Cool Sleepers Say: "I've never had linen sheets before but they are wonderful. It has been very hot lately so thought I would get these and try them out after all there must be a reason sheets are called linen instead of cotton. Well now I know, I don't think I will ever go back to cotton sheets, these are cool, dry, warm, and light all at the same time. They are soft, don't tangle me up like cotton, and don't make me sweat or feel damp like cotton can." – Scott, Amazon Reviewer

The first night I slept with my new linen sheets, I didn't have to do that one single time! These are miraculous. I stayed cool when the fevers hit and warm when the chills came (I suffer from frequent fevers and chills and am bedridden.). I'm forever grateful and thankful for something that may seem trivial to some, but for anyone who suffers from a similar issue, I highly recommend switching to linen sheets. I'm officially a convert. These will be my only Christmas/birthday wish, from now on. They have changed my life. Thank you so much Linoto!" – WL, Linoto Reviewer
