Next come the bed linen. If you want your bedroom to look like a luxurious hotel room, then you need to pick high quality bed linen. It may cost more but it’s worth it as it can last for decades!
How do you determine its quality? It depends on the quality of the fiber and the number of threads woven per inch. The higher the thread count, the softer and more durable. Choose thread count of at least 200. Pure linen is comfortable and cooling. Pure Linen comes from the plant Flax and its white color comes from the plant itself. Pure linen becomes stronger when it is wet. So that is no fear of damaging it during washing.
Nowadays pure linen may be mixed with cotton or other synthetic fiber like polyester so that it is crease free after drying. Cotton is also a firm favorite. It is extremely durable and has the best wear resistance among all fabrics. Repeated washings make cotton fabric even softer to the touch. Pure Linen is lighter than cotton and has better texture.
