I thought linen was from flax plant, and cotton from the cotton plant. I have seen some cotton and linen blend shirts but was referring to "100% pure linen" garments. Point taken on cold and wet weather. I take it linen has the same properties as cotton here?

Most merino garments are wool blend anyway, not pure wool.
Thanks RonK though most of mine say "100% merino wool" or "100% wool exclusive of decoration" is that not pure wool?
"Use woolmark approved detergent"
Anyway will just use the standard stuff. Cheers.
