Linen Academy 5: Anti-bacterial Linen

Have you ever suffered form various allergies? One thing you should know about linen – the use of linen does not cause any allergies and eliminates many kinds of irritations on the skin. What is more linen is hygienic, this quality helps to decrease some skin diseases – from common rashes to chronic eczemas. This is why I love linen kids clothes – they are suitable for kids even with the most sensitive skin. This is why I recommend this Linen Pyjamas, no more allergies when wearing linen items even when sleeping.

Some news from Japanese researchers, studies have shown that bed-ridden patients do not develop bedsores where linen bed sheets are used. Linen naturally suppresses live pathogenic micro flora, bacteria and fungi flax is found to be an effective barrier to some diseases.

For any individual desiring to regain and maintain health, the best recommendation – dating all the way back to The Bible itself – is to wear linen.

Linen Academy 4: Ecological linen

Linen is well known environment friendly fabric. When you choose linen over cotton, you’re helping the planet because flax (the crop from which linen is derived) requires less water than cotton to grow, requires fewer other resources, and all the flax by-products are put to good use. Just take a look at this amazing flax field and read more about environment friendly sides of linen.

One more thing about linen, it is not necessarily needed to be dyed since it performs beautiful shades of natural colors. Finally, linen products do not need to be finished in any chemical methods so you can boldly dress your child in environment friendly Linen Kids Clothes from LinenKids.

I do love to dress my kids in linen clothes, to sustain the planet. But there is more ways to create healthy and eco friendly environment for your child – linen kids toys.

Linen Academy 3: Hard and long lasting linen fiber

Linen is renowned for its spectacular durability and long life. I do have my mom‘s linen dress and it still looks amazing. One reason why that old linen dress still looks like new is that linen resists dirt and doesn’t develop a furry texture. This will be interesting for you linen fabric’s durability and the high density give Linen at least twice the life of cotton. This is why I recommend you Boys Linen Suit for your little one. Take a look at its unique design and do not forget that this suit is durable as it is linen.

And do not worry about stains on this suit. Linen and linen-containing articles are easily laundered in hot water, may be boiled and dried in the sun, besides they may be hot-ironed. If you are willing to know more about linen care I invite you to read my blog post Linen Care Tips.

I believe you have already noticed that linen has a smooth surface and mat luster, which feels pleasant to the touch. But do not be afraid to wash linen items. Linen is long lasting fiber and the more you wash linen the softer and smoother it becomes.

30 days of LinenKids, day 10: Woollen Cap and Scarf Knitted Set

The first snow has fallen in Lithuania! You may not believe me, but it was snowing in Europe in the middle of Autumn. This trick of nature made me think that winter is coming so fast and it is time to look for warmer clothes. Especially for warm outdoor kids clothing as children love playing outside.

Severe wind and cool weather made me look for warm Woolen Cap and Scarf  Set. I am always looking for unique accessories for kids as I am bored of all these mass produced items and this is what I found – Woollen Cap and Scarf Knitted Set Sheep Off White

Just take a look at these wonderful hand crafted Sheep applique and embroidery! They make this cap and scarf look so different! But lovely looking item is not enough, I decided to share this Woollen Cap and Scarf Knitted Set Sheep Off White with you because it is not just beautiful and warm. This item is healthy, as it made of 100% natural wool, which will warm your baby up.

Looking for caps and scarfs i found one interesting thing about wool. The real genius of the wool fiber lies in its ability to cope with the high humidity that your child can get during rainstorms or at other times. Wool is a single fiber, which can slurp up to 30 percent of its own weight in moisture without feeling wet. This is so cool!

I have already decided, this set will be a perfect gift idea for my child. Christmas are still far away, but I am already looking for exclusive Christmas presents and this one looks just perfect for my child!

Linen Academy 2: Antistatic Properties of flax

Welcome to Linen Academy 2! Hope our first lecture  was interesting to you. Let me share even more information about linen.

I do not like when clothes become electric static, this is why linen clothes are my favorite.Talking about kids this is even more important as comfort is the main thing I consider when choosing kids clothes.

Linen clothes does not accumulate static electricity – even a small addition of flax fibers (up to 10%) to a cloth is enough to eliminate the static electricity effect creating a microclimate of enhanced comfort. No more worries about electric static clothes when wearing linen.

Maybe you are looking for antistatic dress for your little girl? I could recommend this Ladybird Linen Dress

Linen Academy 1: Excellent Absorbing Qualities

Linen fibers have been used for thousands of years and it’s still one of the most fashionable textile fibers. Indeed, turned into a multitude of household things, flax possesses important, truly exceptional, hygiene and consumer properties that explain why things made of it enjoy such popularity.

Linen fabric is my favorite one.  I decided to spread some news about it. I invite you to LinenKids Linen Academy, lets take a look at linen‘s wonderful character!

Excellent Absorbing Qualities

Linen fabrics are well known for its excellent absorbing qualities, meaning it rapidly absorbs and gives up moisture.  Absorbing water as quickly as a pond surface, before giving a feeling of being wet, linen cloth can absorb as much as 20% of its dry weight. This explains why linen cloth always feels fresh and cool. I have already tried Linen Towels. I can confirm – absorbing qualities are very useful for towels. I do recommend you to wash the linen textile before the use and you will gain the best absorbent qualities.

Just talked about my personal experience with linen towels and their absorbing qualities. Here is the Linen Towel I have already bought and I am fully satisfied with it. If you are looking for quickly drying towel, I do recommend  Exclusive Fluffy Natural Linen Terry Towel

This is my kid’s favorite towel. It is suitable even for the child with the most sensitive skin. What is more it’s a rare towel since few European companies weave terry cloth from linen. It’s a wonderful example of Lithuania’s long-time weaving traditions – making fabrics of superb quality, my family enjoys bath time with excellent absorbing qualities of this towel.
