Metis is the french union of linen and cotton usually in the blend of 65% linen and 35% cotton. Often called the workhorse of bedding because it is a very durable fabric that wears well and gets softer with washing.
Wash your sheet in a gentle soap detergent or wool mix. It can be tumble dried on a low heat setting. It also loves being hung out in the sunshine and the colour lightens with washing. If you want to have the sheet sitting beautifully in your cupboards then place your sheet on the bed and run a warm iron over it.
Linen is a wonderful environmentally friendly fabric, that is warm in winter and cool in summer.
