Australia is hot, and sweat is no stranger. I'm not the only one that gets a tad self-conscious about my armpit stains, or… must I even say it… Booty sweat?!
Trust me; If you had to chase around three munchkins like mine, you'd be sweating, too.
Anyways, as another reason for my love of linen clothes, linen fabric is known as nature's wicker. Self-wicking, the hygroscopic fabric repels moisture wonderfully, yet it's also ironically absorbent, as well.
Wait, what? How can it be both?!
Linen clothes can absorb up to 20% of their weight in moisture before looking or feeling wet, meaning that you'll have to seriously sweat before the stains become visible. So not only do you feel cooler (like, your body temp is literally lower), but you can avoid that heavy, sticky, sweaty feeling synonymous with a cotton tee on a sunny day.
