7 reasons to wear / use linen
Linen is a popular choice for many wardrobes when the hot weather hits, and not for no reason. Not only is it durable and convenient, it is comfortable, environmentally friendly, and healthy, among other reasons. Here are 7 reasons to wear linen.
1. It's more durable and stronger than any other materials.
Linen hasn't been used since 8000 BC for nothing. Not only is it strong, it is proven to actually get stronger the more you wash it! Linen is actually stronger wet than dry, which is very rare among fabrics. Furthermore, the fibers never stretch and are not easily damaged by abrasion.
2. Linen is very convenient.
Following each wash, linen becomes not only softer, but it becomes more absorbent. It is very convenient to wash for these reasons, and because it gets stronger with each wash.
3. Linen is very comfortable.
Linen is lightweight and billowy, making it very comfortable and convenient in the summer heat. However, it can also be warm in the cooler months.
4. It is very environmentally friendly.
Linen is a natural fibre, making it environmentally friendly. Linen is also strong and able to survive in less than good soil without fertilizer, or with a minimal amount. The production process is not very water intensive, making a small water footprint in comparison to other fabrics. Linen fibers are also biodegradable. Most of the flax plant is useful, and the parts that aren't helpful in making linen are used in other products, especially in the health food industry.
5. Wearing linen is good for you!
Linen reduces inflammations, reduces fever, and even freshens the air! Someone wearing linen clothes even sweats 1.5 times less than a person wearing cotton and 2 times less than one wearing viscose clothes.
6. Linen is breathable.
The fibers allow airflow in your body, because they are hollow. They can gain up to 20% of their dry weight in moisture without even feeling wet. It helps to withdraw body heat.
7. Linen repels insects.
Linen actually repels insects. Although it is loose and breathable, it repels insects, like moths.
