Linen is a very strong durable fiber. I wouldn’t worry about it holding up. I also wouldn’t wash it twice- unless it looks like it has a very loose weave. If the weave looks normal ( like the krona cottons) it probably won’t shrink anymore than the cotton. I’ve used a lot of linen when sewing- using it in quilts and making clothes. I’ve never had a shrinkage issue
