linen and linen blends
Linen is another very ancient fibre - it has been found in ancient Egypt, and ancient parts of Europe. It is made of fibres from the flax plant. It is strong, absorbent and dries quickly. Garments of linen are valued for their coolness and freshness in hot humid weather. Blended with other fibres Linen has proved to a comfortable wearable fibre that can provide a crispness in a blended fibre yarn.
