Linen Hijab

Linen scarf provides a coolness around your neck, thanks to the weave and linen fiber which allows more airflow and it’s structure means it stays away from your skin allowing better airflow over your body, making your body free of moisture. Linen is a stiff fabric and is less likely to cling to the skin; when it billows away, it quickly dries out and becomes cool again. Your Linen scarf feels cool to the touch and linen fabric will quickly remove perspiration from your skin. Linen is capable of absorbing moisture before quickly yielding it again.

Because of its molecular structure linen scarf can absorb as much as 1/5 of its weight before giving a feeling of being damp or wet. In other words, your linen scarf will absorb lots of perspiration and is unlikely to feel clammy as water evaporates off linen as quickly as off surface puddle. So, water is both absorbed and evaporated quickly. The result is your linen scarf acting like an excellent cooling system.
