Advantages of Linen

  • Linen has always had a natural feel to it, and unlike cotton, linen has a longer lifespan and strength, making for more attractive fabrics.


    Linen is woven by twisting flax. Its surface is not as smooth as chemical fiber and cotton, but has a vivid concave-convex texture with a strong texture. At the same time, in addition to synthetic fibers, linen is also a very strong material in textiles.


    Linen Composition:

    1. In addition to synthetic fibers, linen is one of the stronger textiles. Its fiber strength is very high, it is not easy to tear or puncture, and it can be scraped and pressed with a palette knife.

    2. Linen fabric is a dense linen fabric woven from warp and weft threads, with good coloring performance.

    3. Linen fabric is woven by twisting linen into threads. The surface is not smooth, but the texture is strong.

    4. Linen cloth and linseed oil are taken from the same plant, and have the same chemical properties, which can support each other.

    5. Linen fabrics can be divided into single-thread weaving (SW) and double-thread weaving (DW), which can be easily processed into various specifications of different thicknesses, thicknesses, and textures. Coarse-grained linen is suitable for painting with large brushes and spatulas, making it the ideal canvas for bold, bold strokes. Medium-density linen is relatively smooth and has a very uniform texture, which is more suitable for the expression method of rubbing and dyeing in the realistic style. Fine-grained linen is mostly used for small-format works and is suitable for fine-grained painting styles.


    Advantages of linen:

    1. Reduce perspiration

    Helps maintain the balance of body electrolytes. Studies have shown that linen clothing can reduce the amount of perspiration from the human body by 1.5 times compared to wearing cotton clothing.

    2. Cool

    The heat dissipation performance of linen is 5 times that of wool and 19 times that of silk. In hot summer, wearing linen clothing can make the surface temperature of the human skin 3-4 degrees Celsius lower than wearing silk and cotton clothing, and the comfort is very high.

    3. dry

    Linen can absorb moisture equivalent to 20% of its own weight, and it can also quickly release the absorbed moisture. Even if we sweat a lot in summer, we can still keep dry.

    4. Anti-static

    Generally, only 10% flax is contained in the blended fabric, which can play the role of anti-static. It can also effectively alleviate the restlessness, headache, chest tightness, and dyspnea caused by static electricity.

    5. Radiation protection

    Wearing clothes made of linen can greatly reduce the effects of radiation, such as the decline in male sperm count caused by radiation.

    6. Hypoallergenic

    Linen clothing is good news for people with skin allergies, because linen fabrics not only do not cause allergic reactions, but also help treat some allergic diseases. Linen has a good effect on reducing inflammation and preventing fever.

    7. Inhibit bacteria

    Flax can inhibit bacteria and fungi, and can effectively prevent some diseases. According to research by Japanese researchers, linen sheets can prevent bed sores from developing in long-term bedridden patients, and linen clothing is beneficial to the prevention and treatment of certain skin conditions, such as common rashes and chronic eczema.
