74. Flax and hemp can be very hard to tell apart.
Linen refers to the fabric, and it actually refers to both flax and hemp. Hemp tends not to get quite as white as flax, but they're processed the same way and can look very similar in the fabric. In my experience, hemp doesn't wrinkle quite as badly, and the best jeans I ever had (sadly too small now, but I'm keeping them in hopes I can get all this weight off) were hemp jeans--soft, molded to my body with wearing, and super, super comfy.
