Introduction:

Made in Europe by a company of world renown, with centuries of expertise and tradition. This 100% Linen gives you the benefits of both wonderful natural fibres. 

This fabric will be cool and breathable, get softer with washing & wear and linen is impervious to moths and resists dirt and stains. Linen will not form lint or pill and can be washed at high temperatures with only moderate shrinkage. The characteristic slubs (once viewed as a fault) are now part of the aesthetic appeal of quality linen fabric. 

Colour:

This overall washed mid-denim blue-toned fabric gets its pleasing French blue hue from the use of a classic white heavier gauge yarn sitting on the warp and the use of fine gauge mid-denim blue yarn throughout the weft. This creates a pleasing multi-toned, sketchy light to mid-denim hue. 

Properties:

Lightly textured with characteristic linen slubs.

Stable and hardwearing.

Malleable and soft enough to produce gathers and pleats and tucks.

Reassuring weighty drape quality.

Garment Suggestions:

Create cool and comfortable summer classics or staple garments for year-round wear.  Construct wardrobe favourites from classic shirts and T-shirt style tops, dresses and pretty blouses, such as Sagebrush Top and Anthea Blouse.

Linens perfect use for this textured slubby linen for summer styles such as the Tulip Dress and Triple Tuck Smock from Sew Different and the Megan Nielson - Protea or for Lagenlook styles, such as patterns from Boho Banjo and fashion looks of Gudrun Sjoden.

Create loose layering vests and A-line styles, shark bite overtunics, sleeveless overdresses and skirts. Incorporate into textile art-like pieces and mix with embroidery, weaving and lace appliqué.

 Home Furnishing:

Light and airy window treatments with a very boho free-spirited look.

Use as a table decoration for country-style weddings with wildflowers etc.
