Jag hittade en bra artikel på nätet om varför man ska helst bädda med linnelakan. Det roligaste argumentet är dock på engelska – The term ‘linen’ has even become a generic term for all the fabrics used to make bedding linen – even synthetics like polyester.
8+1 benefits of pure linen bed linen:
First: Linen bedding boasts a light massaging effect because of the tiny breaks, specific to the linen fabric.
Second: It is antibacterial – has the ability to suppress bacteria, micro flora, and fungi. It is also not known to cause allergies.
Third: Relatively rough fabric surface stimulates blood flow and promotes relaxation.
Fourth: Linen is a breathable fabric – warm in the winter and insulating and cool in the summer (no more sweaty summer nights!).
Fifth: Linen bed sheets are highly absorbent – absorbs superfluous moisture.
Sixth: Linen fabric is stronger than cotton.
Seventh: It is durable – can last up to 20 years (isn‘t it an investment?).
Eighth: Linen fabric is environmentally friendly – all the flax used to make the fabric is used in other ways (e.g. seeds are pressed to make linseed oil which is used to make paint etc). Linen is fully biodegradable. It is also a renewable resource and needs no irrigation.
Ninth: One more reason to love linen bedding is this incomparable feeling of luxury and quality rest when you lay your body between pure linen sheets. And this is indescribable – one must feel this by him/herself.
