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.
I recently ordered a couple of square pillow shams to finally make my whole bed a Rough Linen situation and had a heck of a time finding the right pillows for them. As Tricia predicted, down/feather combos were too squishy for leaning against to read. Synthetic “down alternative” were a little better, but still too squishy and oh my god, so HEAVY. Poly inserts were way too wimpy. I’m really kind of embarrassed by how much time I devoted to this problem, but it was DRIVING ME CRAZY! So I wanted to pass on the pillow I found that fits this square sham perfectly (even the corners!!!) and has the perfect amount of support for bedtime reading: https://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/store/product/wamsutta-reg-gussetted-quilted-european-square-pillow/3273343?strategy=pdp_cav Hope this helps!
I have been attempting to save for Rough Linen bedding for three years! Thanks to the generous coupon code celebrating their 10th birthday I was able to move forward with part of my purchase. I’m very pleased with the Orkney Shams. I chose the off white with zipper closures in the king size. The fabric is thick and sturdy with excellent craftsmanship, I love how minimal they look with the zipper closure, it’s not noticeable at all and the shams look very neat and tidy. I also purchased a sheet and pillow slips in white, I wanted to note that, yes, there is a very slight difference in color between the off white shams and the bright white sheets but, to me, it’s not noticeable at all with the linens on my bed. This is my second purchase from Rough Linen, it was well worth the wait to save and get exactly what I wanted and I can’t wait to completely change out my bedding to Rough Linen. Thank you to each member of the Rough Linen family for your products and your service.
Love the charcoal shams - I ordered them with the coconut buttons but they arrived with the zipper shams - which I think I like in the end anyway so I am going to keep them and not worry about it. Beautiful high quality linen, soft and delicious :)
Dear Anna, our apologies for the mixup. Please email jennifer@roughlinen if you wish to exchange your shams. We'd like you to be happy with your purchase.
This is a beautiful piece, the fabric is beautiful and the workmanship first class. I will definitely purchase Rough Linen for all my linen needs.
