Does linen absorb water badly?

Linen is said to be more absorbent than cotton.

Many manufacturers in Japan and overseas have provided information, and I think it depends on the inspection how many times it is.

While there is such a theory,

“It seems that linen kitchen cloth repels water, or rather, it doesn’t absorb water well, what is it?”

There are quite a few people who have this experience and have a simple question.

I will tell you the truth.

The above question is often asked when selling at events.

By the way, long before I started Pint!, I had the same thought when I was deciding whether to use linen cloth for the first time.

The result is frustrating because the linen cloth is so smooth, it doesn't absorb water, and the fiber itself is squishy.

The reason is···

"Gluing done at the time of shipment"


Linen thread is made from flax, which is a plant fiber, and the thread is woven into linen fabric.

From here it becomes a kitchen cloth and various linen items.

As mentioned later, linen itself is more absorbent and dries faster than cotton.

There is something blocking it.

This is the glue that is added to the product at the time of shipping to keep it looking clean (such as tension) and to prevent it from getting dirty.

Glue and linen go well together, and they do not separate easily.

If the fabric feels crispy no matter how many times you use it or wash it, you should consider that the glue is not completely removed.

If the cloth doesn't look good even after half a year of use, it may be because the cloth has a lot of glue on it.

Of course, the linen cloth has glue on it, so it can't be helped.

That's not what it means.

I want to enjoy the goodness of the linen itself, which is not glued! !

There is a linen cloth that can be recommended for those who say, Pint!'s linen kitchen cloth fabric .

Pint!'s linen kitchen cloth fabric is a raw woven fabric.

It's just taken out of the loom and inspected, which means it's not glued.

In this case, the linen will show strong water absorbency just by soaking it in water by running it through a few times first.

Yes, the linen material itself is still very good.

By the way, as long as I've been around the stores, I've never come across anything that isn't glued on the market, other than Pint!

If you want to do a large and efficient business, gluing is a common processing method, and of course there is no problem with the ingredients.

These aren't bad things, but Pint! wants to make sure that the quality of the material is good and that the product is not inconvenient for the seller, as per the concept.

The interesting story about glue is what I learned from talking with the craftsman, so it's not a public inspection or anything like that, but it's based on the theory and experience of the craftsman who has been doing it for decades, and it's a reliable story. I think.

By the way, Pint!'s linen kitchen cloth fabric doesn't end there.

I didn't glue it, but I wonder if all the customers who touched it didn't glue it? ! I'm surprised.

The reason for this is that it is woven with plenty of super high density yarn, which is 2 to 3 times more than usual.

Because the thread is jerky, there is tension with just the thread.

To put it in detail, this is not possible unless the spun yarn is fairly straight and beautiful, so the quality of the yarn is also proven.

The fabric that uses a lot of threads has a surprisingly high water absorption because it uses a large amount of linen, which is a highly absorbent thread.

Many people say that once you use it, you can't use other cloths.

Please try using it once.

This page, "Introduction to manufacturing linen products," also introduces Pint!'s deep commitment to linen products.

Even if you like cloth or linen, I think it's information that you don't know, of course, to this point.

I would like to share some of the interesting things that I learned from the long talks with the craftsmen.
