Linen is a natural textile made from the fibers of the flax plant. It’s known for its breathability, durability, and timeless appearance. Linen fabric is often light and crisp, with a slightly textured surface. It wrinkles easily but is favored for its elegant, relaxed look. It’s commonly used for making summer clothing, tablecloths, and curtains due to its comfortable, breathable nature. Sewing with linen may require special care due to its tendency to fray, but the result is often worth it for its classic, airy feel.
