Linen fabric is woven from the fibres of the flax plant, a crop grown predominantly in Western Europe. Belgian and French flax linen is of the finest quality and this is where CULTIVER flax originates.
Airy and soft, pure linen feels cool to touch. It has a high propensity to absorb moisture without feeling wet. This makes it a very comfortable fabric for sleeping in whether you tend to be a “hot” or “cold” sleeper.
Linen becomes softer the more it is washed – stone washing during the manufacture process accelerates this effect. As part of the manufacturing process, CULTIVER sheets are put through a wash cycle with stones and natural enzymes to soften it. This also serves to pre-shrink the bedding.
As it becomes softer, pure linen fabric holds creases less, and attains a silky yet substantial feel and beautiful drape. The weightiness and softness is luxurious but not stuffy or stifling. Most people find linen to be the most comfortable fabric they have ever slept in – more breathable than even ultra high thread count cotton.
