** Please note: If you received swatches before the 10th of November you will have the original 'Cobalt' blue linen. This version is not as deep as the previous version so I've renamed it 'Cobalt II'. Please get in touch if you have the earlier colour and would like to see this new version before placing your order - I'm more than happy to send you a new swatch.
'Cobalt II' is incredibly bright and lots of fun to wear!
Make: If you're looking to make a statement piece, consider a Sia dress, Free range slacks or an Ayora jacket. For a slightly more subtle burst of colour, try a Nullarbor cami or a pair of Flint shorts. Either way, our striking cobalt blue is sure to add some electric energy to your handmade wardrobe!
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.
Our mid-weight linen is 160gsm. This weight helps to add a little structure and volume to garments where required, but still provides that classic linen drape we know and love. 160gsm 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.
Origin: France, created from European Flax® fibres with our mill in China.
Composition: 100% Linen, Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified.
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.
