It’s our favourite time of year here at Whitney Linen — Spring! Time to finally put that parka away for good and pull our linen jackets, shirts and blazers out of the closet. If you’ve never bought linen before, you might be one of those people who’s always been worried linen was a high maintenance material. Not so! In fact, linen can be easier to clean and prep than any other item in your closet, and the more you wear it, the better it looks. Trust us!
Plus, better than those pesky synthetic fabrics you’ll often find in shirts, jackets and pants, linen is natural and breathable. Seriously—nothing cools the skin like linen, which is precisely why it’s been used for centuries in sweltering climates.
Here are a few handy pointers for taking good care of your linen so that it loves you back and lasts a lifetime!
