Leo, 90% man-made fibres and 10% linen. Lenght : 150 cm/59". Weight : 205 g/m2.
Linen is a natural fiber, like cotton, but it takes longer to harvest and make into fabric, as flax fibers can be difficult to weave. The fibers are extracted from the plant and stored for long periods of time to soften the fibers. Flax is very breathable, flax linen fibers are hollow so air and water can easily circulate.
Leo is a blend of 90% man-made fibre and 10% linen, guaranteeing the advantages of a man made fibre, but keeping the look of linen in the fabric.
- Man-made fibre is stronger and does not shrink.
- Man-made fibre is more moisture-wicking while linen is more absorbent.
- Man-made fibre dries faster and does not wrinkle as easily as linen. Leo is used for albs, due to its off-white linen look and the easy maintenance.
