There are plenty of natural fabrics on the market worthy of their place in your home, but flax linen fabric is by far the strongest and most durable, as well as carries many health benefits. Linen is 2 times stronger than cotton and 3 times stronger than wool, and absorbs up to 20% of its weight in water without feeling damp to the touch, and dries quickly. Another benefit of pure flax linen fabric is that natural linen fabrics are hypoallergenic and antiseptic: no harmful bacteria can breed in it. It does not form any lint, making it perfect for people suffering from asthma, allergies, sensitive skin or any other dermatological problems. Flax linen fabric does not disintegrate over time, it just becomes softer, so towels and washcloths can double as gentle, reusable exfoliant.
Clothing and bed linens made from flax fabric are light and breathable, perfect for both hot and cold weather as linen is great at maintaining body temperature. Moreover flax fabric reflects UV rays, which makes it more effective than other fabrics at protecting the skin from sun damage. Finally, linen is the ultimate low-maintenance fabric: it can be machine washed even in hot water, heat-treated, and even left out in the sun without fading.
