Linen fibres are extracted from the stalks of the flax plant, which may be grown either for its fibres or for its seed. Flax is an annual plant; it must be re-seeded every year. Linen fabrics are very useful for summer dresses because it feels very fresh and cool on the skin. Because of the smooth surface of the fibres and the good moisture absorption it is very skin-friendly. With 2 % stretch, linen has the lowest elasticity of all clothing fibres.
Available at Fabric House in pure linen, mixed (linen blends) with natural or synthetic fibres!
