Linen Knit Mesh Towel | Saks
A mesh structure with a high density, and a textured knitted fabric that looks like a waffle weave at first glance. The more you use it, the softer it becomes, but it still retains the crisp texture that is unique to linen, making it a linen-like refreshing towel.
Due to the knitting structure, it has little elasticity. Therefore, it can be used without stress even when wiping or rubbing. Because it does not stretch, it gives a beautiful impression even if you hang it. The linen material, which has excellent water absorption and quick drying properties, is combined with a mesh structure for hygienic use.
The thread is thick and dense, so it has sufficient water absorption and the strength of the fabric itself. It can be used in a wide range of places, such as washing your body in the bath, towels in the kitchen, washroom, toilet, gym, or when traveling.
We also have a lot of colors. Originally, the coloration is unique to a manufacturer that also worked on collection brand products. Linen dyes brighter and more beautifully than cotton, and this color variation takes advantage of its characteristics.
Like other linen knit products, it can be washed at home. As for the washing method, it can be machine washed, and there is no special care to be taken except to use a net to prevent snagging.
A factory specializing in linen knitwear located in Yamagata Prefecture, where the knitting industry is thriving.
Linen is most often used as a woven fabric, and knits (knitted) are rarely seen. Kenland, which has long continued to manufacture collection brand knit products centered on wool, has perfected linen knit technology through years of research, and now specializes in linen knit and produces it as its own brand.
To make linen into a knit, the machines and manufacturing methods are different from those of weaving, so detailed management and accumulation of techniques such as thread making, knitting, and dyeing are required. The finished fabric itself and the suitable use are also different.
Of course, linen's high water absorption, quick-drying, fastness, coolness, and glossy texture of the thread are the same. On the other hand, there are also aspects such as "it is easy to wrinkle" and "it is taut and a little hard at first". The knitted structure of linen knit creates elasticity, does not wrinkle, and has a soft texture.
In addition, unlike wool knits, it can be machine washed. "Linen material x knit technology" has advantages that other combinations do not have.
Since there are various types of knitting, the appearance and stretchability of each are different. Having supported the knit production of collection brands for many years, the development of colors is also attractive.
I think that there are many people who are new to linen knit, but it is a material that I would like you to try once.
[Handling and care]
Dehydration is possible with a washing machine at home using a laundry net. In the case of hand washing, machine washing is recommended as the load varies depending on the part. Use a laundry net to prevent snagging.
Avoid tumble drying as the fabric may shrink or become too soft.
Knitted fabrics become softer with every wash. Linen is a fiber that separates, so there will be dust at first due to the nature of the material, but this is not a problem. Please take the waste that came out.
