Introduction:

Welcome to Fabworks’ House Linen: a collection of carefully curated colours, created from a base cloth of linen and cotton.

Initially sourced as deadstock overruns, we rescued this fabric that had a light washed colour, which meant that it would be perfect to overdye. Now rejuvenated and repurposed into some of our favourite shades, the House Linen collection features a range of hand-picked hues that sit together in a paint box-like palette. Voilà!

Colour:

Verdant Veridian echoes the precious copper residues reflected in nature's geology. Picture the deep blue-green of malachite, raw green jade and emeralds, freshly hued from the earth and full of the power and the force of life-giving nature.

Look to the heavens and glimpse the Northern Lights with their electrifying and mesmerising veridian hues and you will see echoes of this precious colour too!

Properties:

The Twill Linens have been created through dyeing and finishing a twill woven linen 43% & cotton 57% blend fabric. The diagonals of the superfine twill weave sit alongside a scattering of characteristic subtle slubs, resulting in a lightly brushed finish.

These cosy but not cloying, cool and breathable fabric is stable yet drapey, and features a super soft handle that is simply sublime, perfect for a multitude of garments.

One of the many benefits that the House Linen offers is that it will wash and wear forever, only improving with age due to the hard-wearing properties of its natural fibres: cotton and linen.

Garment Suggestions:

Simple slashed-neck T-shirt style tops and classic shirts are perfect for standalone garments made using House Linen and will become key pieces in your wardrobe for year-round wear. Alternatively, create wide-legged trousers, tunics, smocks, and summer dresses.

Cordelia Trousers by The Pattern Stash: An excellent make for such light/medium linens, giving that comfy yet distinguished look found with wide-legged trousers. Why not hack it yourself for a pair of super smart city shorts?

Lynsey Dungarees Pattern: Use to your advantage and make with slouchy comfy styles for easy wear summer attire.

Megan Nielsen Patterns' Protea Capsule Wardrobe Set: Ideal for pretty full-gathered styles, stunning outfits and a selection of versatile tops!

Layer Up Collection by Sew Different: Perfect for creating a capsule wardrobe of fresh S/S linen makes that will take you right through into autumn.

Other Uses:

These House Linens will make superb linens for your home: pillow slips, lavender pillows, table runners, table covers, napkins, provincial-style café curtains and aprons too! Add embroidery for individual gifts sure to become heirlooms of the future.

Background:

Now in its fifth generation, the family behind Fabworks has been working with 'textile waste' for over 100 years, whether that be in reclaimed textiles, cleaning rags & wipers, shoddy, loose fibres, or second-hand clothing. Fast forward to the 21st century, where fabric and sewing notions are the company’s main focus, we now find ourselves breaking new ground with a bespoke selection of fabrics that we have dyed in the UK, just in time for S/S 2023.

A delight to wear

I received this fabric very quickly on ordering but held off on reviewing until I'd worked with and worn it. I am very happy with the fabric and the colour-matched thread I requested. Will definitely order from this range again.

Working: This fabric is very light and soft. Barely shrunk on washing. Dead easy to press for seaming (I was even able to finger-press some finer details quite crisply rather than risk burning my fingers with the iron). I didn't have any major concerns about fraying while working with my cut pieces.

Wear: I have rustled some up into a pair of wide-leg trousers. As it feels so soft and thin I'm not entirely convinced how long it will hold up in very hard-wearing areas (like the crotch for me, chub rub always eats my trousers!) but only time will tell. It's so comfortable to wear, not at all see-through when worn despite the light weight, and the colour is absolutely stunning. Picture is of the trousers after a day of wear, the fabric wrinkles about as much as you'd expect from the composition.
