This first-rate ex-designer linen and cotton blend fabric sports the lightly textured style of linen, expertly woven in a light Oxford style weave using a multi-tonal sky blue and white yarn combination. The feature 2.5cm border that appears on one selvedge (photo 4) has a simple provincial style that is ideal for use on sleeves, lower hems and other areas of interest.


Running Stitch Border Sky Blue has a high thread count of superfine alternating yarns and an expert weave that produces a beautiful pastel summer sky tone, as happy and uplifting as the blue sky and fluffy clouds! View other ex-designer Linen fabrics from this collection.


The high thread count and Oxford style weave produces a pleasing cool, absorbent, breathable and stable light/medium handle, with a reassuring drape quality when used in longer lengths. The close weave of alternating sky blue and white together resembles a finely sewn horizontal running stitch. The additional bonus feature of a vertical border that sits on one selvedge makes for creative expression (photo 4).

    Beautiful fabric

    This is my second purchase from Fabworks, fast becoming my favourite online fabric retailer!

    This cotton linen fabric lived up to the many other positive reviews, lovely to work with, feels super comfortable and superb quality for the price.

    I made the Jensen shirt pattern by Wardrobe By Me, hopefully summer will return in time to wear it out this year!
