10 October 2011: I like that the finer white (new) is much softer to start with and has a smoother feel, but I felt that once the original is broken in it has a bit more cush. But we’re open to feedback about this and could use the finer white next time if this is prefered.
16 October 2011: Well in the end we’ve managed to acheive the best of both worlds (I hope!) the white linen we’re working with now is fine and soft yet also every so slightly heavier to give that little bit more cush on your shoulders. I think both previous lots of linen are lovely in their own right though and the difference is probably minimal, we just like to take care of these small touches!
