Linen is antibacterial and in early cultures has always been associated with cleanliness and protection against illness. Linen wears well and does not soil quickly.
Like silk it retains body heat in cooler weather and when its warm linen can absorb up to 20% moisture without feeling damp and so prevents bacterial growth.
It has an open weave and so air can circulate and is resistant to fungi and insects..It is recommended for use all around the house so this is why our storage bags are perfect for this.
It does not accumulate static is lint free and does not cause allergic reactions. It is said it can calm and heal skin breakouts and reduce inflammatory conditions and this is why it has been used as bandaging right through the centuries.
I think it is a wonder fabric and I love it.
I hope this is of help Karen, I will add a bit more in a day or so as time is the enemy and I need to embroider and finish a new baby bag I am designing.
I could happily talk about linen all day.
Its a dull misty morning here in Ferrycarrig but we look forward to the week- end weather, as it is promised to improve then !?……. Well we live in hope! We enjoyed all that beautiful weather we had in the summer so much….. and forgot about the rain so that was nice.
To day I have a lot to do in my workshop so I will not notice it and later I hope to do some baking including some soda bread which I will store in my bread bag from www.Agneshdesign.com You know linen has anti bacterial qualities so it is the perfect place for all storage ! and so perfect for storing bread.
See you soon x Agnes
