Being light in weight with its open weave pores which allow air to pass right through it makes it “The best” fabric to have for your summer dresses. It absorbs quickly and evaporates the sweat, giving us a quick cooling effect. It can also be easily dyed in a variety of eye-soothing natural yet bright tones which makes it perfect.
How automatically it happens that as the summer starts and our fathers start keeping the satin shirts back and the linen starts to clutch the front of our closets. Linen is just like cotton and more, apart from being breathable and cool it also is stronger and more lustrous than cotton. It can also be used in decorating our sweet abode with summery vibes as it’s also used in the manufacturing of bedsheets, table mats, and other home decor items.
