Belgian linen is considered to be the best in the world because the flax plants thrive in the Belgian climate. We bring our linens from the factory with the Masters of Linen seal and the top quality standards of manufacturing. This linen fabric is tightly woven and crisp and it is perfect for a design with more textured details.
The beauty of this linen fabric is in special weaving of different weft and warp colours. The white warp and light green weft produce a stunning very light pastel green colour. We tried to find the closest colour match with Pantone Fashion Cotton Passport.
Most linen fabrics you see have the usual smooth finish. But this fabric was tumbled to give a lovely crumpled effect for a casual look. You don't need to pre-wash it, it's already been done during the final finish. This medium weight linen feels wonderful, it is so easy to wear and straightforward to maintain. Just wash it in cold water and iron with plenty of steam.
This tumbled linen fabric for dressmaking is just waiting for you. Think outside the box for this one. Make a light jacket that is above the grade. It is fantastic for casual shirts and dresses, pants, shorts and skirts. What a lovely texture! Because linen is so easy to work with, you can use this fabric for many different projects. And don't forget other projects for your home or cottage, such as pillowcases and table napkins. Watch this video sewing tutorial for beginners where I show you how to make a pillowcase from this amazing fabric.
Linen is an eco-friendly and sustainable fabric you would be proud to wear. The more you wash it, the softer it becomes.
