Also available in St. Barts linen.
Shams come in all the Orkney colors (natural, off-white, black, charcoal, indigo and dusk). You also have a choice of perfectly plain two-hole buttons in white, black, or the subtle natural texture of coconut. There is an invisible zipper option for minimalists. (I can’t show you a photo. It’s invisible).
Shams are best 2” smaller than their infill, so they look plump and full (watch my video Choosing Infills). Pillowslips on the other hand are loose, for comfort.
Material: 100% Linen. Heavyweight "Orkney"
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).
queen 20" x 28"
king 20" x 36"
Care: Machine wash, dry outside for preference, do not over-dry. Put it on the bed slightly damp, and smooth it into place. Dampen fabric to make wrinkles disappear.
"I wanted to find special linens to compliment my mom's special Hawaiian hand stitched quilt and found them!"

"After one year, I have finally been able to complete my Rough Linen bedding set - the black Orkney duvet cover and shams were the perfect way to finish it off."
~ Tom Marzal
"The Duvet cover and shams are my first purchases. I can't tell you how pleased I am with them. The bed after many years in the doldrums looks spectacular! And comfy!"
