Fabric Specifications

Linen Fabric Care

Our linen is suitable for soft furnishings, craft, drapery, quilting and light traffic upholstery projects,

The fabric’s hand-feel is stiff, making it crisp and easy to work with when sewing up your final products, and softens over time as it wears. The fabric has been pre-shrunk and is great for small and floor cushions, lamp shades, wall hangings, drapery, pot baskets and other home applications.

Being a natural fiber slubbing or lumps in the yarn will occur, as the fabric is used the slubbing will move around and reveal some un-printed areas.
