The Best Linen Bed Sheets In Australia, From Neutral Hues To Beachy Stripes

Time for a room refresh?

Chances are, if you don’t already own a set you’re definitely considering investing in some linen bed sheets. Where once we never veered from cotton when it came to breathable bedding, in the last few years flax linen has become a go-to for comfort.

It doesn’t hurt that the crushed material also makes for an aesthetically-pleasing finish.

We’ve rounded up our favourite linen bed sheet labels available in Australia, from boutique brands to household names.

Best Linen Bed Sheets To Shop In Australia


Bed Threads


Formed in 2014 by Sydney-based couple Alan Biller and Genevieve Rosen-Biller, Bed Threads began with a simple premise: 100% flax linen bedding with a price point that wouldn’t break the bank. These days, the label offers only the most stylish of hues across its bedding selection, but also features everything from tableware to sleepwear. You can visualise your new bed sheets via the site’s ‘Build Your Own Bundle’ tab, too, if you’re looking to colour co-ordinate.

I Love Linen

Love a good pattern when it comes to bed linen? This Australian label produces French linen bed sheets in a range of colours and patterns, including gingham and stripes. Founder Lauren Roe was inspired by a visit to France, envisioning the lush linen bedding she encountered in hotels in Australian homes.

Sheet Society

Sheet Society offer a range of bed sheet materials, from cotton to boucle and, of course, linen. We love that Sheet Society offers a wider range of unique shades not seen often from other brands. The lemony Butter hue, a more recent addition, is a favourite.



While Cultiver is known for its European flax linen bed sheets (cedar stripe, a blend of cream and burnt orange, is a favourite of ours), the brand also specialises in mulberry silk, waffle cotton – even denim towelling. They also offer free shipping and returns, in case you’re indecisive.

Montauk Style 


Inspired by dreamy weekends in a Hamptons beach house, Montauk’s soft muted tones are the perfect addition to any bedroom. Carefully constructed and sourced from the purest French flax, their coastal-inspired collection of linen sheets not only look luxurious but feel heavenly, too.



The classic bed linen label made its foray into linen bed sheets with its 100% Belgian flax collection, Abbotson. Featuring flat sheets, quilt covers and shams in a range of shades, what we love about the Sheridan collection is the bright hues on offer – not usually found in linen collections from other labels.

One of the first linen bed sheets labels in Australia, IN BED was founded in 2013 by stylist Pip Vassett, who endeavoured to create timeless linen that elevated creative spaces, including the bedroom. The label is also known for its coveted robes and sleepwear.



Adairs is known for their vintage washed linen range, available in classic neutral hues such and black, grey, and terracotta. However, they also have beautiful gingham and checkered options available—seamlessly adding visual interest to any bedroom (we’re eyeing the oversized grey check quilt).



Born in New Zealand, Ecodownunder started with a focus on pure cotton bed linen without synthetics involved. Now, the brand also offers natural flax linen bed sheets in an array of colours—and for those who love attention to detail, the wooden button finishes will seal the deal.

Carlotta + Gee


Born out of a love affair with high-quality linen bedding, Carlotta + Gee have quickly established themselves as a big name in the sleep game. The brand is all-natural, sustainable and Australian-made, which we absolutely love to see. One glance at their website and you’ll soon see why they’re so loved. Expertly tapping into all the on-trend colours and patterns you see on Instagram, it’s the refresh your room has been waiting for. 

Weft Textiles

With a vision for aesthetic excellence as well as ethical production practices, Weft Textiles offers a smaller range of shades and product, but has a laser-focus on sourcing 100% natural and organic fibres, as well as an Australian-made ethos. The brands flax linen bed sheets are of course a hero product, but we’re lusting after the pyjama jackets too (even outside the home).

What To Know About Getting Linen Bed Sheets

Are Linen Bed Sheets Good For You?

Linen sheets are strong, quick-drying, and extremely breathable. With temperature regulating properties, they will help to stop you getting too hot in summer or too cold in winter. Additionally, linen is a very robust natural fibre made to last the test of time. Investing in a great set of linen bed sheets will have you set up for years to come. As a natural fibre that requires less water than cotton to cultivate, it has a smaller environmental footprint too.

What Are The Disadvantages Of Linen Bed Sheets?

One of the main downsides of linen is that it wrinkles easily. Luckily, that has become the charm of linen bed sheets, which look a little rustic in their wrinkled form. Some find it scratchy at first, but most good quality linen sheets should be smooth from first use.

What Is The Difference Between Linen And Cotton Sheets?

Cotton is lightweight, soft and affordable, while linen is durable, breathable and more environmentally friendly. While cotton is good for bedding, linen sheets last longer and will help you from getting too sweaty overnight.

Can Linen Sheets Go In The Dryer?

It’s important to always check with your bedding manufacturer if your bedsheets are dryer safe. Many will recommend air drying your linen sheets but it is usually ok to put them in the dryer. Because air drying is more gentle than tumble drying, it will help increase the chance of your linen lasting longer.
