Make the switch to Linen sheets for summer

Do linen sheets keep you cool in the summer?

You’ve done all the hard work, you’ve decorated your bedroom to the exact specifications that you wanted, but now that we are hitting summer, you’ve realised that those super soft cotton sheets are slightly too cozy for the warmer nights. This is where linen sheets come into play. 

As a fabric Linen has the best temperature regulating qualities, keeping you nice and cool during the warm months and actually lovely and toasty during the colder months, so whether you sleep hot or cold, Linen sheets have actually got you covered (see what I did there? 

It’s not unheard of to change your bedding materials and styles to suit different seasons. Just like you have a winter and summer wardrobe, if you think about it, it actually makes complete sense. 

Your room can start to feel a little stagnant if you keep the same design in there for too long, so swapping accessories in and out is a great way to freshen up your decor.

Changing the bedsheets is one of the easiest ways to freshen up your room, afterall your bed is the biggest piece of furniture in your room, so just by changing the sheets you can make a drastic difference.

Get ready for a great, refreshing night’s sleep in linen. 

A guide to buying Linen sheets

When looking into purchasing bed sheets, your focus is on the weave and the material. When it comes to Linen bed sheets you are looking more at the material. 

Linen is quite far from the more common choice of cotton as it is created using fibres of the flax seed. 

There are many beneficial properties to the flax seed including it being highly sustainable crop. Flax seed uses far less water and pesticides to grow than cotton and it’s completely vegan, plus if its left completely undied it’s 100% biodegradable. So you can see why flaxseed is fast becoming the preferred choice for creating fabrics these days.

The weave in linen sheets allows for more airflow, which ultimately will keep you cooler than other fabrics, as it is breathable. So if you have allergies or sensitive skin, then the soft fibres of linen sheets will be the only thing you want touching your skin. When you move around in your sleep, these ultra soft fibres will cause less friction on your skin, giving you a peaceful night.


If I have won you round on purchasing Linen sheets then let me tell you about Piglet in Bed. 

You should make sure to buy your linen sheets from a reputable shop to make sure you are getting the real deal and 100% natural flax linen.

The best places Linen sheets come from are from a temperature climate and optimal soil. By having these properties it will create linen with long staple fibres. This will ensure that the threads never poke out and will give you that softer feel to touch. The shorter the fibres, the poorer quality of linen you will have. It’s noticeable. They will feel itchy and fall apart.



Piglet in Bed is the best place to purchase your new linen sheets, and well, linen everything!

It all started in a garden shed with a hope and prayer that other people were also looking for high quality, basic necessities for their home and lifestyle.

There are a wide range of colours and patterns to choose from, so let’s take a look at some of my favourites.

Our Favourite 'Piglet in bed' bed sheets

The Classic White Linen has to be a staple if you are not sure on what you are looking for.

White Basic Bundle has everything you need to kit out your bed. 2 Pillow cases, duvet cover and fitted bottom sheet are all in the price tag. It arrives to you pre washed for softness and to ensure that there is never any shrinkage and or fade after purchase.


Another in the Basic Bundle is the Sage green.

I think this colour is just gorgeous for the spring and summer seasons.

Imagine you have this colour on your bed, with elderflowers in a vase next to your bedside light. How peaceful and one with nature does that sound?


The Oatmeal stripe duvet cover is so cute. Oatmeal for a name is adorable. And it is the colour of oat too, not beige, not cream. Just beautiful. I am in love with the sublet stripe that features on the design in a slightly darker colouring.

There is also a different coloring if oat is just not for you, but you like the design.

Take a look at The Midnight StripeIn white and navy blue these stylish stripes are sure to fit  in bedroom style, modern or classic, minimalist  or boho. 

The stripes have a very classic bedtime feel emulating victorian style pyjamas so they give an element of homely comfort.


The Luna Stripe is the ultimate go to bedding if you are trying to achieve that Japandi bedroom. Its spaced wide apart, thin stripe repeat is exactly what you need to break up all the pale colours, while still having all the pale colours.

It will blend harmoniously with your walls but will still be noticeable because of the stripe. It’s just so perfect.


If you are wanting to make a statement with your bedding, such as it will be the focal point of your room. So you are wanting quite a strong colour. Then the Burnt Orange Bundle is exactly what you need. This set comes with the Orange Duvet Cover, Two Orange Pillow cases, Two White Pillow Cases, White Fitted sheet and White Flat sheet.  It’s the ultimate, most luxurious bedding set.


Why are linen sheets better?

There are so many benefits of purchasing Linen sheets. They will increase the airflow and optimal moisture-wicking allowing you to have that cooler night of sleep you are desperately looking for.

But also a warmer night’s sleep in the winter. They are the ultimate bedding necessity. And worthy of spending some money on.

And, bonus,  you will never have to worry about ironing your bedding ever again! The crinkled nature of linen is such a desired texture. I think it would be criminal to remove them.
