Why Linen

Natural Fabrics for Natural Comfort


Here at ThisIsLinen we are passionate about natural fabrics and natural comfort.

We love linen because it is soft, cosy, feels divine to sleep on and looks beautiful. But it has even more to offer than that. 

Linen is one of the world's oldest fabrics and is very well suited to our modern world.


Linen Promotes Better Sleep

If you are looking for better sleep and complete comfort, whilst knowing that your bedlinen is natural, sustainable and good for you, linen is without a doubt the fabric for you.


Super Soft, Naturally

ThisIsLinen linen has been stonewashed to give the fabric a supersoft feeling. Our Linen is the softest we have felt, and we were very exacting about it because we love fabrics which feel divinely soft next to our skin.


Never too Hot, Never too Cold

Linen is a breathable fabric which regulates our body temperature. Linen is warm in winter and cool in summer. This exceptional quality means that you won't be too hot nor too cold whilst you sleep, leading to a better quality of sleep.


Feel Better, Function Better 

We all know how important a good nights sleep is for our health, including our mental health. By helping your body to maintain a steady temperature, linen will help you sleep better, and function and feel better.


A Very Sustainable Fabric 

Linen is made of flax, a highly renewable and earth-friendly crop. It is so eager to grow, it needs virtually no pesticides to grow, and little water. It will grow anywhere.

Flax traps a lot of carbon as it grows, is biodegradable and the whole of the plant is used when it is harvested. It is this hardiness and lack of waste which makes linen a real superstar amongst fabrics.


Hypoallergenic & Antimicrobial 

Linen naturally inhibits bacterial growth and is fully hypoallergenic, making it suitable for those prone to allergies and for everyone else, as hypoallergenic and antimicrobial bedlinen reduces the stress on the body as we sleep.  


Linen is easy to Care For 

Linen is a very strong fabric and when cared for will last a long time. It is one of the rare fabrics which becomes softer over time. In times gone past, people would leave their linen fabrics in their wills - a recognition of its high quality and its durability.
