Introduction:

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!

Colour:

Sundown Orange is a delightful soft orange shade and boasts rich saturated hues. This colour is full of warmth and energy and perfect for boosting your spring-summer makes. Sundown Orange is the orange of its namesake when the evening sky is ablaze like molten lava. It is also the colour of juicy canteloupe melon flesh, fresh red salmon and orange coral. 

Hot pastels like this winner look fabulous alongside similar hues for a graduated look as subtle as the sunset itself. Colour lovers will adore Sundown Orange. Team it with your favourite brights from the House Linen Oxfords for a joyful rainbow of fun sewing!!

Properties:

The Twill Linens have been created through dyeing and finishing a twill woven linen 43% & cotton 57% blend fabric. The diagonals of the superfine twill weave sit alongside a scattering of characteristic subtle slubs, resulting in a lightly brushed finish.

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.

Garment Suggestions:

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

Cordelia Trousers by The Pattern Stash: An excellent make for such light/medium linens, giving that comfy yet distinguished look found with wide-legged trousers. Why not hack it yourself for a pair of super smart city shorts?

Background:

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 are 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.
