Today the world is again experiencing a boom in the linen. It is not only the fashion for all natural: cotton, too, a natural material, however, health is not so useful. Flax - a great antiseptic, it suppresses harmful microflora, relieves itching, burning, and other inflammatory conditions.
Linen yarn in the gap is almost 2 times stronger than cotton and 3 times stronger than wool.
Linen is hygroscopic — not only absorbs moisture, but it also "removes heat", providing a great feeling, especially in hot and humid climate. The water evaporates from it at almost the same speed as the surface, resulting in the linen always fresh and cool. Linen does not cause allergies and retards the development of bacteria. The silica contained in the linen, protects against decay.
Bed linen, scientists say, reduces the impact of unfavorable environment, does not accumulate static electricity, and therefore longer stays clean, does not stick to the body and not break the folds. Flax warms in winter, and hot summer nights creates a feeling of coolness, removing excess heat from the skin: under linen sheets it seems that the temperature dropped 4-5grad.. Unlike cotton sets, which will eventually turn yellow, linen farther, the whiter!
