Foxtrot Home is a New Zealand business owned and operated by us, Kiwi sisters Kate & Prue. We started our small, boutique company when trying to source quality flax linen bedding for our own homes but were not able to afford the options offered in the NZ marketplace. We have put a lot of time and care into finding the right people to produce beautiful quality bedding at an accessible price for our customers and now we’re proud to offer you just that! 

Every one of our bedding items is made from 100% flax linen sourced from Normandy, Northern France. The climate and environment in France is well known as the best in the world for sustainably growing premium quality flax linen. Once harvested, the certified 165gsm French Flax Linen is baled and sent to China where it is then received by our chosen makers who are trusted with  weaving, dyeing and then sewing your beautiful bedlinen to our specifications, before sending it to us in Auckland. Your linen is 100% ethically made by a family-owned and operated business employing no more than 60 people and whose owners share the same personal and business values as we do. We know because we visit China every year (barring during COVID!) and we can proudly say we have observed every part of the manufacturing process.

Once in Prue’s safe hands in Auckland, 90% of Foxtrot Linen is sent out to you in compostable packaging from R3 Pack. Linen is packaged in either linen bags or recycled tissue paper.

Our makers are; 

Oeko-Tex® Certified

To attain Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification, the dyes have been tested and certified to be free from harmful levels of more than 100 substances known to be harmful to human health.

How do I wash and care for my Wool throw blanket?

Wool is naturally odour resistant due to the fibre’s unique properties which means they rarely need cleaning —just shake and air outdoors. For deeper cleaning, dry-cleaning is best.

Things to remember when caring for your wool blanket is:

  • Dry-clean only.
  • Do not bleach.
  • Do not machine wash.
  • To give your wool throw blanket some love it often just involves airing them out. Simply take them outside, shake it well, and hang it in a light breeze area to loosen any accumulated dust or dirt.
  • To dry wool blankets, it is best to lay them flat (without stretching) on clean towels.
  • If you need to store your wool throw blanket, keep it in a cool, dark location, stored in an airtight container or bag.


Do different colours have different textures?

Stripes and grid linen (all colours) Natural and Denim, are all more textured than the solid colours. The fabric is made in the same place as the rest of our linen but as they are two different yarns spun together to form a stripe, grid or melange, they result in a more textured feel. The Natural linen is more textured as it is not dyed like the other linen colours.

We find that machine drying them rather than line-drying results in a softer feel and they will soften more over time however, they will never end up the same as the solid colours as that weave will always have "texture".

What is stonewashed linen and how is it different?

While highly durable and long lasting, the ‘raw’ linen of old was also uncomfortable. It did, however, get softer with longtime wear — often decades after purchase.

Spinning newly woven linen in a machine with natural Pumice stone helps accelerate this wearing process. It leaves the linen with a buttery ‘sleep ready’ softness and a vintage style that would otherwise take many years to achieve. The drawback being that stone-washed linen is more delicate than raw linen; naturally it has a shorter lifespan. You can expect your fitted/bottom sheet (which receives the most "wear") to last 18 months or longer. This is the case for all linen stonewashed 165gsm bought in Australasia. Please read more about the longevity of your bottom sheet here.

Why do I need to rotate my sheets?

Stone washed linen is already at its maximum softness and therefore requires a little more love than traditional, raw linen. This is especially true of sheets that cover high-friction areas like fitted/bottom sheets. It’s important to rotate your bed linen between several sets to avoid wear and tear accruing on a single sheet. Not doing so may result in a shorter than usual life.

Why is linen more expensive than other bedding? 

Naturally, well-made pure flax bed linen is more expensive than cotton and synthetic bedding. Labour intensive, flax farming requires careful craftsmanship to ensure quality fibre, which being stiff, is difficult to weave during manufacturing. Combined with stone-washing, the cost of producing bed-ready flax linen is generally higher than other textiles.

We are proud to say that our linen does cost LESS to the environment. Made from 100% organic French flax, grown free from pesticides and at a third of the water consumption of cotton, Foxtrot linen is also delivered in compostable packaging.

    Does Linen fade? 

    Unfortunately linen does fade in the sun as it is a natural fibre. All natural fibres do this. To mitigate this risk, please ensure your linen is kept out of direct sunlight. 

    Product Information

    How do I wash and care for my linen?

    • Warm machine wash with plenty of water
    • Do not bleach or use stain removers such as Sard. No dry-cleaning. 
    • Warm tumble dry
    • Line dry in shade if possible
    • Try to avoid direct sunlight if possible as colours in linen do fade 
    • Linen always has wrinkles. If you want to iron, use a warm setting and press when slightly damp. 
    • It’s important to rotate your sheets (especially fitted/bottom sheets) between several sets to avoid wear and tear accruing on a single sheet. Not doing so may result in a shorter than usual life. Read more about this here
