Colour:

Autumn - Silky Linen & Viscose is just as its name suggests a fabulously soft, cool, breathable linen fabric, woven in a classic diagonal twill weave with superfine silken autumn spice yarns throughout the warp and weft. The classic twill weave and warming tone are the perfect combination of practicality and style.

Properties:

Linen has been used for centuries because of its beneficial properties; cool and breathable, getting 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 (viewed as a fault once upon a time) are now part of the aesthetic appeal of quality linen fabric. It is stable, soft and has the feel of a favourite linen garment with a pre-washed hand. This medium-weight fabric is closely woven and has excellent opacity. The viscose content in this stunner adds the silken sheen and seriously soft and drapey hand.

Garment Suggestions:

Autumn - Silky Linen & Viscose 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, with a reassuring drape, plus neat pleats, and pin-tucks. So all you have to do is decide what to make. 

The Layer Up Collection by Sew Different is ideal for creating a capsule wardrobe of fresh spring-summer linen (& linen blend) makes you will want to take through into autumn. 

Soft, breathable and comfortable you will want to make a wardrobe full of key pieces for a superb, summer linen look. Its medium weight and soft drape make it the ideal candidate for a plethora of uses from the stylish to the practical. Our Pattern Stash - Lynsey Dungarees are the perfect utility-style clothing as is The Ilford Jacket. 

Put Autumn to use for simple boat-necked tops and classic shirts, it's also perfect for creating layering garments such as vest tops, drapey tunics and pinafore dresses. For an on-trend boho/ prairie style. The Megan Nielson Protea Capsule Collection is an ideal place to start for these soft gathered styles.

For more structured styles create a classic safari-style suit or chic shirt dress with a fabric belt, patch and flap pockets and smart epaulettes.
