Today is officially the first day of spring whihc means it’s time to break out the Linen Sheets. Thankfully, I received a free set of linen sheets from Parachute Home to review. I have hear a lot abou their linens and was excited that they arrived in time. A queen linen sheet set retails for $169 which gives you a fitted sheet and two pillow cases. Note that you do not get a top sheets but can add one for an additional $90 to bring the total price to $268. The reason they do not include a top sheet is that they really aren’t needed and they make your bed harder to make. Instead, the idea is that you would just use a linen duvet cover.
I have reviewed the Parachute percale sheets about a year ago and they are still holding up nicely. I really like the self packaging in that you can reuse the bags the sheets come in to store toys or other trinkets. After you order your sheets they should arrvie in about a week.
Here’s a video of me uboxing the sheets.
Here are the construction details of the Parachute linen sheets according to their website.
- Garment dyed and washed in small batches, so color will be unique to each piece
- Made in Portugal, by the world’s best artisans
- Machine washable
- Continuous hem
- Accomodates mattresses up to 16 inches deep.
As advertised these sheets are very breathable and have that one of a kind linen feel. Linen is a thicker and more durable material than a typical cotton sheet. You can expect these sheets to last many years so they are a worthwhile investment.
Parachute does a wonderful job with packaging. The sheets will come in a cardboard box with the Parachute logo on it and then when you open the box you will find your linen sheets in a package like the one below.
You also get a nice welcome card like the one below. It’s a nice touch that includes care instructions.
The linen fabric is milled in the Guimarães region in northern Portugal. This area has a long history of making linens. In fact, they even have a linen parade, the Cortejo do Linho which is held in August.
