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.
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.
