BestThe cold weather has come to a close, which means we can toss our double-layered comforters and flannel sheets into the back of the closet until November. It’s time to break out the linen, baby.
Don’t have linen sheets? Well, it’s time to reconsider. You change over your wardrobe when the season changes and that same consideration should be put into your bedding. You spend basically as much time in your sheets as you do in your clothing and they should accurately reflect the temperature outside. Giving your bed a spring makeover is like wearing a short-sleeve shirt outside for the first time; it changes how you feel about the fabric. Now you won’t have to worry about getting too hot with your overly bulky flannel or microfiber sheets made for colder weather.
