Special qualities of linen:

  • Hypoallergenic
  • Anti-moth- you can pass on the fabric as an heirloom
  • Antiseptic – Linen has been used to cover wounds; resistant to bacteria and fungus
  • No lint – wipes glassware with no streak
  • Linen should be rolled when stored as it will memorize a crease
  • The tensile of linen fabric three times stronger than cotton; three times stronger than wool
  • Non-static
  • The more linen is washed, the softer it becomes.
  • Natural silica in flax fiber protects linen against rotting…that it why mummies that were wrapped in linen are still protected by their covering
  • Linen is 40 times more absorbent than cotton and dries faster.
  • It takes 1/5 the energy and water to cultivate and process flax into linen fabric.
