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!


House Linen Oxford - Shepherd's Delight is a delightful sweet pink shade and boasts rich saturated hues. It is like the most perfect rose, almost heady with fragrance. This colour is full of warmth and is gentle like the pink of an evening sky full of hope. "Red sky at night - Shepherd's Delight" (describes the pink tinge to the evening sky promising a fine day tomorrow).

Soft pastels like this winner look fabulous alongside similar hues for a graduated look or sit this pink alongside Tulipa Red for a delicious pink-red combination! Pastel lovers will adore Shepherds Delight. Team it with Pistachio Glacé for soft ice cream tones and/ or your favourite brights from the House Linen Oxfords for a joyful rainbow of fun sewing!!  


The House Linen Oxfords have been created through dyeing and finishing a fine Oxford woven linen (42%) & cotton (58%) blend fabric. Due to its textural weave detail (akin to a Panama or Hopsack), the result is a cosy but not cloying, cool and breathable fabric that is stable, soft and drapey, with a washed and worn feel, 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.

The House Linen has been created using two different base cloths, please note the difference between House Linen Twill and House Linen Oxford. There is minimal weight/GSM difference between the two fabrics, allowing you to interchange easily - use individually or try colour-blocking styles for fun combinations!


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 is 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.

Garments Suggestions:

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


Shepherd's Delight 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.
