Linen fabric is woven from the fibres of the flax plant, a crop grown predominantly in Western Europe. Major Minor fabric originates in Belgium.
Airy and soft, pure linen feels cool to touch. It has a high propensity to absorb moisture without feeling wet.
THE LINEN LOOK
Aside from the comfort of sleeping in linen, you will love the look of it in your bedroom. Linen bedding has a distinctive texture and drape, which is both stylish on it’s own and highly adaptable to many bedroom styles.
CARING FOR YOUR LINEN
We advise a warm gentle machine wash. Do not bleach or soak. Do not dry-clean. As with all bedding and clothing, new linen should be washed before using for the first time. Regular use and laundering will only make the bedding softer, more supple and long lasting.
If line drying, hang close to the edges, like any sheets they will dry with a crease where they have bent over the line. This will disappear after one night sleeping in them.
If tumble drying, use a warm setting. Pull out promptly when finished and stretch out over the bed. Warm iron if desired.
Our 100% linen quilt covers feature an easy care tie closure, to keep your quilt insert in place and your bed looking elegant and relaxed. Our pure linen pillowcases feature an end opening to allow for pillow inserts to sit snugly inside and look great on your bed from both front and reverse.
Fitted sheets are a relatively new product to the market of bed linen. Due to the nature of their use being more frequent than other bedding, signs of wear appear earlier than on top sheets and duvet covers. As Major Minor linen at 165gsm* is thicker than most, this is not a flaw in the fabric, it is the normal result of consistent use and frequent machine washing. To make your linen sets last longer, we suggest purchasing more than one fitted sheet to alternate between use.
