Plain Medium Weight Linen Fabric
weather. Linen fabric feels cool to the touch. It is smooth, making
the finished fabric lint-free, and gets softer the more it is washed.
The fibers do not stretch and are resistant to damage from abrasion.
However, because linen fibers have a very low elasticity, the fabric will
eventually break if it is folded and ironed at the same place repeatedly.
Linen should not be dried too much by tumble drying: it is much easier to
iron when damp because of its growth pattern. Linen wrinkles very
easily, and so some more formal linen garments require ironing often,
in order to maintain perfect smoothness. Nevertheless, the tendency to
wrinkle is often considered part of the fabric's particular "charm",
and a lot of modern linen garments are designed to be air-dried
on a good hanger and worn without the necessity of ironing.
A characteristic often associated with contemporary linen yarn
is the presence of "slubs", or small knots which occur randomly
along its length.
