Linens

[lin-uhn]
Linens are fabric household goods, such as pillowcases and towels.

Originally, many, such as bed sheets and tablecloths, were made of linen. Today, the term "linen" has come to be applied to all related products even though most are made of cotton, various synthetic materials, or blends. These may be referred to as white goods (as high quality linen was bleached in the sun until it was pure white in color). Stores offering sales on these items may advertise a white sale, despite having a wide variety of actual colors of items for sale.
