I received a set of limited edition linen sheets from Brooklinen and am really impressed with not only the feel but the great pattern which is perfect for your summer bedroom. I have previously reviewed the cotton sheets from Brooklinen which are great and their new linen sheets live up to the Brooklinen name.
Overview and Unboxing Brooklinen Linen Sheets
Brooklinen as a company has been around for over 5 years now and they have really taken the bedding world by storm. They were one of the first companies to have a distinct bedding brand that was born online. What makes them so enticing is their feel, price, look and customer service.
You can order their new linen sheets direct from their website. Your sheets should arrive in about a week after ordering.
As you can see they come in thier signature brown box.
They are wrapped in wrapping paper to stay clean and also make for a great pre-wrapped gift.
Here’s a video of me unboxing the linen sheets.
These linen sheets are made of Belgian and French flax and stonewashed in Portugal. Stonewashing is used to accelerate the softening process of the linen and give it more of a lived in feel, similar to what is done with most jeans. This means they are going to feel great right out of the box.
Here’s what you get with the Linen Hardcore Sheet Bundle which currently retails for $382.50:
- Includes a Flat Sheet, Fitted Sheet, Duvet Cover, and four Pillowcases
- Woven in Portugal with Belgian Flax
- Stonewashed for an immediately lived-in feel
- Oeko-Tex® certified to be free of harmful chemicals
- Fits mattresses up to 12″ depth
- King and Cal King Core Sets come with king pillowcases
- Duvet Cover Sets come with 1 duvet cover + 2 matching pillowcases
Below are the dimensions of the linen sheets:
|Product||Duvet Cover||Fitted Sheet||Flat Sheet||Pillowcases|
|Twin||64″ × 90″||39″ × 75″ × 15″||71″ × 98″||20″ × 27″|
|Twin XL||64″ × 90″||39″ × 80″ × 15″||71″ × 104″||20″ × 27″|
|Full||90″ × 90″||54″ × 75″ × 15″||86″ × 98″||20″ × 27″|
|Queen||90″ × 90″||60″ × 80″ × 15″||92″ × 104″||20″ × 27″|
|King||106″ × 90″||78″ × 80″ × 15″||110″ × 104″||20″ × 37″|
|Cal King||106″ × 90″||72″ × 84″ × 15″||110″ × 104″||20″ × 37″|
My Brooklinen Linen Sheets Findings
I found these sheets to be light and airy. As you can see from the picture below, linens have a very loose weave which gives you great breathability.
Here’s another picture of the duvet cover where you can see the buttons at the bottom.
Below is a picture of the top sheet. Linens aren’t supposed to look or feel crisp. They look and feel relaxed. That’s what makes them so perfect for summer. No need to iron them just toss them on your bed out of the dryer and you’re ready to go.
My Brooklinen Linen Recommendation
There are all sorts of linen sheets you can choose from. Pottery Barn is known for its linen sheets but when you do the math, Brooklinen still comes out ahead. As of this writing, I found a Pottery Barn queen-size linen sheet set retailing for $174. You get a fitted sheet a flat sheet and two pillowcases. Their queen-size linen duvet cover is selling for $249. Together this adds up to $423.
Compare that to the Brooklinen Bundle where you can get a King size bundle that includes 2 extra pillowcases for $382.
With Brooklinen you also get a 60 night free trial period where if you don’t like them you can return them. Washed or used linens will be subject to a $9.99 processing fee.
Although other companies like Pottery Barn and The Company Store sell linen sheets. They just don’t offer some of the syles that Brooklinen has. These sheets will appeal to both men and women. They don’t have overly intricate patterns but also hold some interest to make your bedroom inviting and modern looking.
