Linen is a natural fiber, made from the stalk of a flax plant. It is regarded in Europe as the best quality fabric.
Linen is a very durable fibre and has many benefits over cotton.
– Linen is 30% stronger than cotton
– Has a high moisture absorbency
– Highly breathable
– Structurally sound fibre so products keep their shape
– Environmentally friendly – less water and chemicals to cultivate
The main benefit of wearing linen clothes in hot weather is the coolness they provide. Thanks to the weave and linen fiber specifics linen fabric allow more airflow and it’s structure means it stays away from your skin allowing better airflow over your body. Linen is a “stiff” fabric and is less likely to cling to the skin; when it billows away, it quickly dries out and becomes cool again.
All these properties allow linen to function well in hot and hot/humid conditions very well and significantly alleviate the effects of the heat and humidity on the wearer.
This means having linen clothes in your summer wardrobe is not only an idea – it’s a decision that will make you feel comfortable, confident, easy and pretty, too!
