The flax fiber is very absorbent and garments made of linen are valued for their exceptional coolness and freshness in hot weather.
Linen fabric is made from the cellulose fibers that grow inside of the stalks of theflax plant, or Linum usitatissimum, one of the oldest cultivated plants in human history. Flax is an annual plant, which means it only lives for one growing season.

Linen is known to be the world’s strongest natural fiber. It is so durable it’s even used in paper money to increase strength! It is thicker than cotton and linen fiber has variable lengths, most of which are very long. This contributes to strength, which contributes to longevity. Linen lasts a very long time.

Natural fibers love water. Linen is thought of as natures wicking fabric. It can gain up to 20% moisture before it will first begin to feel damp. Cotton will absorb more than 25% its weight in water.

Additionally, linen is known to gain strength when wet. It has the natural ability to prevent bacterial development. For the making of towels, this is very important as hand and bath towels tend to be the perfect home for germs.
