal shams for a winter look for our otherwise white and natural Orkney covered bed and I’m loving the look and of course the feel of linen. Can’t go back to regular cotton sheets now except for my grandmother’s old ones in the summertime.
