What are the reasons why linen and cotton gar­ ments should not be worn next to the skin ?

Both linen and cotton are good conductors of heat because they are closely woven and thus contain little
air in the spaces between the threads. They are also non-absorbent of moisture, and on this account should
not be worn next to the skin as they induce chills by allowing moisture to collect round the body.
