Origin: Our European Flax® fibre is grown and processed in France, then spun, dyed and woven in China. 

Composition: 100% Linen, Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified.

Weight: 185gsm

Width: 138cm

Details: 100% linen is a favourite for many of us as an easy-care, everyday garment fabric.  Renowned for being an incredibly strong and durable fibre, our linen begins with a crisp hand that will soften with each wash.    

Light, breathable, cool and comfortable.  Linen is our go-to choice for relaxed shapes when creating elegant and timeless pieces.  

This 185gsm weight helps to add a little structure and volume to garments where required, but still provides that classic linen drape we know and love.  180gsm is normally opaque enough to not require a lining.  Please order a free swatch card to check the opacity, hand feel, colour and texture, prior to purchase. 

Make: Is there anything you can't make from a classic black and white check?!   

A Rosery Apparel Hazel dress or a Muna and Broad Waikerie dress would make a wonderful everyday option.  The McCall's M7969 or a Hughes dress could also be a wonderful addition to your handmade wardrobe.

Care instructions: We recommend washing this fabric before use in the same way you intend to care for your finished garments.  Pre-washing will help remove any shrinkage before beginning your project. 

Our linen can be machine washed and tumble dried.  We do suggest a delicate cycle and using a gentle detergent to help retain colour vibrancy.  Avoid detergents with optic whiteners, unless it's white linen!

We do find hand washing then hanging to dry in the shade where possible, is the best care method to retain colour vibrancy with most natural fibres.

Please note: Monitor settings can change the way these colours are viewed on  screen.  A free swatch card with the full linen collection is available to help eliminate any guess work!

Ordering online

Placing your first online order?

Ordering from a new store, or placing your first online fabric order can feel a little risky!

A+R Fabrics strives to create an easy + enjoyable shopping experience, whether it's your first of tenth order with us. 

We've tried to include as much information about each fabric as possible, but we welcome any questions you may have about project suitability, etc.

We offer swatches as a way of viewing our collection prior to purchase. 

Swatches

We offer free swatches to AU + NZ customers so that you can check out our fabrics in person. 

This way you can check the colour, weight, handfeel and even run the swatch under your sewing machine to ensure it's going to be the right choice for you project. 

Swatches are avaiable to friends in other areas - the website will charge a small fee to cover postage. 

Order Fulfilment

A+R is a micro sized (sole operator) business which means our fulfilment times can be a little longer than some of our friends in the Industry. 

The current fulfilment time is 2-3 business days.

Fabulous Quality and a dream to sew

This linen is buttery soft and sews like a dream. It's thick enough for pants and perfect for the summer. I love my gingham pants I made from this. Extra points as they don't crinkle excessively whilst being worn.
