Natural fabrics are loved for their functionality, comfort, durability, sustainability and beauty. But which fabric is best? Cotton and linens among those fabrics that are used by a wide section.
How can you tell the differences between these fabrics? First, feel the difference between linen and cotton. If you see a piece of fabric with a slubby texture, it is likely linen. It has longer fibers than cotton. A linen garment may have a visible line in its weave, which is different from cotton. Cotton can look smoother and more uniform. A linen piece may have natural creases that are more prominent than a cotton one.
Durability- While cotton is more flexible and stretcher than linen, it is less durable. Egyptian cotton is made of long-staple cotton fibers. This makes it cotton. The linen is more rigid but lasts longer. This is because linen yarn’s cellulose fibers are slightly longer than those in cotton yarn and are wrapped tighter. This increases its durability and longevity.
Texture- Because of its loose weave, cotton is a smoother fabric than linen, which has a more textured look.
Softness- Flax fibers make cotton feel rougher than linen, which makes it softer to the touch. The sheets of cotton are soft straight out the box and can last about five years. However, linen sheets will last for up to 30 years and become soft with repeated washes.
Appearance- As cotton fibers are less strong, cotton pills are more expensive than linen. Both linen and cotton wrinkle easily since they are made from natural fibers. However, linen wrinkles slightly more because of its stiffer fabric.
Warmth- The insulation properties of cotton are similar to that of fiberglass. It does not conduct heat. Linen flax fibers, which are hollow, are very cool in summer. However, they should be layered during winter.
Linen vs cotton bedsheets: -
To get a good night’s sleep, you must feel comfortable. Although cotton is preferred to synthetic fibers for comfort, linen bedding still holds the top spot in this department. Linen sheets are not only soft, but they also have temperature-regulating qualities that will keep you cool even on the warmest nights, and cozy when it’s cold outside. Its natural ability to wick water away from the body means that you won’t feel hot or sweaty upon waking up. Only blissfully refreshed and ready for the day ahead.
