Advantages and Disadvantages of Linen Fabric
Advantages of Linen Fabric:
Linen fabric is woven from flax fiber, so linen has a series of characteristics of flax fiber. For example, linen fabric has good moisture absorption and moisture conductivity. Data shows that linen fabric can absorb moisture more than 20 times its own weight, that's why it's so comfortable to wear linen.
Linen fabric is anti-allergic, because flax fiber is a natural raw material extracted by degumming process, it will not stimulate human skin and naturally has good anti-allergic properties.
Linen clothing can also alleviate the harm of magnetic fields to the human body. In Antarctica, expedition personnel generally wear linen clothes and linen tents, which greatly reduces the impact of magnetic fields on humans.
In addition to the above 2 points, the linen fabric also has anti-static and antibacterial properties, which makes the linen fabric less prone to mildew. At the same time, the linen material is light and thin, and it is breathable and cool after wearing it, and linen socks are also popular because of this feature.
Disadvantages of Linen Fabric:
Linen fabric has high toughness and poor elasticity, so the fabric will leave wrinkles after deformation. Because the easy wrinkle leads to the deviation of dimensional stability, it becomes extremely difficult to measure the ruler, and there are often dimensional deviations. There is also a fatal disadvantage of linen, that is, there will be thorns in clothes, which is the characteristic of linen fiber itself, so the discomfort after wearing it is inevitable, but with the continuous improvement of fabric technology, linen belts This discomfort has been minimized, and it has become a trendy fabric at present.
