Spotted Linen Fabric
What is linen fabric?
Linen is a type of fabric made from the fibres of the flax plant. It has a distinctive and beautiful texture, and is often considered to be a fabric of luxury, elegance, and comfort. Because it’s made from natural fibres it is hypoallergenic and skin-friendly. Linen also happens to be a very strong fabric. It can withstand repeated washings, and this durability makes it the perfect choice for bedding, blinds, and curtains (linen curtains can keep your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer). Lastly, linen is a versatile fabric – it can be used for a variety of sewing projects including dressmaking, soft furnishings, and more. If you’re interested in working with linen, order free samples and see if their colour, weight, and quality suits your needs.

How do I care for linen fabrics?
Wondering how to wash and care for your linen? If you have any of our plain and unprinted fabric, you can wash it in the washing machine (just keep in mind that if the linen is not pre-washed, it will shrink in the first wash). And if you have any of our printed fabrics, we recommend you take it to the dry cleaners (we use Timpsons). This is to ensure the prints do not fade. If you’re unable to take the printed fabric to the dry cleaners, then we recommend you gently hand wash it in a clean sink or basin. Alternatively, if there are no visible stains, you can give the fabric a simple dusting or gentle hoovering. If you have lined linen curtains, we recommend you take them to the dry cleaners, since the linings may otherwise shrink.
