Gosh, I can’t believe it’s July already! The year is already half over, and it’s really feeling like summer here in SoCal. I have a hard time sleeping at night when it’s this warm, so we sleep with the fans on full blast with only a sheet, and I STILL don’t sleep. I probably shouldn’t complain too much…after all, summer in California is much nicer than most other areas of the US. But while I absolutely love summertime, it sucks for my sleep…
So what’s more summery than linen? Linen is a great lightweight fabric that actually makes for really lovely bedding, so today I’m sharing 3 reasons to love linen bedding. Linen is somewhat underrated, so let me prove that you should give linen a chance.
Linen is used in fancy hotels, proving just how luxurious it can be! It’s very light and has a massaging effect on your skin. Win, win. Who doesn’t love a light exfoliant that basically does all of the work for you?
2. It keeps you cool
As I just said, linen is great for summertime when you’re feeling hot at night. It’s a lightweight, breathable fabric that helps keep you cool while you sleep. Linen can absorb up to 20% of its weight in moisture before it actually feels wet, contributing to how light and cooling it feels because it doesn’t hold moisture like cotton or other fabrics.
Linen is a great investment because it lasts significantly longer than cotton or similar fabrics. Even after multiple washes, it remains highly durable. It actually gets softer with every wash!
Designed here in Los Angeles, Parachute is launching their new White Linen bedding today to be available as sets and as separates. You should all go check out the details on the Parachute website! Most importantly, Parachute has paired up with the charity organization Nothing But Nets, an organization that provides mosquito bed nets to families in Africa to prevent Malaria, to provide a life-saving bed net for every purchase of Venice bedding sets (available in White Linen). I hope you’ll check them out!
