This first-rate ex-designer linen and cotton blend fabric sports the lightly textured style of linen, expertly woven in a light Oxford style weave using a multi-tonal hot orange and white yarn combination. The feature 2.5cm border that appears on one selvedge (photo 4) has a simple provincial style that is ideal for use on sleeves, lower hems and other areas of interest.
Running Stitch Border Coral has a high thread count of superfine alternating yarns and an expert weave that produces a beautiful pastel coral tone, as deliciously fruity as a Cantaloupe melon! View other ex-designer Linen fabrics from this collection.
The high thread count and Oxford style weave produces a pleasing cool, absorbent, breathable and stable light/medium handle, with a reassuring drape quality when used in longer lengths. The close weave of alternating hot orange and white together resembles a finely sewn horizontal running stitch. The additional bonus feature of a vertical border that sits on one selvedge makes for creative expression (photo 4).
