Best Pedigree. European Linen.
Next to the Oberlausitz and Flanders one of the traditional textile regions of Europe is Hesse. For hundreds of years, the farmers in Hesse have cultivated, processed and spun the flax. Initially, the linen yarn was woven home-based on hand looms then more and more weaving mills took over. Only a few such mills have survived to the present day; one of them is Schlitzer Leinen-Industrie Driessen in Schlitz a small town in eastern Hesse. In addition to the weaving of linen Leinen-Industrie Driessen are also specialised in the production of fine half-linen and cotton fabric.
Fine Cambric. Feels Cool to the Touch.
The Schlitzer Leinen Industrie Driessen processes an extremely fine linen cambric for this bedding. The best European long fibre flax is spun into a fine thread and woven in a plain weave: from a yarn count of Nm 26 in the warp and Nm 33 in the weft accrues a dense weave, a fabric that it is very smooth with a soft feeling. The bedding made from this finely woven fabric is particularly lightweight and feels pleasant on the skin. Linen cambric is the perfect fabric for a summer bedding: linen absorbs moisture quickly and just as quickly returns it to the surrounding air, giving the fabric a cooling effect. And linen is insensitive, dirt repellent and durable.
A small detour: clothesline …
Once the bedding is completed, it undergoes no further processing and gets no additional finish. However, before it is cut to size, the linen fabric is put through a special prewashing which makes it softer and gives it a lively, voluminous surface. If you choose a short and gentle spin cycle for the fabric, then hang it up on the clothesline and then iron it, it will regain its smooth surface.
… or tumble dryer.
As a general rule, it is no problem to gently spin-dry linen fabric after the machine washing. Even to put the fabric into the tumble dryer is possible but the fabric might shrink a little bit more, and it gets difficult to smooth out the wrinkles. Let alone, for those who like it casual, machine drying is the right thing to do. When you put the wash in the tumble dryer, it has proved best to put in three to five tennis balls as well. That will soften and smooth out the bedclothes, but they won't be as smooth as they once were, even with some ironing or mangling.
