Introduction:

100% Linen Micro District Check - Grigio is a top-notch linen fabric that comes to you in a classic micro-district-checked design. Mid-Italian grey and white make this fabric an ideal choice for a multitude of practical and stylish sewing room projects to take you throughout summer and into autumn and winter with serious style.

Suiting style-checked fabrics convey an air of confidence and style. This perennial go-to design is ideal for understated elegance and key pieces.

Colour:

Italian grey (the colour of Roman marble) and fresh white are expertly woven together in alternating groups and intersecting fine lines throughout the warp and weft in classic cool linen yarns and create the iconic design we know as Prince of Wales Check. This marvellous micro combination is perfect for classic ensembles full linen suits or chic tailored dresses. Alternatively, combine with more distinctive hues as a grounding tone.

Properties:

Linen has been used for centuries because of its beneficial properties; cool and breathable, gets 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 (approx. 4%).

The characteristic slubs (once viewed as a fault) are now part of the aesthetic appeal of quality linen fabric. Grigio is stable, and lightly textured, with the reassuring naturally absorbent and comfortable feel of a favourite linen garment, lightly crisp and will soften with washing and wear. This light-medium-weight fabric is closely woven with a classic suiting style.

Garment Suggestions:

Grigio will form crisp details (with a little light interfacing), on collars, cuffs and waistbands. Used in quantity it will form soft and full feminine gathers, plus neat pleats with a reassuring drape. All you have to do is decide what to make. 

Make a wardrobe full of key pieces for a superb, summer linen look. Its perfect hand makes it the ideal candidate for a plethora of uses from the stylish to the practical.
