Linen 200gsm - Citronelle 0.5m
Origin: Our European Flax® fibre is grown and processed in France, then woven and dyed in China.
Composition: 100% Linen, Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified.
Citronelle is a vibrant Chartreuse acid yellow/green colour that sits between yellow and green in the colour wheel. A vivid colour that combines the vitality of green with the energy and optimism of yellow, our Citronelle colour is associated with healing, good health, and a healthy lifestyle.
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 200gsm linens are a new weight for A+R that I've added especially for those projects that require a tad more structure and opacity. This weight still has a lovely fluidity to it, but will provide just a little more structure and generally won't require a lining. It's a great weight for pants, jackets, dresses, jumpsuits, shorts, skirts, tanks and blouses. Please feel free to order a swatch card to check the opacity, hand feel, colour and texture for this new range prior to purchase if required.

A Muna and Broad xxx springs to mind for this colour as does an Axis dress from Pattern Cut Patterns or a TNT Zadie jumpsuit from Paper Theory. I love this colours ability to pair with neutrals and bolds so the options of how to work it into your wardrobe really are endless.
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.
If machine pre-washing, 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!
Hand washing is the preference for most when caring for linen hand mades. This will help to retain the colour vibrancy and give you longevity for your garment. Alternatively, try reducing the amount of times you wash your hand mades wherever possible. The environment and your garments will thank you!
Linen 200gsm - Citronelle 0.5m
Both fabrics overlocked and washed. Fabric washed very well and is now hanging over ironing board waiting to be cut out. All fabric I have purchased from A&R Fabrics has been of excellent quality and orders are always dispatched promptly.
The swatch for this linen didn’t do it justice, far exceeded my expectations! It’s beautifully soft and sturdy enough for outerwear. I’d love this in a range of colours too but the natural colour is wonderful and showcases the weave.
