Made from flax fibre, linen is one of the world’s oldest fabrics. Previous generations have always appreciated linen's unique qualities. The benefits of linen include its filtering, bacteria-resistant, ventilating, moisture-absorbing and evaporating capabilities. Linen bed sheets are anti-allergic and recommended for people with skin diseases, children and others prone to sensitivities from synthetic materials. So here we go with a few more perks:
Linen is environmentally friendly. The flax plant, used to make linen, is used in other ways: the seeds, for example, are pressed to make linseed oil, which is used in floor coverings, such as linoleum, and paint. Linen is a renewable resource that needs no irrigation. Linen is also fully biodegradable. Linen bedding is twice as durable as cotton bedding and can last the decades. Definitely a worthwhile investment!
