Linen

Linen, which comes from the flax plant, is even more ancient than cotton, and possibly the oldest textile on earth with examples being found which could date back over 30,000 years. It was grown in Great Britain from around 900 BC until the second world war, with Northern Ireland still growing linen until 2009. Flax grows very well and does not require too much care and can produce two very different product: stalks are used for linen and the seeds, known as flaxseeds or linseeds, used for food or oil. Linen is a summer-time favourite due to its breathability, moisture-wicking and cool comfort. It is also often blended with viscose for a softer handfeel and more premium feeling product.
