Stonewashed Bedlinen

Horizontal stonewashed linen duvet in 'slate' with pillowcases in 'white', 'grey' and 'rosewood' Nothing beats the feeling (or quite honestly, look) of softly crumpled stonewashed bedlinen.  It makes you want to crawl under the covers and drift away on a blissful sleep in a way that tightly tucked in wrinkle free sateen sheets [...]
