This Derek Rose T-shirt is made from an exceptionally soft pure linen jersey. A fibre which typically comes with that rough feeling but this fabric has been knitted with a very fine yarn and finished with a soft wash. All this creates a unique softness.
Linen is a natural fibre which comes from the flax plant and boasts characteristics perfect for warmer climates. Linen can absorb up to 20% of its weight in moisture causing it to draw perspiration away from the body. Linen is also fast-drying; the fibres release moisture back into the air very quickly and dry almost instantly because the fibre itself cannot hold air or heat. Finally, linen is famous for its durability. Washing linen makes it stronger and softer and the tensile strength increases when wet.
