Linen Sheets

Anyone know of a source for good quality Airstream-mattress-sized sheets made of actual linen? We've grown to love our linen sheets at home, both for how cool and comfortable they are and for how quickly they dry after being washed, and would like to have the same on the road, but our preferred linen vendor (Linoto) doesn't offer the needed size. (In our case, for a FC 27FBQ.)

I use sheet tensioners or whatever they are called. They look like suspenders. They work well on our twin mattresses, might be a pain with the queen though.

Huh – not something I had heard of before. I assume you mean to be able to use sheets that are too large for the mattress? I suspect you're right, that it could be a bit of an ongoing wrestling match to use those with a queen-sized setup.

Use this on my queen fitted sheet works great.

Back in the day, way back there, all sheets were flat. We learned to wrap the bottom sheet around the mattress so it would stay put. Far fewer wrinkles in the sheet than what we have today with so-called fitted sheets. While I'll admit to using fitted sheets in the house, all the sheets in my Airstream are flat. They're easier to store and fit the beds far better.

After struggling with our twin sheets for years, my wife found the perfect solution. She used to use the "suspenders" and I would have to help her flip the mattresses to access the backs to get the suspenders on. It took over an hour to change the two sheets.


No more! Enter QuickZip sheets! You zip the top sheet off and zip a new top sheet on! Very easy and simple.

Here is the link:

The sheets on their site appear to all be cotton – did you get linen sheets from them?

These also appear to be only cotton. We're trying to find linen sheets.
