Stonewashed linen - what is it?

Washed linen has a characteristic pastel or slightly faded color. It is a perfectly insulating and breathable material. The linen washing process increases the softness and elasticity of the fabric by loosening the weave and softening the hard fibers. It's great for traditional, rustic or vintage clothing designs, but has many other industrial uses as well.


Washed linen production methods:

Organic softening - using natural mineral rocks such as pumice or other formations of volcanic origin, the hard linen yarn is softened, thanks to its strength, the fibers are not destroyed in the process, but only smoothed.

Method using enzymes of organic origin. Simpler and gaining popularity due to its effectiveness. Treatment using the principles of physical and material mechanics is used to soften the structures of linen yarn and to wash away hard protein compounds.
