Fitted Sheets Made of Linen
Colourful Yarn. From Linen of European Provenance.
Hoffmann uses only linen yarns of European provenance so as to guarantee the quality and outstanding properties of linen: these sheets are made of European long fibre flax. The coloured yarns are dyed before weaving – a technique that is more complex and costly than fabric printing but one that guarantees greater colour intensity and fastness to light. The durable fabric has a somewhat crisp texture.
Bed Linen. Made of Pure Linen.
Before cotton arrived in Europe, bed linen was usually made of linen, as the name suggests. There were good reasons for this. Linen is antistatic by nature and tends not to attract dust. Thanks to its smooth texture, it feels comfortable against the skin and is easy to wash. Linen is a good conductor of heat and absorbs moisture without actually giving off a damp feeling. Besides, it releases the moisture quickly afterwards, which is why it is perceived as pleasantly cooling. We recommend linen fabrics in particular for the summer.
Terminus technicus: yarn count or yarn thickness.
The yarn count is a textile unit of length, we specify it in Nm (number metric), where the higher the number, the finer the yarn. A yarn unit of Nm 100 means that 100 meters of a yarn weigh 1 gram. An additional digit is added if the yarn is twisted from several single yarns, for example Nm 100/3 for a yarn made from three single yarns.
Another designation is also the yarn number, other measurements are tex, dtex or denier (den). Denier is a textile unit of weight that is now only found in fine pantyhose. It indicates how much 9,000 meters of a yarn weigh: At 15 den, 9,000 meters of the yarn in question weigh 15 grams. Far more common is now the international Tex system, where in each case the weight for 1,000 meters of a yarn are indicated.
Linen Made in Lusatia.
Upper Lusatia is today part of the German state of Saxony, except for a small part east of the Neisse River around Luban, which now belongs to the Polish Lower Silesian Voivodeship. The region is characterised by fertile soil, gently rolling hills and historic towns like Bautzen, Görlitz, Herrnhut, and Bad Muskau. The development of the linen industry in the 17th century helped the region to prosperity. The linen weaving mill Hoffmann in Neukirch in the rural district of Bautzen is one of a very few still active mills there today. With its long-standing experience and specific expertise, the firm has specialised in jacquard weaving and stitching. The current owners started the reprivatisation of the mill after the fall of the Berlin Wall. With lots of commitment, they and their team put old weaving machines into operation again to tie in with tradition – and the story of the Lusatian weaving continues.
