9 best linen bedding sets to keep you cool all summer

Summer is nearly here, which means warm days, long evenings… and sleepless nights. We’ve all known that dreadful feeling, in the peak of summer (or a mini British heatwave that could occur any time between the months of March to October, really) when you just can’t get cool enough to nod off.

If this sounds like you, did you know it might be your bedding causing the issue? Linen bedding is the best way to stay cool on warm nights – the loose weave of linen means it can wick away moisture quicker than polyester or cotton can, therefore maintaining airflow and regulating temperature (that means it will keep you warm in winter, too). Linen is also a sustainable choice of material: it comes from the flax plant, a renewable source that’s fully biodegradable.

Aesthetically speaking, linen’s natural appearance lends itself perfectly to current Scandi and rustic interior trends – it actually looks better un-ironed (rejoice!) – and it gets softer the more it’s washed. Linen bedding doesn’t have to mean a white-out, either – these days there are plenty of choices in every colour of the rainbow – and at all price points, too.

To help you find the perfect linen bedding set for you, we’ve found 9 of the best choices available right now. These stylish picks will keep you cool all night long, all summer long…
