pure linen bath towel with black cotton base pre washed
The fibre of choice for the first fleet and our grandmothers.
The linen fibre processed from the flax plant has been favoured through history for household and clothing uses. One of the first instructions to the first fleet upon arrival in Australia was to search for cultivation of native flax. Durability of the linen fibre and the high density of linen fabric give it at least twice the life of cotton. This is why it was used for ships sails. Our grandmothers insisted on linen for tea towels because it also absorbs moisture excellently.
One of our favourite facts about linen is that it has a light massaging effect due to microscopic breaks within the fabric. Apparently this favourably stimulates blood-flow and promotes relaxation. Linen reduces static electricity creating a microclimate of enhanced comfort. As well as this it does not cause allergies and won’t irritate the skin.
