Go to Top

There are so many types of bedding out there to choose from – microfiber, flannel, sateen, Egyptian cotton, and bamboo – it can be downright confusing! Our editors want to make it easy for you by introducing you to a great alternative: linen sheets – known for their luxurious feel, they are slightly heavier than cotton and provide weight and sumptuous comfort while you sleep.

Compared to fabrics like cotton, linen sheets are expensive: we’re talking a median price of around $200. However, this price is commensurate with the quality and craftsmanship of the fabric, made from the natural fibers found in European-sourced flax plants, linen sheets have a longer life than cotton sheets. Here at IMBOLDN, we’re giving you the lowdown on a variety of linen sheet sets that impress us for both their quality and comfort.

Awarded “The Softest Linen Sheets of 2022” by the Sleep Foundation, Sijo’s French flax linen has a higher fabric density than most other brands, which lends it durability.
