For just over one year, I have slept every night on vintage French linen sheets, and for me, it has been the sweetest sleep year of my life.
In the summer heat (my house does not have a/c), linen sheets keep me far cooler than cotton sheets ever were able to do, and in the winter, they keep in the warmth magnificently.
With each wash, linen sheets do become more and more lovely, and as I shared last year when sharing the history of linen and how it is made after having seen the flax fields in Normandy France (be sure to check out this post as well for details of where to find vintage French linens, cost, etc.), it is best to line dry, and wash them on the gentle cycle in your washer.
A bit of insight I have learned from this past year is that there is no need to iron them except for the monogram piece you see above that is folded over the coverlet or duvet. What a time saver that was for me to realize.
Understandably, we are not all going to be able to find, afford and sleep on vintage French or Belgium linen sheets. I too realized how fortunate I was last year finding the sheets I did at the price I did because as I saw at Les Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen, the price for a well-cared for linen sheet is closer to 100 Euros (I paid 300-40 Euros last year, but the quality was not the same, close, but not quite).
And that is where Parachute Linen Sheets comes into the conversation. Granted, this is not a French company, but Parachute does source their linen from Europe from responsibility manufactured companies and craftspersons (not necessarily from France as I still cannot find which specific countries they source from – if you know, I am all ears). Parachute was founded in 2014 in Venice, California, with the purpose of bringing both comfort high quality and premium, accessible essentials, and they continue to be one of the highest rated linen bedding companies in the mid-price range.
As such, for the Grand and Final Giveaway of TSLL’s 4th Annual French Week, one lucky TSLL reader will be welcoming one of Parachute’s 3-piece Linen Sheet Sets into their homes to enjoy.
One difference between vintage and new linen that I do love is that there are now fitted sheets available, whereas vintage sheets are all flat sheets. As well, the three-piece sheet set does not include a flat sheet as most European beds simply use a coverlet as the top sheet. I actually use a top and a bottom sheet and a coverlet on top of the top sheet as you can see in my images. If the winner would like the extra top sheet, that will be up to them to decide and purchase, but TSLL will be giving away the fitted sheet (choose your size) and two standard pillowcases as see in the images below.
Linen 3-Piece Sheet Set (many color options)

This would be the perfect time for a set of “French linen” sheets for my queen size bed. After downsizing 3 years ago, I am finally able to switch out my large cherry bedroom set for furniture better suited to our home. After much soul searching and redoing I’ve realized that my style is country French, a perfect mix of traditional furnishings and the more relaxed feel of a country home. Off white sheets would look wonderful with our the distressed pieces we’ve chosen for the bedroom.
Full size and in white. Hard to choose, as they are indeed very beautiful colours.

How beautiful! Would love to win a queen size set in white!
Always wanted to try linen sheets! Fog or grey would go great with my purple bedroom. Fingers crossed!
I am a long time linen lover, wear it almost exclusively year round. However I have never been able to afford good linen sheets(for my queen size bed), sadly. I tried some from Target, but they were scratchy and uncomfortable. I would take just about any color. I tend to especially love aqua or white, but the blush color in the Parachute line is my favorite. Nice to read your linen love!
Would love to try out King or Queen size linen sheets in cream or white! Thank you!
You are so insightful and we just love the site so much! I am familiar with Parachute, I once ordered a percale set, but have never experienced linen sheets.. Really hope this will give us that chance! 🙂 I would LOOVE to experience it on my Queen in color Shore! It just states their linen is crafted in Portugal from the finest European Flax. Thank you for all you do! -Jordan
So beautiful! We love making our room feel like a hotel room so that it is a true sanctuary. We have a queen size bed and fog would look beautiful! 🙂
Love your blog! Can’t think of a better way to sleep but on beautiful white linen sheets. I can imagine sleeping in on a lazy Sunday morning with my Cavalier King Charles and Portuguese Water Dogs. Queen size, white please.
