Linen has got bactericidal properties. This means that the pathogenic microflora is killed by contact with linen tissues. Silica (silicon dioxide), contained in flax, suppresses the growth of bacteria that cause fermentation and decay. Regular sleep on linen or wearing linen clothes speeds healing of wounds and acne, sunburn, and wounds in linen bandages are tightened faster. Linen can be ironed with a hot iron and boiled, which makes it possible to provide fabrics with maximum sterilization.
Antifungal properties of flax fibre help to cure fungal diseases. Therefore, linen fibre shoe insoles are used to get rid of the unpleasant odours. A similar effect is obtained by your entire body during sleep on linen bedding sets.
Unpainted linen fabrics are hypoallergenic. When growing flax is much less processed by chemicals than cotton. The high strength of flax fibres does not require manufacturers to use fabric improvers to create protection from shrinkage. Advice to allergy sufferers - choose linen fabrics that are easy to crumple and hard to iron - they do not have chemical treatment from creasing.
Being a natural material, linen fabric is perfectly "breathing", i.e. air flows, steam. It provides optimal ventilation of the skin, helps us regulate heat - when it touches the skin in winter it warms, in summer it removes heat, reducing body temperature. Hygroscopicity, or ability to absorb and evaporate moisture, is higher for flax than for cotton (12 and 8%, respectively). This property is important not only for our summer clothes but also for bed linens and kitchen towels at any time of the year.
Linen does not electrify. Hence, your hair will always look neat, if you wear linen shirts or sleep on linen pillowcases. In addition, the minimum electrification ensures the purity of the fabrics.
