One of the first fibers our ancestors every spun, linen is made from the inner stalk fibers from the of the flax plant. Fragments from 10,000 years ago still exist, so you can see it's extremely durable. It can be machine washed and dried flat. The yarn has been been wet spun, and double boiled to soften it and remove most of the natural starch in the fiber. It is still quite stiff, but the more linen is used and washed, the softer it becomes.
