Linen is a luxurious yarn made from the fibers of the flax plant. It is very absorbent and garments made of linen are known for their exceptional coolness and freshness in hot weather.
Linen textiles are believed to be among the oldest in the world. Dyed flax fibers found in a prehistoric cave in Georgia suggest the use of woven linen fabrics from wild flax may date back about 36.000 years ago. Flax was first domesticated in ancient Mesopotamia, where linen was used by the wealthier class of the society, including priests.
