Linen is a lightweight and breathable fabric, used extensively in warmer climates. Linen fabric is traditionally made from flax, a finicky plant that requires a good deal of attention during its growth; for this reason (and because linen has no elasticity, making it more difficult to weave), linen tends to be more expensive than cotton. Linen is laborious manufactured.
Linen natural fabric has characteristics of absorbent, breathable, comfortable and durable. The garment made of linen is valued for exceptional coolness and freshness in hot weather.
Linen clothes are relatively easy to take care of and we recommend:
- Cold water washes which will prolong the life of clothes and preserves colour.
- Always wash colour garment separately in cold water.
- Avoid hot water to wash the clothes as the natural fibre has only moderate initial shrinkage.
- Wash all kinds of stains in cold water, leave it for days may affect the ability to properly clean the fabric. Never wash stain in hot water as it will be absorbed deeper in the fibre and make it hard to remove.
- Machine tumble drying should be avoided.
- Linen wrinkles and it is much easier to iron when it is damp. Do not iron at the same place repeatedly as linen fibres have a low elasticity and will break eventually.
- Most linen garment can be simply air dried on a good hanger and worn without the necessity of ironing.
Overall, the more you wash the linen clothes in the correct way, the softer and more comfortable it becomes. Enjoy wearing them and write to us if you have any questions about our linen products. Thank you and we’d love to hear from you.
