Best fabric for hot weather

Linen is a top choice for a breathable fabric to wear in hot weather conditions. It is also very light and is a loosely woven, natural fiber which allows heat to escape from the body. It absorbs a lot of moisture and dries quickly, keeping you cool and dry.  What does this mean? You + linen = cool as a cucumber.

 

Cotton

Cotton is one of the best fabrics for summer and hot weather. Cotton is soft, lightweight, breathable, and soaks up sweat, allowing heat to escape the body and for you to stay cool.  Cotton does have some downsides, however. If you are sweating a lot, cotton tends to soak up moisture so it could become heavy and wet, it may also show moisture stains by your armpits or collar if you wear it in light colors. This is why we have engineered our Hexagon Styles with no formfitting figures so it flows on the body making it hard for the fabric to absorb moisture.
