Linen Fabric – Sustainable, Natural & Eco-Friendly!
Linen yarn is derived from the flax plant. The flax plant can grow in poor-quality soil and requires minimal water or pesticides – hence its reputation as an eco-friendly fabric. The long fibres from inside the plant stem are extracted, using moisture (water or chemical) to rot away the bark, and are then spun into yarn.
When it’s untreated, linen is a biodegradable fabric, meaning you don’t need to worry about your clothing going to waste at the end of its lifetime! It is also highly durable, becoming softer and more pliable the more that you wash it, which is why it’s treasured as a luxury fabric for bedding. Linen will last a lifetime, so is definitely worth the splurge.
