Our hems are sewn with at least 12 stitches per inch to make sure your linen lasts as long as possible. The 1” wide bottom hems and 3” wide top hems on our sheets and Oxford pillowcases ensure a rich finish and allow for easy ironing.
Classic linens are finished with cord stitching which is sewn with 28 stitches per inch. In the days when all linens were bleached white, differing numbers of rows of cord stitching where applied to help identify the various grades of sheets. Reed Family Linen continue this tradition today with extra rows of cording for higher thread count cloths.
Overlocking with safety stitching
All our duvet covers and standard pillowcases are finished with a double overlock and safety stitch to make them last for a lifetime.
Our Oxford pillowcases are sewn with traditional mitred corners throughout. Their construction requires the assembly of three separate pieces of fabric and skillful sewing. The end result is a flange which supports itself at the corners when placed on the bed.
Reed Family Linen duvet covers are sewn with a reinforced shoulder on each side of the bottom opening to prevent tearing during laundering and bed making. Our blanket covers are finished with double sewn hems which ensure long lasting use.
