    After two years of visiting the Rough Linen site nearly daily and picturing my bed dressed in any number of combinations, I made the investment in the Orkney summer cover and white sheets and pillow cases. Each piece is exquisite, but the summer cover is especially beautiful. Though I love the colored linen, I wanted one piece in the original and undyed flax - the Orkney summer cover is so lovely against skin - fluid, lightweight, and it has a hand that is just not found in any other fabric. Also - the gift of the lavender sachet continues to make sleeping in these sheets an unrivaled experience. I will be purchasing more.

    It just doesn't get any better than Rough Linen...

    In the day and age of mass produced and mediocre to poor quality, Rough Linen gives us something real. The simplest of a quality material and careful attention to craftsmanship has comforted both my husband and I after long and hectic days. Our "Summer Bed " envelops us in pure luxury on what has turned out to be a very hot summer. We simply do not know how we lived without Rough Linen sheets for this long. Tricia and her team offer up the most wonderful customer-centric experience and follow up till actual delivery. You just don't get this type of service and product nowadays. Tricia I hope you do this for a very long time and I send you an abundant amount of blessings. So that more of us can discover and continue to enjoy the wonderful world of Rough Linen ! I will be ordering more of your beautiful items������

    Sumptuous Sleeping

    This is a wonderful set of bedding. The flat sheet is generously sized and makes up the bed easily as a bottom sheet. I quite like making the bed with hospital corners instead of using a standard fitted sheet. The pillow cases feel a little rough against my skin, so I am using them for the pillows that go underneath the pillows I rest my head on (I make up my Queen bed with four pillows). The Orkney Summer Cover is the real treat here, however. It caresses the body in linen goodness. All of the pieces are well made, wash well and the quality of the fabric is excellent. I am very pleased that I switched to linen bedding. More expensive, yes, but so worth it.
