Linen as Nature Intended.
The manufacture of linen yarn and fabric is a complicated process, one that requires skill and expertise from the cultivation of the raw flax plant, to the combing and processing of the fibres in preparation for spinning and weaving.
The use of linen dates back to ancient times: it was the first known textile fibre in the world, the earliest traces of its use dating back to 8000 BC.
Linen is highly absorbent and a good conductor of heat, keeping the body cool when worn in hot climates. It has a smooth, lustrous surface with a natural resistance to staining.
The linen cloth Holland and Sherry has developed for this collection is woven from a 2 ply warp and weft 100% Linen yarn for extra durability and is unlike any other linen cloth of its kind. The weave construction is perfect for jackets, trousers, skirts or dresses making it the ultimate smart, cool and casual wear fabric for spring and summer.
