COTTON is a Natural, cellulosic fibre made from the cotton boll (the round, fluffy clumps) which grows on a cotton plant. These are the most significant properties of 100% Cotton:
1 Absorbs water and “breathes”
2 Slow to dry.
3 Resists static electricity build-up.
4 Wrinkles easily.
5 Can withstand heat, detergents, and bleach
LINEN is a Natural, cellulosic fibre made from the stem of the flax plant, one of the oldest plants and oldest textiles in human history.
“We regard Linen as the best quality fabric because the stiffer yarn with natural slubs offer the finished garment a unique rich texture that adds dimension to any outfit.
The fabric itself is also more lustrous (brighter & slightly silky) and dyes very well. And it is famous for its antibacterial properties.”
Linen is highly absorbent and dries quickly wicking moisture away from your skin – offering exceptional breathability.
Constructed out of hollow fibres, linen acts as a natural insulator – keeping you cool in the summertime and warm in the dead of winter.
The strong flax fibres also make it extremely durable and more winter ready.
Linen softens the more it is used and washed and can last decades when cared for correctly.
