Q:

Why did people stop wearing linen?

Hey everyone! I was recently shopping for clothes and came across a few linen shirts and pants, which got me wondering - why did people stop wearing linen? It used to be such a popular fabric in ancient times, and even in some cultures today. So, what happened? Is there a specific reason why linen fell out of fashion, or was it just a gradual shift towards other materials? I'd love to hear your thoughts and learn more about the history of linen clothing. Thanks!
