The Uses of Linen
1 Household Textile
Linen's intrinsic qualities of high moisture absorption, strength,
excellent launderability and excellent colour fastness when dyed or printed
(that is, the colours do not fade) allied to the fact that it does not "lint"
when used to dry glasses etc. maek it probably the best fibre for household
textiles. Its agreeable handle and luxurious appearance add to its value.
2 Furnishing Fabrics
Linen is strong, its colours are fast to washing, dry cleaning
and to light, and it can be manufactured so as to have excellent dimensional
stability (that is, it will not shrink). These qualities make Linen an excellent
raw material for furnishings fabrics. Linen furnishings fabrics cover a
wide range - curtainings, sheers, upholstery fabrics and wallcoverings.
3 Linen Clothing
Linen is leading the way towards a new, more casual and confortable style
of leisure and sports clothes. They breathe. They are confortable . They
absorb perspiration rapidly and they are soft - and become softer the more
they are used and washed. Linen is also extremely healthy and has no allergenic
properties, and is very strong .
