Often thought of as a luxurious, linen clothing has a lot of health and other benefits as well.
Here are some of the benefits of linen clothing especially when it comes to children.
Since linen fibers are hollow they allow more airflow over your baby's skin than other materials.
Linen is highly absorbent, gaining up to 20% of its dry weight in moisture without feeling damp.
Linen allows air to flow and move around freely so that moisture is released very fast making it difficult for bacteria and microbes to breed or grow. This helps calm and settle the discomfort of allergies and supports the healing process of hypersensitive skin and eczema conditions.
Linen is considered to be one of the strongest of all natural fibers getting stronger and softer with every wash.
It's been dated back to 8,000 BC ancient Egypt where it was used as currency.
Linen is made from the stalks of flax plants, which are a resilient species that can grow in poor soils requiring very little fertilizer.
The linen production process is significantly less water intensive than that of cotton. Plus, with the demand for flax seeds and oils in the health industry, there is very little wastage of the plants.
And since it's a natural fiber it's biodegradable.
