Appreciated since Egyptian times, linen is one of the oldest fabrics in the world and is still used today for its incredible characteristics. Anyone who tries it can never go back. Here are 5 reasons why you should use linen:
Linen is a sustainable fibre, biodegradable and therefore completely recyclable. Unlike cotton, its cultivation does not involve the use of pesticides, protects the soil, requires only rainwater and absorbs more CO2.
Linen is an extremely strong and durable fabric. It does not deteriorate over time, even when subjected to repeated washing (max 40°) but rather increases its softness. The only thing that may change is its colour if dyed.
3. Fast drying
Linen is able to absorb moisture from the body and dry quickly, thus giving a sense of freshness to the person wearing it as clothing or improving the quality of sleep for those using it as bedding.
4. Insulating and thermoregulating
Linen has insulating and thermoregulating properties that make it optimal in all seasons. In summer it is cool and light, in winter it keeps the body at a constant temperature. It is also a breathable fibre that allows the skin to breathe and regenerate.
5 Hypoallergenic and antibacterial
Linen is a hypoallergenic and antibacterial fibre. It caresses the skin without irritating it, which is why it is suitable for even the most sensitive skin. It also does not attract dust, which is ideal for those who are allergic to it!
If reading these reasons is not enough, try sleeping under fresh linen sheets, we are sure you won't go back!
