Properties of linen

Properties of linen

Properties of linen and its different uses

Linen is a natural fabric made with the longest fibers of the linen plant, and its use dates back to thousands of years ago, this fiber has multiple uses at home and on commercial applications. Some of the main producers of linen are France, China, Belgium and Holland.

“Linen is used in many applications nowadays, mainly because it absorbs liquids really fasts, it is a comfortable fiber, and as it does not stretch out too much, it avoids a garment to look worn”, thinks Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, a clothes manufacturer in Mexico.

Among many of the properties of linen we can find durability and abrasion resistance, as it resists twice the force of cotton, which is one of the most resistant fibers. Linen can also absorb tints easily and can be adapted to different manufactured textiles, plus it does not produce static problems.

Linen, on its natural state, can expand from a white color to a taupe one, and weave and textile products made with this fiber are easy to clean in a wash cycle or with dry processes.

Linen has many uses on the manufactured textile products for clothing and other items such as home products.

Due to the absorbance properties of linen, this is a great fiber to produce clothing, it will only feel wet after it has absorbed at least 20% of humidity, and it is also a great heat conductor, which allows the garment to disperse the heat to all of the body, and it dries really fast, which is a reason for buyers to like garments made of this fiber.

“One good advantage of linen is that it has too little elasticity, which allows garments, such as jackets, shirts, blouses, skirts, dresses and pants to keep its original shape for a longer time”, said Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, about this fiber.
