There was a couple of weeks wait for this linen sheet, as they are all made to order. It was well worth the wait, as the linen is beautifully soft, yet robust and strong. Not rough at all, like linen often feels on the skin. I actually ordered this as a throw for my sofa, as I find good linen is quite scratch-proof and doesn’t hole easily. Well, it stood the test, as our cat got his claws into it immediately and no damage!! I would recommend supporting this company, as few use really good quality fabrics such as this now. I imagine they can maintain this quality and standard of workmanship by not having to keep a lot of stock upfront, hence the wait. My preference is to be patient and purchase an item that will stand the test of time. Thank you very much - I’m delighted with my purchase and would definitely buy again.
