Sarah Riccio: Hey guys, it’s Sarah from Sleepopolis. Today we’ll be taking a look at the WoodroseLinen Sheet Set from MagicLinen. Now, some of you might already know that linenhas a very distinct feel and a reputation for being super durable, breathable, and eco-friendly. In this review we’re going to take a closeexamination of these sheets so we can determine what sets them apart, and for whom they mightbe most beneficial. Of course, if at the end of this video you’renot so sure this set is the right one for you, just google “Sleepopolis Best Sheets,”and we’ll help you find the one that is. All right, let’s get started. [music] Sarah: These sheets are made from 100 percentlinen, which is derived from natural flax fibers, so eco-friendly, sustainably-sourcedmaterial. That’s a perk for me. This particular set is made in Lithuania. Unlike some linen sheets, these are not blendedwith cotton or any other textile byproduct. They have that distinct feel that only comesfrom pure, 100 percent linen.Linen fibers are a bit thicker than say cotton,for example, and they produce a stiffer yarn. They are going to have this coarse texture. Not coarse in a way that’s it’s rough, it’sstill super soft. It does have a distinct feel, a gently massagingtexture to it that is with 100 percent linen sheets. This particular set is in Woodrose, whichis, you can see, as the company calls it, a dusty pink color. I think it’s really pretty, but they do haveother styles and colors available. What are you getting with this set? You get a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, andtwo pillowcases. Something interesting about the fitted sheetis you can order it in two different mattress depth options. You can order it, either the fitted sheetis able to accommodate mattresses up to 10 inches, or up to 18 inches. 18 inches are pretty deep pockets so that’spretty cool. On this bed I’ve got the 10-inch fitted sheet. It’s got a really, as you can see, very tight,closely adhering to the mattress, snug fit, which I really like. While this does have a little bit of a coarsertexture, linen is also known for being super breathable.It’s very light and airy. You can see how it drapes. Also, this particular set is stone washed. I go into a little bit deeper detail as faras what the stone washing process is all about in my full written review, which you can findon sleepopolis.com. Basically stone washing is going to make themextra soft. While you’re getting all the benefits of linen,and you’re still getting that distinct coarser texture of linen, it is a little bit softerthan I was expecting. I really like that. First impression of these sheets, I’m lovingthe lived-in look that is so characteristic of linen. I’m loving the pillowcases also, which havethis pretty sizeable flap of fabric here, so you can’t see inside of the pillowcase. I have to say, I’m really into the hand feel,but I’m eager to see what they feel like. Let’s get in and check it out. The first thing I want to make a note of beforeI even get into the feel of these sheets is the pillowcase.When I first unpackaged everything, the pillowcaseslooked almost a little small. I’m used to seeing these big enormous piecesof fabric so it can accommodate any size pillow. These are a little small. At first I was worried about that, but asyou can see, it allows for a very snug fit around your pillow so that your pillow’s compactlyin the pillow case. Not to mention, it’s got this pretty big flapof fabric, so that you can’t see it. It’s still got that nice aesthetic look. I wasn’t sure how I was going to love thesesheets, because linen does have a coarser texture to it, but the stone washing involvedin making these sheets has them feeling so super soft. I can’t stop rubbing my hands all over thefabric. Of course, as we know, linen is super breathable,although it is a thicker fiber than cotton, for example.It’s still got this lightweight, drapes nicelyover your body, and is really breathable, so it’s going to help keep you cool. But, one of the magic things about linen is,it’s thermoregulating. Basically, that’s a fancy word that meansit’s going to help keep you cool in the summertime, it’s going to help keep you warm in the coolermonths. Works with your body’s temperature, and inmy opinion is a big perk.I am pretty much a year-round hot sleeper,so again, I am loving how light, cool, and breathable these are feeling. As far as the fitted sheet goes, I’ve gotthe 10-inch depth here. I think it’s doing a really good job of stayingtucked. Also, because there wasn’t a lot of excessfabric, it’s got a pretty snug fit. There’s no bunching, no gapping. It fits this mattress like a glove, and itis a 10-inch-deep mattress, so I’m liking that. As I roll around from side to side, the fittedsheet is not becoming untucked, which is one of my main criteria when it comes to sheets. The other thing that I pay attention to ishow it feels on my body. I know that they are natural, 100 percentlinen, so I know they are going to be hypoallergenic.They’re easy on my sensitive skin. They’re super soft. I love how when you air them out a littlebit, they get this nice drape. The last thing that I love about these sheetsis the lived-in aesthetic that is characteristic of linen. It’s got this wrinkly, beach-house feel toit, which is really nice. When it comes to linen sheets, you have toplay around because they’re definitely not all made equal. Between the stone washing and the pretty Woodrosecolor of these, I’ve got to say, I’m really loving these sheets. There’s a lot to like about these sheets,but just to name a few, they’re made from 100 percent pure linen, so they’re going tobe naturally hypoallergenic and sustainably sourced. They’re also highly breathable and moisturewicking, so they’re going to be less likely to accumulate germs. If you’re looking for sheets that are easyon both your skin and the environment, you should give these a try. Something I’m loving about these sheets isthe stone-washed softness that’s going on.I have to be honest, I don’t always love thefeel of linen sheets because they do have a coarser texture than cotton, for example. Because of the stone-washed nature of thesesheets, they’re actually softer than I was expecting. They’ve still got that distinct feel of linen,plus all the benefits that come with linen, but they might be a little bit softer thanyou’d expect. Something really awesome about the companyMagicLinen is that they offer customized bedding. In addition to being able to choose betweenmattress depth options — the fitted sheet comes in two different depth options — youalso have the option to customize almost every sheet set that they have to offer. You can customize the sheets according toyour preferred dimensions. That adds a level of personal care that Ireally like. There are a few things about these sheetsthat not everyone is going to love. A lot comes down to personal preference, butnot everyone is going to be into the casually creased, lived-in look of these sheets. It’s definitely part of the personality oflinen.Personally I think it adds a relaxed rusticaesthetic that I find to be quite charming, but again, different strokes for differentfolks, so something to be aware of. Secondly, it’s worth remembering that whilethese sheets are very soft, they do not feel like cotton. Really soft, but they offer a textured softnessthat’s less silky and smooth, like you might be familiar with with cotton, and more coarseand breathable. If you’re used to the cozy cotton sheets,it’s definitely something to keep in mind. Lastly, there is no trial period offered withthese sheets. You have to be pretty sure these are the onesyou want before you commit to buying them.Oftentimes, companies will offer a trial periodso you can get the sense of the bedding before you commit. It’s not the case with these sheets. However, I’m pleased to report that MagicLinenhas said that they are considering offering a trial period in the future.
