The flax fibre, from which linen is made, is hollow and absorbs moisture well — it can absorb up to 20% of its own weight in water before starting to feel damp.
Besides absorbing moisture well, linen is able to release it fast. The flax plant is hollow, thus linen fabric dries out quickly and doesn’t stick to the body. Linen is also a natural insulator, so it keeps you cool in the summer and retains heat from your body in the cooler months.
Linen is hypoallergenic and is perfect for those who have a sensitive skin or suffer from allergies.
