Looks like you have two sources above. :) But I was going to comment that as gowns were made of linen, it wouldn't be completely out of the realm of possibility that some habits were also made of linen especially in a warmer climate. I mean, I know wool wicks, but I can't imagine wearing it in Atlanta in the middle of the summer without keeling over!

Yeah, thanks to all the layers and the close fit riding habits are warm by nature, I really can't imagine wanting to wear a wool one in the heat and humidity of a Virginia or Carolina summer! Even the linen seems hot compared to my normal summer event gear.
