Fact about Linen

Why is linen so popular in the south and in hot climates?

Given a reasonable amount of care, quality linen will last a lifetime and can be passed from generation to generation.
With a minimum amount of proper care, the natural beauty of linen is easily maintained.
Linen is the strongest natural fiber known to man; it’s twice as strong as cotton and three times as strong as wool.
The strength also increases with 20% on wetting. When linen fabrics are in contact with the skin, it absorbs perspiration.
It can absorb up to 20% of its own weight in moisture while still feeling dry to the touch!
Then it releases the moisture to the outside air. It basically functions as a self-cooler.
This is the main reason why people choose to use linen for bedding in hot climates. The second reason would be that the fabric always feels fresh and cool.
