"I love all the new colors in the 5.3-ounce!!! Hopefully you'll still have them all next spring when we do another baronial order. The "Sphinx" and that new purple -- I forget the name -- are particularly lovely, and I think the browns will do quite well with re-enactors. I'm still hoping for a light silvery grey in a cooler tone, though, to use in a specific project. Everyone was very satisfied with our last purchase, and I love the napkins. Hope that all is well with everyone there, and I look forward to working with you again soon."

--Samantha Pendleton Sep 30, 2009

Linen - The Preferred Fabric for Clothing of Healing, Healthy Living and Well Being

Electronic Properties

At the electronic cellular level, flax cells are highly complementary with human cells; producing a benevolent effect on the human organism. The human cell is capable of completely dissolving a flax cell. It is interesting that flax thread appears to be the only natural material utilized for internal sutures in a surgical setting.

Scientists have discovered that linen fibers reflect light. The light energy aspect of living organisms has been measured by many individuals within the Scientific community. Nobel prize winning Dr.Otto Heinrich Warburg identified signature frequency numbers of the average human at 70-90. All results with numbers less than 50 were identified as the signature frequency of chronic disease. Any number less than 15 was identified with those having a diagnosed incurable condition such as cancer.

The measurement of linen fabric measures 5,000 signature frequencies. How do other fabrics compare? Plant fibers like cotton and hemp are not a healing fiber when measuring its signature energy output. Standard bleached and colored cotton measures 40 units of energy. The good news is that Organic unbleached cotton measures 100 units of energy which is a ‘normal’ but not a healing fiber. The silk fabric measures 10 units of energy which would fail to support health in the human body. Could it be a low number because of its origin? Silk is produced from an ‘unclean’ insect. Could silk be also use of so many chemicals that it is an unhealthy fabric. Rayon measures at 15 signature frequency. Polyester, acrylic, spandex, lycra, viscose and nylon measure zero and do not reflect light. Pure wool measures 5000 units of energy. For any individual desiring to be well the best recommendation from the instructions of the Holy Scriptures is to wear linen. The Biblical warning of wearing wool and linen together proved in scientific studies to be accurate: the energy of these two fabrics put together (wool sweater on top of a linen outfit) collapsed the electrical field as well as wearing of black colored fabric. Where the two textiles measure 5,000 signature frequencies, when put together, these cancelled each other and brought measurable weakness and in some tests even pain to the human body.

Historical Use

Since the earliest times, flax has been known to have healing properties. Recent studies out of Japan and posted from the linen textile manufacturers confirm this truth. In the Latin language, the word flax means "being most useful" and the Holy Scriptures certainly emphasized this material over all other fabrics for the Holy attire. The original Hebrew language gives the attire of Adam and Eve as a linen robe of light (Genesis 3:21). In establishing the protocols ‘statutes’ of health, the prophet Moses received specific instructions. Cleansing a ‘leper’ meaning those ‘incurable’ gave only three distinct fabrics of attire: wool or linen or leather (Leviticus 13:47-48). It was emphasized as forbidden to wear linen and wool together (Leviticus 19:19 and Deuteronomy 22:11)

Historically the beautiful white linen attire of the Hebrew people was with Almighty God’s specific instructions, the decisions as given in the instructions ‘Torah’ as ordinances (Exodus 39:1-31). What special qualities were in this linen material that would restore life? Comprising a multitude of household items, flax possesses truly exceptional hygienic properties that heighten its value in consumer products and explains its widespread popularity.

Flax is an annual of the family Linaceae. There are over 200 varieties of flax plants that, depending on the regional conditions and climate. Flax blooms in clusters of bluish, navy-blue, and, more seldom, violet, rosy and white flowers that open up at dawn and close and fall at around noon when heat sets in. Each flower blooms for a few hours. Bees collect close to fifteen kg of honey from one hectare of flax field. Researchers found that one will fall asleep faster, sleep deeper, and wake up in a better mood after sleeping in linen! No fabric outpaces linen in natural strength, luster and durability. Ancient healing secrets revealed in the Holy Scriptures instruct that this fabric is considered Holy attire and part of the sanctification path. Linen is an ideal fabric not only for attire but for your table at every meal as a ‘high energy’ tablecloth and napkin.

Physical Properties

Flax fabric is an excellent filter protecting against chemical exposure, noise and dust. - Linen clothing reduces solar gamma radiation by almost half thereby protecting humans wearing linen. -Flax fiber retrieved from contaminated soil appears to be totally resistant to harmful radiation. - Linen underwear heightens positive emotions as well as possessing rare bacteriological properties. Resistant to fungus and bacteria, flax is found to be an effective barrier to some diseases. According to Japanese researchers, studies have shown that bed-ridden patients do not develop bedsores where linen bed sheets are used. Wearing linen clothes helps to decrease some skin diseases - from common rash to chronic eczemas. -Linen is highly “hydroscopic” meaning it rapidly absorbs and gives up moisture. Adsorbing water as quickly as a pond surface, before giving a feeling of being wet, linen cloth can absorb as much as 20% of its dry weight. This explains why linen cloth always feels fresh and cool.
Linen does not cause allergic reactions and is helpful in treating a number of allergic disorders. Linen is effective in dealing with inflammatory conditions, reducing fever, and providing a healthy air exchange. Some neurological ailments benefit from the use of linen clothing.

Linen cloth does not accumulate static electricity - even a small addition of flax fibers (up to 10%) to a cloth is enough to eliminate the static electricity effect. Linen possesses high air permeability and heat - Heat conductivity of Linen is five tmes as high as wool and 19 tmes as that of silk . In hot weather those dressed in Linen clhothing are found to show the skin temperature 3°-4°C below that of their silk or cotton-wearing friends. According to some studies, a person wearing linen clothes perspires 1.5 times less than when dressed in cotton clothes and twice less than when dressed in viscose clothes. Meanwhile in cold weather linen is an ideal warmth-keeper.

Silica present in the flax fiber protects linen against rotting - the preserved mummies of Egyptian Pharaohs were wrapped in the finest linen cloth.Linen rejects dirt and does not get a furry texture; linen and linen-containing articles are easily laundered in hot water, may be boiled and dried in the sun, besides they may be hot-ironed thereby ensuring maximum sterilization; Linen provides a sensation of gentle, natural relief. Linen’s smooth surface and matte luster appears beautiful and feels pleasant to the touch. The more linen is washed, the softer and smoother it becomes.

Testimonies

When wearing 100% linen, many individuals have testified that their healing was rapid. Post injury or surgical pain was substantially reduced (without the use of prescription or over the counter drugs) when using linen bandages and wearing linen clothing.

This information which would be a little noticed matter except for this research which demonstrates why it was a necessary part of the path of faith. A most remarkable testimony was shared by a Karaite Jew: He testified of his linen tallit, (prayer shawl) that was precious to him. This prayer shawl was so familiar to him that it was similar to a well worn Holy Scriptures whose pages had become regularly touched with use. In questioning him as to why he still had it, he opened up to share a remarkable testimony. Thirteen years previously, his wife was in labor and delivered an infant that failed to breathe. Calling the emergency 911 team, they waited gripped with the inevitable loss of an infant in ‘stillbirth.’ Grief stricken, he grabbed his prayer shawl and held his daughter in his arms for an agonizing 30 minutes. He recited the prayers of faith while waiting for the team to arrive. Unbelievably, according to his account, when the paramedics arrived, and had not yet touched the infant, there was a dramatic color change for the infant and breathing had resumed! He testified that this special child has a brilliant mind and does well in school. This amazing miracle involved use of a specific linen tallit that would be ‘swaddling.’ Did this linen prayer shawl contribute to the healing of this infant– demonstrating the benefits of obedience to the specific divine requirements for linen for religious ceremonies as revealed above as recorded in the Holy Scriptures?Testimonies from many individuals confirm that this Biblical clothing protocol brought healing their bodies.

The Holy Scriptures prescribes the wearing of linen or wool (separately of course) for those that are ill and ‘incurable’ in Leviticus 13. Linen is an ideal fabric not only for attire but for your table at every meal as a ‘high energy’ tablecloth and napkin.

In summary, if you wear black clothing, standard cotton clothing, rayon, polyester and nylon stockings, these will hinder your health by discharging and extinguishing one’s electrical field light. When put into nature law depletion, there will be darkness. The human body will struggle with 9 areas of opened windows within the human body vulnerable for attack. The areas of windows in the ‘nerve bundle’ regions of the human body ‘leak’ subtle energy fields with the reserves of mineral charges. The dead battery effect would drain until the cellular function would be termed useless. If you have good flax next to wool or other man made ‘fake’ fibers, the energy signature will ‘discharge’ and one will suffer the consequences. This is the law of nature principle. What is at a higher level will come down to the average of the lower amount unless shielded. If you use cotton, rayon, these are not as strengthening to your body and may serve to keep your health ‘average’ with the typical western illnesses. If you want optimum health and healing and a strengthened immune system, you can choose to follow the instructions of the Holy Scriptures in getting your holy wardrobe knowing that you have the highest blessings available. Bless the LORD for this new knowledge and seek HIS ways.

Biblical References to Linen

“And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright: For fine linen is the righteousness of Saints”- Revelation 19:8

The description of the Tabernacle, which formed the central point of worship for the tribes of Israel, the historical record tells us that the curtains were of fine linen. The use of linen was to have holy garments for the priests of the nation for glory and for beauty (Exodus 28:2). On Yom Kippur the High Priest alone entered the Holy of Holies, to make atonement for his house and for the people (Lev. 16); on that occasion he wore white linen garments. Aaron, the high priest, entered the holy place, he put on a holy linen coat-and girdle, and upon his head was a linen cap, This shows the unique place held by linen in the history of ancient times, and the reverence accorded it is further demonstrated in the New Testament, which states that when the Revelation of things to come was vouchsafed to John, the seven angels, who held in their hands the past and future of mankind, were clothed in pure and white linen; and a final quotation from the same Book of Revelation actions informs us that the garments of those chosen for eternal life and happiness will be of fine linen. The use of linen for priestly vestments was not confined to the ancient Israelites, during the birth of the Messiah, we know that linen was a common fabric used by the people and the Temple because of its purity.

What prophecy has been of flax relating to the true Messiah? “A bruised reed shall he not break and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.” – Isaiah 42:3 and Matthew 12:20. These are prophecies that would identify the Messiah to be a light to the Gentiles (Isaiah 42:6).
