Testimonial:

This is an un-edited message received from one of our clients: "Dear Francis, I can’t express how much I love my new sheets so beautifully made by you in Ireland. I should be writing you a long letter but we leave for Europe tomorrow and time has defeated me. Still I want to thank you as best I can for now. I know I’ll have them and love them forever. Thank you so much. Sincerely, JS." - Brisbane, Australia. November 2017

Traditional Irish linen flat sheets are the preferred bedding of
 The Sultan of Brunei, the Imperial Court of Japan 
and Buckingham Palace. They are the epitome of luxury and good taste familiar to the cognoscenti and aristocracy for centuries. Although linen is manufactured in other parts of the world, the fineness of the woven cloth that is still achievable by Irish weavers today make this fabric exceptional. These skills have been handed down from generation to generation and learned over many hundreds of years.

A characteristic most often associated with linen cloth is the presence of "slubs" or small knots that occur randomly along the weave. These are in fact defects associated with low quality. The finest linen cloth has a very consistent yarn diameter with minimal slub.

We currently offer two grades of linen bedding, Woof 1 - Fine and Woof 2 - Finer, which refers to the degree of delicacy in feel, finish and caress. Weaving at these levels of excellence requires the exceptional skill and and highest quality craftsmanship found in Ireland. It is the reason why this unparalleled, noble and luxurious fabric is loved by the truly discerning.

This finely and evenly woven linen bedding is tensile strong and durable. It increases in strength when wet, allowing it to stand up to repeated laundering even at boil temperatures. While luxury cotton bedding usually lasts about three years before looking tired, showing signs of wear and needing to be replaced at expense, our Irish linen is only starting to blossom. It gets softer with each laundering, becomes gossamer silky smooth to the touch and can be passed on to the younger generations as an heirloom. A wise and genteel investment.

Flat sheets are sold in pairs and are finished with a generous traditional hemstitch finish, in optical white. We offer both European and North American sizing. Worldwide demand for our bedding is high and your order is bespoke. Please allow 4-6 weeks. Complimentary shipping.
