European laundered linen, tumbled at the mill for softness. A deep burnt sienna shade.
143cm wide, 185gsm or 5.5oz.
The 185 dress weight linen is a go to linen for all dress making and also works well for lighter curtains for a casual, less refined look.
It is produced in small batches in Eastern Europe where there is a strong heritage of spinning and weaving linen fabric. Made by a mill who uses electricity supplied solely from renewable energy sources and OEKO Tex certified.
Wash at 30 degrees with a non bio detergent. Do not tumble. Shake out and dry flat. Linen will always seize up after washing but as soon as you start to use/wear it the fibres relax again.
If you are using this linen for curtains we recommend using a lining to prevent fading.
More about linen:
Linen is naturally stain resistant, does not pile, and is moth repellent. It is easy to wash as it can sustain high temperatures, is has very little if no shrinkage and is very strong.
It is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, hypo allergenic and thermoregulating, it will also absorb up 20% moisture before feeling damp.
As the linen fibres have low elasticity (which causes it to crease) it will wear in any areas that are repeatedly folded in the same place for a long time, however it does have much better abrasion resistance than say cotton.
