Linen is made from the flax plant and is two to three times as strong as silk or cotton. The long fibres of the flax plant have a natural vegetable wax coating, which creates a subtle sheen in the woven natural fabric. The fabric wrinkles easily but can be pressed flat with a hot iron. For garments made with the natural fabric, 2.5 -3% shrinkage is considered normal. Because of the nature of natural linen fabric, styles are loose-fitting when the fabric is used in this form.
To take care of this garment it is best to use a soft detergent in a cold machine wash cycle and then to line dry in the shade. Use a hot iron when the garment is still damp.
