A chunky substantial basketweave 100% linen that is strong but smooth, with an almost silky hand feel. This would be perfect for upholstery, as an embroidery backing, cushions but as well some items of clothing that require weight like a circle skirt or jacket.
Limited quantity, once it's gone it's gone!
Linen is a hardy material that doesn't need any additional water for irrigation - just rain water - unlike cotton, which needs an awful lot. The flax plant does need to be replanted each year, but it actually helps keep the soil fertile. Produced in Belgium, the carbon footprint is kept within that country with just a minimal amount to us here, and also production facilities are generally top notch.
Linen wears beautifully for many years, and darns nicely too. This fabric has also been saved from landfill due to overstock. Breathable and versatile.
Suitable for the washing machine and tumble dryer. Medium-hot iron.
Turn the machine down to 30 degrees for a more environmentally friendly wash. In Europe alone, if every household turned its washing temperature down to 30°C, we could save 12 million tons of CO2 a year.
We also recommend line drying as this reduces energy usage and looks after your textiles for longer. Use a mild detergent, light botanical refresher or even just steam the item you've made in your bathroom after a shower.
