Made from highest quality flax yarns, this beautiful bed linen is made in Ireland by master weavers,Thomas Ferguson.
A Word About Thread Count
We are often asked about thread count, but this is largely irrelevant if you are comparing linen with cotton. By nature, linen has a lower thread count because the threads are thicker, heavier and more loosely woven.
As a matter of interest, our Superior quality Irish linen has 44 threads/sq.cm, (112 threads per sq.in.), weight is 160 gsm.
Despite linen's lower thread count when compared with cotton, Fegusons Irish linen is renowned for its strength. Under normal domestic use, Irish linen is more durable than even the best quality cotton.
In short, if you want soft shiny sheets, opt for best quality cotton with a high thread count and very close weave.
If, on the other hand, you love the characteristic weave and heavier weight of pure linen against the skin, then this luxury bedding collection is for you. Indeed, as every linen lover will tell you, the attraction to linen is intensely emotional. There's something special about linen's characteful weave and drape; its crisp coolness to the touch; its strength and luminosity.
The average retail prices elsewhere for exactly the same Irish linen items are considerably higher. Furthermore, we charge only £3.50 towards the cost of delivery, either by Royal Mail 1st class recorded delivery or by courier, no matter how large your order.
Only flat sheets are available in this pure linen collection. This enables the top and bottom sheets to be alternated, thus extending the life of your bed linen. Fitted sheets tend to wear out sooner due to the repetitive friction of lying on them.
Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery as all Irish linen sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers are made-to-order. Indeed, these special offers are exactly the same quality as the superior grade Irish linen sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers listed individually in the main Irish Linen Bedding section.
Customers in the Republic of Ireland - we offer the same £3.50 flat rate postage for made-to-order Irish linen bedding. Please contact us by phone or email. We can email you a Pay By Link payment request. This will enable you to make a card payment via a secure and encrypted webpage via our third party payment processor, Cardsave. Alternatively, we can accept card payments over the phone.
