Linen can be washed at high temperatures with very little shrinkage and does not pile. Naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and hypo allergenic, It can absorb up to 20% of moisture before feeling damp.
Linen does crease as the fibres do not have elasticity, therefore can wear out quicker if folded in the same area repeatedly.
Naturally a more eco-friendly fabric which scores high on the ecological chart. It is completely recyclable and biodegradable. Due to its high absorbency does not need to be dyed as much as cotton. Flax is a strong plant that grows best in northern Europe that require very little if any fertiliser or pesticides and can grow well in poor quality soil. Every part of the plant can be used for other purposes such as paper, cattle feed, linseed oil, etc… which creates less waste.
