Did you know that linen is scientifically proven to be a cooler material than cotton and silk? Apparently because linen has a higher moisture absorbency and stiffness to the material, it doesn't stick to your skin like cotton would when you perspire. It flows and it billows leaving you feeling unbelievably cool. I didn't know that, but now I do. And I'm excited because warm weather is always a teaser for Southern California. A great linen top will be so cool, not just literally!
