Benefits of Linen: Well being

posted in: Facts about Flax | 0

Flax fibers are known for their great ability to absorb water. This is due to a high amount of pectins, the components that hold the fibers together. Pectins in linen textiles give them a «lively», heat-regulating quality. Depending on the weather, they can retain water or repel it – up to 20%* of their weight – without feeling damp to the touch. A guaranteed sensation of well-being.

Supple, relaxing linen sheets are comfortable for sleeping and encourage regular sleep cycles. Linen is an intrinsically hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial fabric with a soothing hand : inherent properties that have been known since the Middle Ages to help people with skin problems.
