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!


Weight: Medium / Light

GSM: 140

Composition: 42% Linen & 58% Cotton

Width: 145cm / 57inch

Pattern Repeat: N/A


Maytime Lilac is the colour of so many spring flowers which all miraculously seem to burst forth in May. This perfect lilac colour boasts rich saturated hues. Think of lilac trees, Wisteria and bluebells, their heady perfume fragrancing the spring air and you have the colour its almost soft amethyst with a pastel undertone- lavender has these lilac tones too. It's no coincidence - bees are attracted to purple flowers!

Sit this stunner alongside similar hues, Bougainvillaea Magenta, for a combination that's as perfect as nature's flowers. For a fab contrast team with Pistachio Glacé for a sweet combination!  Rich pastel lovers will adore Maytime Lilac. Team it with all your favourite pastels and brights from the House Linen Oxfords for a joyful rainbow of fun sewing!!

The Oxford Linens 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)

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.

Beautiful fabric

Just gorgeous classy fabric with a beautiful handle, in a subtle colour. I don't know what I'll make with it, so I bought plenty! Either a dress or a tunic, I think it'll be nice to work with. Very quick delivery as usual for Fabworks

Beautiful soft handle fabric that will be suitable for lighterweight trousers or a heavier weight shirt. I like muted shades and thought that the May time colour was closer to that preference. The colour is paler than it appears on my ipad screen but that was a plus. I’m making a gorgeous Tilton shirt (lots of pieces). Delivery is really fast. I ordered Thursday evening and the parcel arrived today, Saturday, lunchtime. I enjoy my shopping experience with Fabworks.
