Cotton or linen?
Most people sleep under cotton bed linen, in every home store these duvet covers are for sale. Who does not have a cotton duvet cover from Ikea or the Hema? And of course there is nothing wrong with that! Bedding of cotton is soft, inexpensive and available in many colors and designs. Cotton is also available in various qualities, organic cotton is also becoming increasingly popular!
Linen bedding is less common in the home stores. But it does start to gain more publicity and popularity. In every home magazine you will find bedroom inspiration with linen duvet covers, bedspreads and pillows.
Linen is made from a flax plant and cotton from the cotton plant. Linen is a light fabric, lint-free and can absorb more moisture than cotton without damaging the dust itself. That is a big advantage, especially for people who sweat a lot. Linen creases faster than cotton, but the wrinkles iron out, if you want, faster than cotton.
The washing instructions differ from each other, so you can wash cotton at a higher temperature, where you have to be careful at the first time that you do not wash it too hot because otherwise it shrinks. Do not hang cotton in the sun to dry because otherwise it loses its color faster. Linen on the other hand does not have to be washed at a high temperature. Maximum 40 to 60 degrees. If you were at too high a temperature, the fibers could break.
Linen is two to three times stronger than cotton, feels cool on summer and warm in winter. Due to the structure of the dust, mite does not thrive on linen.
Linen is the least environmentally harmful textile in the world. During the growth (100 days) the flax plant needs little water. The use of pesticides is not necessary. In addition, the entire plant is processed into linen, so there is no waste of materials. In comparison with cotton, hardly any chemicals are needed to produce the linen.
