Fitted sheet linen batiste
Fine batiste. Cooling linen.
These fitted sheets are made by Schlitzer Leinen-Industrie Driessen from a fine linen batiste - matching the bedding of the same name. Best European long fiber flax is spun into fine yarn and woven in a dense plain weave. This creates a dense, even weave, the fabric is very smooth and has a soft feel. Linen is particularly suitable as bed linen in summer, as it can absorb moisture quickly and release it again just as quickly, thus having a cooling effect. In addition, linen is insensitive, stain-resistant and durable.
The fitted sheets made of the fine linen batiste are not further finished, only before processing the linen fabric is subjected to a special prewash, which softens the linen and gives it a lively, voluminous surface. If you spin the fitted sheets after washing only briefly, hang to dry and then iron, the sheets will regain their smooth surface.
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.
Excursus: dryer or line
Generally, linen bedding may be spun after washing and put in the dryer, but it can then shrink even more, especially it is more difficult to smooth and also does not get back the perfect smooth surface afterwards. But for those who like it more casual, it is the right thing to do. So if you want to put the laundry in the dryer, it has proven useful to put three to five tennis balls in the drum with it. This makes the bed linen softer and smoother - but it won't be as smooth as before, not even by ironing or mangling.
More gentle (and also energy-saving) is drying on the clothesline. Spin the covers after washing only briefly on, if you iron the best still slightly damp laundry after drying, it gets back the smooth surface.
