Rayon is made from natural substance, so even though it is classified as a 
synthetic, it should be a good companion blend with linen. Both are comfortable 
fabrics to wear, linen wicks moisture, so it is a great hot weather fabric - 
especially in Ansteorra! Rayon has wonderful drapabilty, and gives a lovely 
flow to skirts.
You get linen's durability and comfort, without the general stiffness that is 
usually associated with most linen weaves, and the softness of rayon that 
makes an outfit look graceful.
Unfortunately, it still has to be ironed - rayon and linen are both rather 
wrinkle-y, but it should be a good fabric to work with!
