Natural Washed Utility Linen is a new addition to our fabulous linen collection. Made in Europe by a company of world renown, with centuries of expertise and tradition. This beautifully simple linen fabric is very similar (but not the same) to a legacy fabric that we once stocked (sold out Sept '23).
This perfectly plain and simple unbleached linen is just as nature intended and boasts a dried flax hue, a soft sandy overall beige tone. It is perfect as a stand-alone piece or for artistic creations, unbleached natural fibre fabrics are prized by historical costumiers, fashion and interior designers, and artists alike. Natural Washed Utility Linen is ideal for dying to your own specifications, a dream for artisans of all tastes. This unbleached natural hue is truly versatile and neutral, working well with khaki, green, beige and autumnal tones and of course classic crisp white for a superb cross-seasonal, layered, chic linen look.
Natural Washed Utility Linen maintains a strong stable handle and close weave, making it both practical and hard-wearing. This mediumweight linen is ideal for a plethora of wonderful projects.
Featuring a softly washed finish that produces and soft drape quality, making it ideal for softer silhouettes with a casual easy-going style.
Linen has been used for centuries because of its beneficial properties: cool and breathable, gets softer with washing & wear, is impervious to moths and resists dirt and stains. The characteristic slubs, once viewed as a fault, are still part of the aesthetic appeal of linen.
