The St. Barts Summer Cover is an airy, single layer blanket with a light drape, perfect for hot summer nights. In cooler weather, use it as a layering piece for extra warmth. Three inch hems and mitered corners look neat and structured whether the bed is made or not, and bed-making couldn't be simpler, just a flick of your wrist and you're done. Made to live with, and love.
Individually cut and crafted in California.
You might be interested in my Summer Bed: a Summer Cover with a sheet and two pillow slips.
Material: 100% Linen. Midweight "St. Barts"
twin 76" wide x 100"
queen 105" wide x 100"
king 120" wide x 100"
(No CalKing size. The king is large enough for a CalKing bed.)
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.
Other: The St. Barts Summer Cover has two long seams running parallel to the sides of the bed.
Wonderful. The colour is amazing. Nothing is better than sleeping on 100% linen.
I haven’t used a flat sheet for years since I hate how they end up all wrapped around you in the morning. I’ve been using a bottom sheet with either a light quilt (summer) or a duvet with duvet cover (winter). I bought my first summer cover (now have 3) to use the same way I use my quilts. Turns out I love them so much more than the quilts. They’re lighter so I don’t get as hot, and they’re bigger so the fit the bed sort of like a bedspread. There’s no getting tangled up in them. And for the winter, I plan to still use them with a light duvet on top for more precise temperature regulation. I live in the Mid-Atlantic so, while it gets cold, it’s not overly cold. And my bed room is a converted attic loft, so it’s open to the downstairs and the heat rises such that it never gets too cold even without a separate heating unit. The summer covers are the key to this set up working and Rough Linen is the only place I’ve been able to find something like this. I guess a king flat sheet on a queen bed may work, but probably wouldn’t have the nice stitching down both sides. I just love these things!
i got swatches and a summer cover. I reviewed the cover in another review. The swatches are helpful; the fabrics are beautiful. I can’t wait buy more items in all the colors.
Excellent purchase! The best quality I have seen.
We love our Rough Linen Summer Cover. We live in south Florida, and for most of the year the temperatures do not drop during the night. I have removed our cotton blanket and now we sleep with only the sheets and the Summer Cover. Not only does it make our bed look beautiful, but my husband is sleeping much more soundly now because of the lighter weight.
