We bought a full/queen duvet + cover from Parachute and their sizing/shape is quite odd—it is extremely long (feet hanging on the floor!) and barely covers both sides. The linen duvet cover itself is heavier than cotton (to be expected) but the quality isn’t good. It is rough and not the type of material I want near my face. The only redeeming part are the color options available.
I was watching parashoot sheets for some time, was getting to know more. I wasn't sure which ones to buy. They were very expansive, as soon as I saw 20% off I finally decided to get it. Based on others reviews I alredy liked it, but I was wrong. I slept the first night, it was very hot, crazy itchy and rought. Second night the same, third night.... I couldn't take it anymore, it was the worst bedding I ever had, I really wanted to like it. They were saying it should get softer after each washing, but I couldn't wait, plus it was so hot to sleep on it. It was linen, maybe cotton would of been better. But return was super easy, thair customer service is super!
Unlike linen sheets I’ve purchased elsewhere these have not gotten softer with washes but remain pretty scratchy and stiff.
Linen sheets are very rough. I will try once more to wash it as i heard it gets softer after every wash.
I was shocked at the rough texture of the linen sheets after hearing such good things about Parachute. I went to Pottery Barn for other errands and happened to feel their linen sheets which were MUCH softer. With that said, I do think the linen material is very durable so I returned the sheets and got the duvet cover instead. Ordered the percale sheets instead. Fingers crossed that they work!
I don’t doubt the high quality of these sheets, I just find the material scratchy and not as comfortable. Maybe I mis ordered. If you like soft sheets I wouldn’t recommend.
Maybe linen just isn't for me, but I'm regretting my linen bedding purchase. I've tried following all the various tips for how to care for linen, but honestly, it's just a huge hassle. This duvet always has MAJOR wrinkles. I don't just mean the normal soft wrinkly texture that linen has. I mean that I basically have to iron this king sized duvet cover every time I wash it (which is usually weekly); otherwise it's just a mess. I finally tried getting it professionally cleaned, which came out nice, but was expensive. It's now softening up a bit, but overall I find it rather scratchy.
I was really excited to try these linen sheets. I just ordered a top sheet to try and unfortunately its not soft and comfortable but rather rough. I was really disappointed . I washed it several times but not getting any softer…will keep trying…really wanted to love this sheet!
I really wanted these sheets to work. I read all the reviews and I have the opposite opinion when it comes to softness. I find them to be to scratchy to sleep on. The linen duvet cover I find to be fine with other sheets on the bed. But the entire linen set is not Soft enough for me to sleep comfortably and I regret buying the sheet set. They look beautiful and I really wanted it to work. I don’t like giving negative reviews but for people with sensitive skin I would skip the linen.
I’ve a had many linen sheets before. My first time washing these, they were completely ruined after washing. Unlike any of my previous sets, these were full of holes, along with the pillows.
