Japanese spelling for linen and cotton?

Hi,

I just bought a jacket which only has a Japanese fabric label, and I'd like to know if it's cotton or linen (it feels like linen and was sold as such, I'm just curious).

Could anyone point me to the way those two materials are "spelled" in traditional Japanese ideograms?

Thanks,

JD

Hmm... Thank you very much. Unfortunately, I am now realizing that there are several items on the label. Can someone tell me what this says? It probably means that the main fabric is cotton, but just to be sure....

It says that the garment is a size 50, made of 100% wool, and is lined both in the torso and in the sleeves by 100% "Kyupura" which I will assume is Cupro.
